Shield of Lies is a Legends novel that was written by Michael P. Kube-McDowell. It is the second novel of The Black Fleet Crisis trilogy, and it was published by Bantam Spectra on August 1, 1996. It was followed by Tyrant's Test later that year.
As Leia must deal with a new threat to the fragile alliance that binds the New Republic, Lando becomes a prisoner aboard a runaway spacecraft of unknown origin. Luke continues his quest to learn more about his mother among the Fallanassi, where his every belief about the use of the Force is about to be challenged. And while Leia ponders a diplomatic solution to the aggression of the fierce Yevetha race, Han pilots a spy ship into the heart of Yevethan space and faces a vast fleet of warships under the command of a ruthless leader—a fleet more than a match for the New Republic's forces....
