Alone on a island with a beautiful/willing woman

Taken to task after Star Loot, Grimes has his captains certificate suspended. As a reward he is made a planetary governor where endentured servants (read slaves here) are taken in from disasters anywhere in the galaxy. His job as assigned is to find a means of getting the planetary president and the local commander of star forces gone in a means that the Survey Service can come in and arrest them. They wreck his air ship which comes down on an island in the middle of a river area with lethal birds/plants/fish with little or no protection. His marooned companion is a beautiful and willing woman.

Another Very Good Book!

I am very please with this saga. For the most part it is well written with very good narration.
I'm looking foreward to the next Grimes book!
