Publisher's Summary

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?

    Story
    "Timothy Zahn.. 'nuff said."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Scoundrels: Star Wars to be better than the print version?

    The production values on these Star Wars audiobooks greatly enhance the books and these are in many ways radio dramas rather than audiobooks. The music, the sound effects, everything comes together in a fantastic audio presentation.


    What other book might you compare Scoundrels: Star Wars to and why?

    As far as production is concerned, any other Star Wars audiobook, as for content, Oceans 11.


    Which character – as performed by Marc Thompson – was your favorite?

    I gotta pick one? Marc is so incredibly good and gives nuanced performances for each character. I gotta say though, the first time I heard Lando speak all I could hear was, "It's just me, Billy Dee." So cool


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    1 Uncrackable Vault, 11 Scoundrels. 150 Million Credits. Ready To Win Big?

    Story
    "Scoundrels, One Too Many Twists"

    Scoundrels is a heist story and it never becomes more than a story about a group of individuals planning and executing a heist. The story is well written, but there is no character development and the twist that occured at the end of the book did not seem plausible to me.

    "SOLO'S 11"
    What made the experience of listening to Scoundrels: Star Wars the most enjoyable?

    It was a good yarn on it's own, add Han Solo, Lando, Chewbacca, and a cast of others that you may or may not have encountered before in the Star Wars universe, and you have sci-fi gold!


    What did you like best about this story?

    There isn't really any one thing that I like, it was overall an awesome book.


    What does Marc Thompson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Marc Thompson is an AMAZING narrator, his use of voice and his prose is SPOT on. He should read every Star Wars book.

    "Ocean's 11 meets Star Wars"
    Would you listen to Scoundrels: Star Wars again? Why?

    I would indeed listen to Scoundrels again. It was amazingly written by Timothy Zahn and well voiced by Marc Thompson. The addition of music and sound effects really enhanced the listening experience.


    What other book might you compare Scoundrels: Star Wars to and why?

    I can't specifically think of any other books I'd compare this book to, but I would say it is one of Zahn's best Star Wars novels.


    Which character – as performed by Marc Thompson – was your favorite?

    It is a toss up between Han Solo and Lando Calrissian. He really capture both characters voices and mannerisms very well.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Ocean's 11 Meets Star Wars


    Any additional comments?

    I can not recommend this book to Star Wars fans enough. Even fans of heists in general might enjoy this book.

    Han Solo And Lando teaming up like Reservoir Dogs.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Scoundrels: Star Wars?

    Han running a Big Con!


    What about Marc Thompson’s performance did you like?

    Marc Thompson should redo all the Star Wars Audio Books starting with the New Jedi Order. This time make it unabridged.

    Story
    "Deep-Core Chaos!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definitely! Easily in my top 5 favorite Star Wars audiobooks. It may have been inspired by Ocean's Eleven, but for me, that's where the comparison ends. This is a juicy heist story that balances humor, suspense and loads of action! Top that with the inclusion of familiar characters such as Han, Lando, and Chewie, and the millennium falcon mixed in with previous Zahn characters from "Winner Lose All"; Winter, Bink and Tavia. I won't even get into the unexpected ending!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Scoundrels: Star Wars Legends?

    One of the most memorable moments in the book involves the entire eleven going over strategy on how to break into the bad guy's stronghold. Very creative and interesting dialogue. Another moment involved Bink breaking into a hotel room from the outside of the building while armed guards and a Falleen (the race of Xixor from Steve Perry's Shadow of the Empire) is inside. It is a suspenseful and taut scene written with intricate detail by Zahn. Thompson brings the female Bink to life, and the audience believes that Bink is a master ghost thief.


    What about Marc Thompson’s performance did you like?

    Marc Thompson should be an automatic nominee for best narrator every year, because no other narrator of audiobooks does what he does vocally. Add to that how Thompson, in my opinion is so talented that he can bring to life the male, female, and alien characters with equal aplomb!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Eleven to one odds for one impossible space heist!


    Any additional comments?

    Stop reading and start listening to this book!

    "At last another Star Wars novel from Timothy Zahn"

    I was so happy to see this book. I have be listening and reading Timothy Zahn since "Heir to the Empire"



    I was not disappointed everything you would expect from a cracking Star Wars novel is here. Weather you are a seasoned Star Wars fan or new to it. Please listen as you will not be disappointed.

    "Pow!"

    In short this book is well written, well spoken, but alas I still find one or two quibbles to pick over.



    1-We jump from one plot to the next, before it all comes together in the greater scheme of things. Can be a touch confusing at times.



    2-Han Solo...is Adam West? I keep expecting the rouge to exclaim "Quick Chewie, to the Bat Mobile!"



    Like I said, two tiny quibbles. If you liked Mercy Kill, and if you enjoy a full cast reading of a book with a talented orator solo reading it, get this book.
