Here is the explosive conclusion of the blockbuster trilogy that chronicles the never-before-told story of the young Han Solo. Set before the Star Wars movie adventures, these books chronicle the coming of age of the galaxy's most famous con man, smuggler, and thief.
The Millennium Falcon is "the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy". So when Han Solo wins it in a game of sabacc, he and Chewbacca become kings of the smugglers: uncatchable, unstoppable. But with the Empire clamping down, Han knows his luck can't last. Still, when an old girlfriend who is now the leader of an insurgent Rebel group offers him a shot at an incredible fortune, Han can't resist. The plan seems a sure thing. The resistance will be light and the take enormous. Han and his friends will divide it equally with the Rebels.
Too bad for Han that the planet Ylesia is far from a pushover, that the Rebels have an agenda of their own, and that smuggler friends can often turn into enemies...quicker than light speed.

"David Pittu ably narrates the third installment of a Han Solo trilogy over a discreet use of sound and music from the films." (AudioFile)
Yes, only if unabridged. Not my favorite narrator.
I would really like my money back. Just awful.
I have read the book and listened to the audiobook. I was disappointed with the abridgement. While the performance was excellent the story lost something from the extra bits taken out. Some of the moments missing were my favorites when I read the book.
This book is a perfect background of Han Solo and the best of the three. It explains his inability to love a woman, as well as his background with Jabba the Hut and Lando. And it brings you right up to...."the old man and the farmer boy in the cantina."
