To make his biggest score, Hana€™s ready to take even bigger risks. But even he cana€™t do this job solo. NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Han Solo should be basking in his moment of glory. After all, the cocky smuggler and captain of the Millennium Falcon just played a key role in the daring raid that destroyed the Death Star and landed the first serious blow to the Empire in its war against the Rebel Alliance. But after losing the reward his heroics earned him, Hana€™s got nothing to celebrate. Especially since hea€™s deep in debt to the ruthless crime lord Jabba the Hutt. Therea€™s a bounty on Hana€™s heada€”and if he cana€™t cough up the credits, hea€™ll surely pay with his hide. The only thing that can save him is a kinga€™s ransom. Or maybe a gangstera€™s fortune? Thata€™s what a mysterious stranger is offering in exchange for Hana€™s less-than-legal help with a riskier-than-usual caper. The payoff will be more than enough for Han to settle up with Jabbaa€”and ensure he never has to haggle with the Hutts again. All he has to do is infiltrate the ultra-fortified stronghold of a Black Sun crime syndicate underboss and crack the galaxya€™s most notoriously impregnable safe. It sounds like a job for miracle workers . . . or madmen.
