A Must Read for fans and even Star Wars newbies

This book was awesome! Think Ocean's 11 (the original one with the Rat Pack) with a Star Wars flare. It has you turning pages eager for the next turn. And you don't have to have read every book in the genre to be able to appreciate it either. You don't even really have to have seen the movies to get it. It's great for those who like heist/intrigue type books. For the fans who have poured over every book ever written it give a little extra background detail to many characters you know and love. It's well worth the read. I loved it!!

I am a fan of Zahn and the Star Wars universe...but this was jus

I am a fan of Zahn and the Star Wars universe...but this was just not good. Honestly it felt more like a fan fic off the internet than a Zahn Star Wars novel. It passed the time, but I can't say I enjoyed anything about it.

    Another masterpiece

    Timothy Zahn's Star Wars books are some of the best works of this particular genre. Intricate schemes, plot twists, surprise endings- what's not to like? This one offers a fascinating look at the world of crime, Star Wars style. Han Solo and the faithful Chewbacca round up at team of elite scoundrels, including the always dashing Lando Calrisian, to crack a crime syndicate's 'unbreakable' security system. Thieves, pickpockets, hackers, con men, gamblers, explosive experts- reminds you of Ocean's Twelve, doesn't it?

    Han was a little "off," but still a great read.

    Good Zahn Star Wars novel

    Although not up to par with his Thrawn trilogy, Timothy Zahn does deliver a good Oceans's Eleven style caper with interesting characters (as well as mentioning some other characters we haven't heard from awhile), intrigue, action and drama.

    Why it's a four and not a three ......

    Okay; Han Solo was out of character in this novel. He's not the planner - he's just simply not. But; without Luke, or Leia around I can see why Zahn HAD to make Han the planner for this group of Scoundrels.

    Loved that Lando came back to trying to be friends with Han once more (read A.C. Crispin's Han Solo trilogy) ... and have another major misunderstanding between the two friends; that lead up to Lando's betrayal in ESB.

    Loved how Zahn introduced Winter to Han - without Leia being around.

    Solo strikes back

    Solo and his gang of scoundrels will ride the falcon back to obliterate any unlikely foes with nothing less than a little less of a scandal,deceit, and tossed with a side of romance (where's the princess at?) Much faith for handsome Solo one does have. Jabba and he will be forever friends in this treachorous galaxy polluted by the dark side.
