Summary

Feared and admired, respected and despised, Boba Fett enjoys a dubious reputation as the galaxy's most successful bounty hunter. Yet even a man like Boba Fett can have one too many enemies.

When Boba Fett stumbles across evidence implicating Prince Xizor in the murder of Luke Skywalker's aunt and uncle, Fett makes himself an enemy even he fears: the unknown mastermind behind a monstrous deception, who will kill to hide his tracks. Fett also finds himself in possession of an amnesiac young woman named Neelah, who may be the key to the mystery, or a decoy leading Fett into a murderous ambush. Fett's last hope is to run through the list of Xizor's hidden enemies. And since Xizor's hidden enemies are almost as legion as Fett's, the chance of survival is slim - even for someone as skilled and relentless as Boba Fett.

Critic reviews

"Anthony Heald is a superb performer for the various Star Wars audiobooks. He slides in and out of distinctive Star Wars characters with such smoothness that the characters are instantly recognizable, as if the original actors were working in ensemble." ( AudioFile)

Great ending to Fett saga?

This is a great ending to this series in the star wars cannon, but as my title suggests, is it really? You will have to listen to the rest of the books in the legends cannon to find out.

Read the paperback then listen to the movie.

As a confirmed EU fan I was devastated by its destruction. So rather than hating these abridged stories, I’ve come to think of them as audio movies. I buy a favourite now again when I get a coupon (and if you watch out they pop quite a bit). Love this audio trilogy.

bounty hunter

Now that is an interesting ending for this trilogy. It is a good story that takes place during the original trilogy star wars.
It give the listener a good side story during a new hope and return of the Jedi.
read or listen to it and give your thoughts on it.
A disappointment that its not Mera Jade story it would fit perfectly in that time line.

Abridged

I really love this book and the story telling was well done. However, the entire time I kept thinking to myself - where are all the good scenes I remember - the ones that made me love 4-LOM, Zuckuss, and Boba Fett? It was not until the end that I realized it was abridged. I hope these books get a full retelling on audible.

Boba Fett the PI

Continue the search for answers, with a little more action then book 2 but storyline fads in the compelling reader to want more. I was hlad the series ended.
Next please

Fantastic Boba Fett back story

I know it's all not Canon now, but wow, it fills in a lot of pieces. Never find of abridged stories, buy out together in a non linear time sequence very well.
