Scoundrels: Star Wars Legends

Timothy Zahn

To make his largest rating, Han’s able to take even greater risks.
But even he can’t do this activity solo.

Han Solo will be basking in his second of glory. finally, the cocky smuggler and captain of the Millennium Falcon simply performed a key position within the bold raid that destroyed the dying megastar and landed the 1st critical blow to the Empire in its battle opposed to the insurgent Alliance. yet after wasting the gift his heroics earned him, Han’s acquired not anything to rejoice. in particular due to the fact he’s deep in debt to the ruthless crime lord Jabba the Hutt. There’s a bounty on Han’s head—and if he can’t cough up the credit, he’ll without doubt pay together with his disguise. the one factor which may shop him is a king’s ransom. or even a gangster’s fortune? That’s what a mysterious stranger is providing in alternate for Han’s less-than-legal support with a riskier-than-usual caper. The payoff should be good enough for Han to settle up with Jabba—and be certain he by no means has to haggle with the Hutts again.
All he has to do is infiltrate the ultra-fortified stronghold of a Black solar crime syndicate underboss and crack the galaxy’s such a lot notoriously impregnable secure. It feels like a role for miracle employees . . . or madmen. So Han assembles a gallery of rogues who're a bit of both—including his fundamental sidekick Chewbacca and the crafty Lando Calrissian. If somebody can sidestep, lie to, and defeat seriously armed thugs, killer droids, and Imperial brokers alike—and pull off the heist of the century—it’s Solo’s scoundrels. yet will their crime quite pay, or will it price them the last word price?
