Our SYNOPSIS

No Spoilers

The Hutt Gambit continues AC Crispin’s masterful addition to the Star Wars catalogue by bringing Han face to face with some of the most colorful characters in a galaxy far, far away. Within the second novel of Crispin’s trilogy, Han meets a Wookiee named Chewbacca, a gambler named Lando Calrissian, and he begins to work directly with one of the most vile factions imaginable: the Hutts.

However, when the Galactic Empire threatens not only Han’s business dealings, but possible the first home he’s ever known, he has to decide how far he’ll go to protect these new alliances - dare he call them friendships? And, of course, he’s being hunted by the notorious Boba Fett, because it couldn’t be too easy, right?

Publisher's Summary

Possible Spoilers

Here is the second novel in the blockbuster trilogy that reveals the never-before-told story of the young Han Solo. Set before the Star Wars movie adventures, these books chronicle the coming-of-age of the galaxy's most famous con man, smuggler, and thief.

Solo is now a fugitive from the Imperial Navy. But he has made a valuable friend in a former Wookiee slave named Chewbacca, who has sworn Han a life debt. Han will need all the help he can get. For the Ylesian Hutts have dispatched the dreaded bounty hunter Boba Fett to track down the man who already outsmarted them once.

But Han and Chewie find themselves in even bigger trouble when they agree to lend their services to the crime lords Jiliac and Jabba the Hutt. Suddenly the two smugglers are thrust into the middle of a battle between the might of the Empire and the treachery of their outlaw allies - a battle where even victory means death!

The Hutt Gambit is a sequel that stands up to its predecessor, The Paradise Snare, and Crispin picks up the story right where she left off. In this book, you'll find Han in the Imperial Navy, meeting Chewbacca, and being forced to work with the Hutts. Not only do you continue to learn about what makes Solo tick, but you also learn about the intimate features of the Hutt clans' hierarchy in fascinating detail. Everything culminates in a showdown at the Smuggler's Moon of Nar Shadaa that should not be missed!

- Charles Hankel

How do we take The Paradise Snare and fill it with political intrigue, even more amazing smugglers, and an epic space battle? Well that's The Hutt Gambit. The star of this show is still Crispin's wonderful characterization of our favorite Imperial fugitive, but the addition of Chewbacca and Mr. Calrissian himself makes this a must read for...well...anyone!
