We once had a Star Wars costume contest at work and every single guy dressed as Han Solo. How can his name be Solo if he's always with Chewie?

This is a classic heist tale with a Star Wars twist and one of the better Star Wars novels I have read. Solo, desperate for credits to pay his debts to Jabba, agrees to rip off the second biggest criminal organization in the galaxy, Black Sun. Who better to help than his on again, off again BFF, Lando Calrissian?

In true Han fashion, trouble ensues as the field begins to fill with more players than there are banthas on Tatooine. And naturally, the Empire has a hand to play too. Enjoy.

Personally not the best Timothy Zahn book that I've read, but as he does so well, Zahn creates a story with likable and semi-likable characters besides the main three we already know. The characters had good chemistry with each other as well as a nice sense of comradery and teamwork. It's cool that Han gets introduced to Winter and Kell, but I don't think they really had to be in the story. There are nine bad words in this book, but at least it stopped there. It was seriously starting to get annoying. The middle part was just one bad word after another....This book is a good Introduction to the Black Sun criminal organization and the Falleens if you have not read "Shadows Of The Empire," and the surprise twist ending was something I expected, but I was surprised to find out who the victim funder really was. Lastly, the festivals described in this book sounded fun and super awesome! I should have been invited!

It's a fun Ocean's 11, or Dirty Dozen style story of a motley crew of (mostly) likeable specialists on a heist caper.

It makes for what I call "fun beach reading", and is entertaining... but it isn't one of the greats.

Han Solo doesn't drink, swear, womanize, lose his temper, and basically is depicted utterly NOT Han Solo-like. It's almost as if the author wasn't even familiar with the character at all and the strange Tim Zahn version of Han Solo is not even recognizable to fan's of the EU. He's boring and a perfect gentleman, not the cocky scoundrel depicted in the movies and 50 other novels.

Excellent story with surprise at the end that makes it special.
