This book was written by Harry Harrison as an interactive tie-in to his popular science fiction novels about a futuristic thief known as the Stainless Steel Rat. The title of the book isn’t very accurate, though, as the book doesn't actually allow the reader to take on the role of the Stainless Steel Rat; instead, the player works under his command while tracking down an evil scientist. The book features no game system, though coin-flipping comes into play from time to time, and the challenge level is decidedly low, since it is actually impossible to fail the mission (though it requires some skill to avoid getting stuck going in circles, as in the Time Machine series).
