Book Description

1 Jan 2013 Star Wars
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?

2.0 out of 5 stars Oceans Eleven in Space. 24 April 2014
Scoundrels is in my opinion the Worst SW book in a long time and considering that Zahn is one of the key creators of the EU just makes it worse.The story is essentially a crime caper and the only key SW stalwarts are Han,Chewie and Lando all though none of them really do anything or stand out in this tale.One of the biggest issues with this book is we know from the outset that the heroes are in no danger and are so poorly fleshed they could easily be switched out for other characters.By the end of the book nothing much has been achieved and my time spent reading it felt wasted.
There is no need to read this book as it adds nothing to the greater story and adds nothing to the history of its main players.

So much fun reading this, although I wish the Falcon had been in it more. Like all the new characters, and that they were given depth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Scoundrels 22 Dec 2013
By Wredd13
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a good read. Its not exactly deep, but it is a fun experience. There are some things I really liked and appreciated as a Star Wars fan, like showing the Ord Mantell encounter Han has with the bounty hunter quoted in TESB. And a good few other things, like Winter being a character and really getting inside her head following Alderaan's destruction in ANH. The book also deals with Lando and Han's distrust and falling out they had with each other, and how its repaired. Oh, and theres a twist at the end of the book which I don't think anyone will see coming... I know I didn't.

I'd probably give this book a 7/10.
