At the close of the twenty-fourth 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 teams’ 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.

couldn't get into the characters

Lots of action but I couldn't keep the characters straight - they just weren't real enough. I read a lot of sci fi so it's not that, they were just cardboard.

Solid Action

Steve Perry does a fantastic job with creating the plot and characters. The banter between the "Cutters" provides a lot of humor. Great action! RC Bray was great! Delivering diverse accents, including that of an alien 'K." Solid action/adventure/Sci-Fi. I am hooked ready for the next installment.
