They are the galaxy's most elite fighting force. And as the battle against the Empire rages, the X-wing fighters risk life and machine to protect the Rebel Alliance. Now they must go on a daring undercover mission--as the crew of an Imperial warship.
It is Wedge Antilles' boldest creation: a covert-action unit of X-wing fighters, its pilots drawn from the dregs of other units, castoffs and rejects given one last chance. But before the new pilots can complete their training, the squadron's base is attacked by former Imperial admiral Trigit, and Wraith Squadron is forced to swing into action--taking over an Imperial warship and impersonating its crew. The mission: to gain vital intelligence about Trigit's secret weapons, to sabotage the admiral's plans, and to lure him into an Alliance trap. But the high-stakes gamble pits Wraith Squadron's ragtag renegades against the Empire's most brilliant master of guile and deception.
Are they up to the challenge?
If not, the penalty is instant death.

You don't need to read the book, this in itself is enough. Go Anthony Heild
What did you do?!
You cut some of the best parts of the book out. Whole important sections just wiped out that make up some of the best commentaries in the book. Why in the world would you do this to such an amazing book? So much potential here wasted.
Way too lean
The voice actor is capable, and the added sound bites are very immersive, but too much is cut out from the actual book. If you've never read it, you'll probably not notice and simply note how quickly some of the story moves along or how you get the feeling you missed something you shouldn't have. Still, it's good for a long drive where you don't have anything to do, and it's at a discounted price by comparison of some audio books (reflecting it's abridged status)
