At the close of the 24th century, a series of revolutions has caused the galaxy to descend into chaos. With the Galactic Union's army stretched thin, mercenary units have arisen for those who have the need - and the means - to hire them.
Captained by former Detached Guerrilla Forces Colonel R. A. "Rags" Cutter, the Cutter Force Initiative is one of the best. A specialized team consisting of both aliens and humans, the Cutters offer services ranging from combat training and protection to extraction and assassination - as long as the target deserves it and their employer makes good on payday.
When they're hired to find and rescue Indira, the soon-to-be-married daughter of Rajah Ramal of New Mumbai, the team's first task is to identify the kidnapper. The obvious suspects are insurgents who want to overthrow the rajahnate, but as other forces enter the game and an assassination attempt is made on Ramal, the Cutters realize that their in-and-out extraction job is about to get a lot more interesting - and a lot more lethal.

"HOSTAGE RECOVERY-ACTION DETECTIVE"
Easy going action detective story with great narration.
If you want something simple without lots of baggage and mind wobbling details, this is definitely for you.
And despite it's simplicity the story is very good.
