This book in the Star Wars series takes place between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back.
Eight months after the Battle of Yavin, the Rebellion is in desperate need of a new base when the Governor of Candoras Sector offers the perfect base and an alliance in return for protection from a Warlord trying to take over that end of the Galaxy. But is it a trap, and why is Mara Jade there with the five renegade storm troopers of the Hand of Judgement? So Leia, Luke, Han, and Chewie are sent to find out. The game of betrayal is afoot.
Timothy Zahn is arguably one of the best of the Star Wars pens (not to mention his own work). So if you collect Star Wars literature, time to get the card out at your local bookstore. Enjoy. ~~ Pam Allan
