The Death Star has been destroyed. But back at the Rebel base, the celebration is over. The Alliance has intercepted a coded transmission, indicating that the Empire is determined to discover which pilot was responsible for the destruction of the Death Star. New security protocol is in effect: The details of the Death Star mission are now top secret, and no one is to know that Luke fired the decisive shot. But that's hardly the Alliance's only problem. Almost all their finances were lost with the destruction of Alderaan -- and they are out of money. Their last hope is to access the secret accounts on Muunilinst, the former home of the InterGalactic Banking Clan, and the financial heart of the galaxy. So Luke, Leia, Han, Chewbacca, and the droids head for Muunilinst. The Empire's top assassin will be waiting for them.

    I read 3 or 4 of this series and now I can't find the rest at my libraries to finish it! I remember loving this series!...

    I'm a sucker for any book set within the original trilogy timespan (Splinter of the Mind's Eye is still a favourite, regardless of its' seeming irrelevance once Return of the Jedi came out). I'm fasci...

    Great read. At last a book series that connects the original Star Wars characters to the prequels. I absolutely loved the beginning where we see Palpatine's reaction to the Death Star being destroyed....

    This was a nice filler book for between episodes IV and V. They kept true to the characters' voices and attitudes in the book. Luke is still naive and at times whiney, Han is still overly sure of hims...

    Three impressions from reading this first book:1) oh my this is gory considering the age group it is intended for and the traditions of Star Wars series for young adults this represents a departure. T...
