Also published as an eBook.
DESCRIPTION:
Raspold is an agent of the Federation Extra-Terrestrial Criminal Apprehension Bureau (FECAB). He gets the order to bring in the criminal Heinrich Nge, who has stolen the Federation destroyer George A. Custer. For that he had to go to "that dark planet beyond the rim of the Galaxy." Raspold did find Nge there, but also something else, something unexpected.
