From the Back Cover
It is a time of crisis. Han Solo, frozen in carbonite, is being taken to the vile gangster Jabba the Hutt. As Princess Leia mounts a rescue mission and Darth Vader scours the galaxy for Luke Skywalker, another sinister figure emerges. His name is Xizor. Cunning and ruthless, leader of the powerful Black Sun criminal organisation, he will pit himself against Vader for the favour of their mutual master...the dreaded Emperor.
Luke, Leia, Chewbacca and Lando Calrissian face betrayal and death at every turn and must use every weapon and resource at their disposal to confront the combined forces of Black Sun and the Empire. And, of course, Vader still lives - and faces a battle of his own - against a villian every bit as evil and powerful as the Dark Lord of the Sith himself.
