Plot summaryEdit

Book II, Part II
SHADOWS AND SECRETS
Chaos disrupts the galaxy. After the
destruction of the Death Star by a
mysterious Force-strong rebel pilot, the
Sith Lord DARTH VADER was deemed
responsible by his master, Emperor
Palpatine. Now pursuing his own agenda,
Vader enlisted the assistance of
the bounty hunter BOBA FETT and
archaeologist DOCTOR APHRA.

In an attempt to find the boy who
destroyed the Death Star, Vader returned
to the desert planet of Tatooine only to
find an empty husk of a hut, scorched with
blaster marks where the boy battled the
infamous bounty hunter.

Elsewhere on the Outer Rim planet
Son-Tuul, a gathering of bounty hunters
and mercenaries are greeted by Aphra,
who offers them the chance to steal the
sum of a lifetime from an Imperial ship....[3]
