Wraith Squadron is a group of Rebels with issues. They haven’t quite fit into other squadrons—or are the last surviving member of their former squadrons. They each have specialized skills for infiltration missions, such as skills at slicing, demolitions, and even acting! They impersonate Imperials and pirates and even fly X-Wings! They’re much less polished than Rogue Squadron, and are always in a lot of trouble. Wedge certainly has his hands full this time around. Their mission: take down rogue Imperial Warlord Zsinj. This book begins a 3-book story-arc within the X-Wing series about Wraith Squadron. It is not technically necessary to have knowledge of books 1-4 in order to enjoy the Wraith series.

Publisher's Summary

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.
