Synopses & Reviews
Here is the second novel in the blockbuster new trilogy that reveals the never-before-told story of the young Han Solo. Set before the Star Wars(r) movie adventures, these books chronicle the coming-of-age of the galaxy's most famous con man, smuggler and thief.
Solo is now a fugitive from the Imperial Navy. But he has made a valuable friend in a former Wookiee slave named Chewbacca, who has sworn Han a life debt. Han will need all the help he can get. For the Ylesian Hutts have dispatched the dreaded bounty hunter Boba Fett to track down the man who already outsmarted them once. But Han and Chewie find themselves in even bigger trouble when they agree to lend their services to the crime lords Jiliac and Jabba the Hutt. Suddenly the two smugglers are thrust into the middle of a battle between the might of the Empire and the treachery of their outlaw allies...a battle where even victory means death!
The new "Han Solo Trilogy" is set to take its prominent place alongside the other original "Star Wars" trilogies which are among the most popular and profitable in the franchise. "The Hutt Gambit" unfolds as Han deserts the Imperial Navy and, with Chewbacca at his side, offers his smuggling services to crime lords Jiliac and Jabba the Hutt.
