He's the most feared and successful bounty hunter in the galaxy. He is Boba Fett, and even the most hardened criminals tremble at his name. Now he faces the deadliest challenge of his infamous career--an all-out war against his most dangerous enemies.
As the Rebellion gathers force, Prince Xizor proposes a cunning plan to the Emperor and Darth Vader: smash the power of the Bounty Hunters Guild by turning its members against each other. Only the strongest and most ruthless will survive, and they can be used against the Rebellion. It's a job for the fiercely independent Boba Fett, who jumps at the chance to destroy his rivals. But Fett soon realizes the game is rigged, as he finds himself the target of murderous factions, criminal conspiracies, and the evil at the Empire's dark heart. Boba Fett has always finished first. And in this game, anything less is death.

A Truly Entertaining Ride
This is one of my favorite Star Wars novels. The story started out as interesting and somewhat intriguing to me and then got better and better until I couldn't put it down. When I bought the book I was hoping for lots of action, a story centered on Boba Fett, and some new bounty hunter back story. What I got was all three and then some! I love the way the author delves into the psych of each individual bounty hunter and I really enjoyed some of the scenes inside Slave I.
