The fifth Rat novel. Angelina and diGriz plan a belated honeymoon on the planet Paraiso. Here, the corrupt dictator, General Julio Zapilote, is about to have himself re-elected in another rigged election. Jim and Angelina decide to become involved in the election themselves, putting up a disguised diGriz as their candidate, and fighting Zapilote at his own game with their criminal skills.
