Publisher's summary[]

STUCK IN A JUNKYARD JAIL AT WAR. IT CAN'T GET WORSE – RIGHT? I mean, unless you add a vengeful FORCE GHOST. And insane MURDERDROIDS. And a BOR BRAIN-LEECH. And a SENTIENT BIOHAZARD…Surely even rogue archaeologist DOCTOR APHRA can't find a way to make things even worse. Wrong. Because her current beau and her ex are just about to meet…[1]

Plot summary[]

Part III
Rogue archaeologist Doctor Aphra's betrayal of
the murderous protocol droid Triple-Zero may
have allowed her to escape its clutches, but
her criminal exploits have landed Aphra in the
Imperial Accresker Jail!

Now, the warden's interrogations threaten to
expose Aphra's deepest secrets, including
what she learned of Darth Vader's plans for the
Empire! Horrified that Vader will come for her,
Aphra has hatched an escape plan — by
revealing the Sith Lord's secret to her current
flame, Magna Tolvan, and blackmailing her into
a rescue operation.

And Vader isn't Aphra's only problem. The
Rebels have hired Sana Starros to capture her!
But the good doctor just can't resist making off
with a little loot — right in the middle of
Tolvan's escape attempt....

  2. The events of Doctor Aphra (2016) 22 includes the decommission of Accresker Jail. Crimson Reign 3 states that Jeremoch Colton had been in the wreckage-prison for over three years when Madelin Sun visited him. The latter issue also states that he was imprisoned after the capture of the Tantive IV, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 0 BBY. Since Accresker Jail is decommissioned prior to the events of Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back, which Galactic Atlas dates to 3 ABY, the events of Doctor Aphra 22 must take place in 3 ABY.
