As the Rebellion gathers force, Prince Xizor proposes a cunning plan to the Emperor and Darth Vader: smash the power of the Bounty Hunters Guild by turning its members against each other. Only the strongest and most ruthless will survive, and they can be used against the Rebellion. It's a job for the fiercely independent Boba Fett, who jumps at the chance to destroy his rivals. But Fett soon realizes the murderous factions, criminal conspiracies, and the evil at the Empire's dark heart. Boba Fett has always finished first. And in this game, anything less is death.

Although I am a big fan of Star Wars, I have not read all the books, comics etc. So there is alot of back story to discover. Boba Fett is one of the best characters. Even delivering a serious appearence in the Legacy of the Force series (which I highly recommend), The Bounty Hunter series is a fantastic addition to my library. Most of the story spread across the New Hope and Return of the Jedi timeline.
The character development, and narration of the book is fantastic.
The book was very short, not even worth one credit in my opinion. It was a single 3 hour recording. Also the story itself was not very good, it read like a comic book interjecting a "big" word here and there awkwardly but mostly just action.
The worst part however was the sound effects and music and how every alien sounded like it had the same sinister voice. At a few points I couldn't even understand what was being said because of some stupid screeching birds or an overly loud imperial march. Not cool.
Lucas, the story exists in the mind of the listener. Whatever you don't provide will be filled in by their own mind and in this way sometimes less detail is more.
