Here is the second novel in the blockbuster trilogy that reveals the never-before-told story of the young Han Solo. Set before the Star Wars movie adventures, these books chronicle the coming-of-age of the galaxy's most famous con man, smuggler, and thief.
Solo is now a fugitive from the Imperial Navy. But he has made a valuable friend in a former Wookiee slave named Chewbacca, who has sworn Han a life debt. Han will need all the help he can get. For the Ylesian Hutts have dispatched the dreaded bounty hunter Boba Fett to track down the man who already outsmarted them once.
But Han and Chewie find themselves in even bigger trouble when they agree to lend their services to the crime lords Jiliac and Jabba the Hutt. Suddenly the two smugglers are thrust into the middle of a battle between the might of the Empire and the treachery of their outlaw allies - a battle where even victory means death!

Great. Very entertaining and a good character actor.
Strengthened my interest in Han Solo as a scoundrel with a compassionate heart.
I'm hoping the FINAL BOOK (not this one but the 3rd installment) gets us up to where Han Solo....well, I don't want to ruin it. But I'd like to see him do the Kessle run in less than 12 parsecs. 😜
Love this story, and wish Lucas arts would make a live action version. Really needs an unabridged version... I'd be more than happy to record an unabridged version for all three books, with help...
