To make his biggest score, Han’s ready to take even bigger risks. But even he can’t do this job solo.   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, Han’s got nothing to celebrate. Especially since 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 credits, he’ll surely pay with his hide. The only thing that can save him is a king’s ransom. Or maybe a gangster’s fortune? That’s what a mysterious stranger is offering in exchange for Han’s less-than-legal help with a riskier-than-usual caper. The payoff will be more than enough for Han to settle up with Jabba—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 galaxy’s most notoriously impregnable safe. It sounds like a job for miracle workers . . . or madmen. So Han assembles a gallery of rogues who are a little of both—including his indispensable sidekick Chewbacca and the cunning Lando Calrissian. If anyone can dodge, deceive, and defeat heavily armed thugs, killer droids, and Imperial agents alike—and pull off the heist of the century—it’s Solo’s scoundrels. But will their crime really pay, or will it cost them the ultimate price?

4.0 An amusing diversion
What an amusing side trip. And now, I have a book I need to add a copy to my limited stash of Star wars books. Taking place between A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back, it does offer the, albeit brief, explanation as to why Han still owes Jabba after all those ammo lockers of credits were loaded on...

I enjoy a heist story, and that this was. Many of the principal characters didn't *quite* fit into those roles. If found I enjoyed it more by disregarding what I know of Han Solo, Lando Calrissian and many others from the expanded universe. Well, maybe not Lando - his character is a great face-man. ...

4.0 Scoundrels (Star Wars)
A good non-jedi romp with some good old friends. Sadly, Chewbacca doesn't get much action, but he IS there.Several times it was mentioned how Han had had the reward from A New Hope stolen from him. Either I missed something in some other novel, or Zahn is setting up info for future novels.

3.0 Scoundrels: Star Wars
Ocean's 11 in space? With Han freaking Solo filling the Clooney role? Set in the past where Chewie is still alive? Written by Timothy Zahn? IT HAS TO BE FIVE STARS. But sadly, it's not. What does work for Zahn in this volume is a brilliantly unexploited idea within the EU. Seems like everybody is ap...

3.0 Star Wars: Scoundrels
This is my first tie-in novel since I was in high school. All it took was the genius of combining Star Wars with a heist movie.--Seriously though. Is there a more easily watchable movie than Ocean's Eleven (Clooney edition)? I can't imagine coming across that movie on cable and not stopping to watch...
