Crossposted at Bookstooge.booklikes.blogspot.wordpress.leafmarks.com by express permission of this reviewer.   Title: The Ramal Extraction Series: Cutter's Wars Author: Steve Perry Rating: 4.5 of 5 Stars Genre: SF Pages: 262     Synopsis: Cutter, leader of a group of mercenaries, hires out to find a kidnapped daughter of a powerful leader on an out of the way world. Cutter and Co must navigate local politics, galactic military law and a hidden enemy's agenda. And nothing is at it seems.   My Thoughts: I really, really, really enjoyed this book. I am not a huge fan of military SF most of the time, mainly because the authors get all A.C.R.O.N.Y.M.'y and totally gun porn'd and both of those things annoy the bejabs out of me. Perry does a little, just enough to make it feel Military, but not so much as to annoy me.   The plot was fast, furious, twisty [well, it was meant to be twisty but I think we all see the reality a klick away] and just the right amount of character and adventure.   Characters got me confused as to who was who, except for the alien. But considering that the military terms for people ALWAYS confuses me, no matter the book or series, I simply gloss over the names and enjoy them doing things. Background was given to the main characters in story form, as they each recall the first time they killed someone.   Plot was simple Rescue Kidnapped Princess while being Screwed by Somebody. Once you realize that things aren't on the up and up, it is pretty easy to see who the mastermind is, even if you're not sure why. And he gets his in the end.   Honestly, I'm not sure this deserves 4.5stars, but I enjoyed it enough that this time around it gets that from me. When I re-read this in a couple of years [5 to 10 in all probability] we'll see if the like'ability was just my initial impression or something longer lasting. " ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0425256626, Mass Market Paperback)

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 fight 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 the Rajah Ramal of New Mumbai, the teams’ first task is to identify the kidnapper. The obvious suspects are insurgents who want to overthrow the rajanate, 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…
