Essef - The ambassadors of the Terran Diplomatic Corps have empowered both Terran space pirates and alien space invaders, known as the Hatracks, who are preying upon peaceful Terran colonists and traders. The Hatracks are planning to breed humans for food. Retief eventually straightens out the mess, escapes a firing squad ordered for him by a senior ambassador, and negotiates a peaceful settlement with his two-fisted diplomacy. There is also a marvelous rescue scene in which Ben Magnan, of all people, saves the day with style and cunning. As with the earlier Retief books, there is a balance between action and satire.
