About a man who is imprisoned on this most hellish prison planet. Recruited and given a new identity in order to assassinate a galactic president candidate (or somebody else important on that scale). Carries out the assassination on board a space station with the help of a very lovely and irrisistibly seductive lady. The woman helps him escape the space station but - evidently - doesn't escape herself. I seem to remember she had silvery skin, but that might be my imagination.

I searched with Google for hours, but didn't turn up with anything.

Some of this sounds vaguely like the Sten books by Allen Cole. I think one of the books has him assassinating an impostor of the Eternal Emperor. Sten spent some time on a prison planet before escaping and joining an elite fighting unit etc etc.

Some of the details don't quite match but it might be worth checking out.:confused:

I am very sure of the details I wrote down. And it wasn't a series either, just an online story. But thanks anyway, and I might like what you wrote also! :)
