Science Fiction Suspense/Thriller | Military

Chaos is rampant in the galaxy at the end of the 24th Century. R. A. "Rags" Cutter, a former top-ranked officer in the Detached Guerilla Forces, now heads up the Cutter Force Initiative. This hand-picked, skillfully trained and highly focused mercenary team, known as the Cutters, is comprised of both male and female, humans and aliens, who are experts in their specific fields. They offer a wide range of services, from security to assassination and everything in between, to whoever has enough money to pay their exorbitant prices.

The Cutters' newest client is Rajah Ramal of New Mumbai, who hires the team to locate and rescue his daughter Indira, who's been kidnapped before her upcoming wedding can take place. Identifying the perpetrator(s) is the team's first priority, but it's not easy, since the local insurgents aren't the only ones involved in the unrest surrounding the Rajah and his regime. What the Cutters thought was going to be an easy job turns into something much more deadly, especially when an attempt is made on the Rajah's life. With more surprises in store, it will take all of the team's cunning abilities, as well as military expertise, to bring about a satisfactory conclusion to this situation.

THE RAMAL EXTRACTION by Steve Perry is a cutting- edge, militaristic sci-fi novel chockfull of futuristic names, atypical jargon and unique characters in keeping with a setting of the late 24th Century. There's also plenty of action and adventure and blood and guts, as well as limitless glory for the Cutters.

Learn more about The Ramal Extraction


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…
