Scoundrels is that rarest of Timothy Zahn Star Wars novels - one that doesn’t mention Thrawn or Mara Jade. Instead, it tells the story of a heist and the team of ne’er-do-wells that Han Solo gets together to pull it off. As usual, Zahn’s characterisations of Han, Chewie and Lando are spot-on.

Nothing, Rachele said, her head almost touching Winter’s as the two of them peered together at Rachele’s computer display. And the pinstripes are probably aftermarket add-ons, Dozer muttered. He was sunk deeply in one of the chairs, staring morosely at the tips of his boots. Han looked around the room. Tavia was peering at another computer display, her face grim

Timothy Zahn is returning to the Star Wars universe - and this time, he's telling a story about just the scoundrels. Star Wars: Scoundrels by Timothy Zahn hits bookstores January 1, but here's an action-packed section you can read early: Star Wars: Scoundrels (Star Wars - Legends). GMG may get a commission.

To make his biggest score, Han’s ready to take even bigger risks. But even he can’t do this job solo.  NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERHan Solo should be basking in his moment of glory. After all, the cocky smuggler and captain of the Millennium Falcon just played a key role in the daring raid that destroyed the Death Star and landed the first serious blow to the Empire in its war against the Rebel Alliance. But after losing the reward his heroics earned him, Han’s got nothing to celebrate. Especially since he’s deep in debt to the ruthless crime lord Jabba the Hutt. There’s a bounty on Han’s head—and if he can’t cough up the credits, he’ll surely pay with his hide. The only thing that can save him is a king’s ransom. Or maybe a gangster’s fortune? That’s what a mysterious stranger is offering in exchange for Han’s less-than-legal help with a riskier-than-usual caper. The payoff will be more than enough for Han to settle up with Jabba—and ensure he never has to haggle with the Hutts again.   All he has to do is infiltrate the ultra-fortified stronghold of a Black Sun crime syndicate underboss and crack the galaxy’s most notoriously impregnable safe. It sounds like a job for miracle workers . . . or madmen. So Han assembles a gallery of rogues who are a little of both—including his indispensable sidekick Chewbacca and the cunning Lando Calrissian. If anyone can dodge, deceive, and defeat heavily armed thugs, killer droids, and Imperial agents alike—and pull off the heist of the century—it’s Solo’s scoundrels. But will their crime really pay, or will it cost them the ultimate price?Praise for Scoundrels   “Rapid-fire adventure [that] adds yet another dimension of enjoyment to a rousing galactic romp.”—Library Journal   “Highly entertaining . . . excellent Star Wars . . . There are many twists and turns [and] Zahn manages to find ways to twist them one step further than you’d expect.”—Examiner.com   “[Scoundrels] brings freshness to the franchise.”—USA Today

I've read most of Mr. Zahn's novels, and this is the first one that clunked for me. I'm not really sure why, but the opening chapters did nothing to draw me into the story and it was a struggle to keep turning the pages, even after I was well past the halfway point. There were certainly the workings of a good story in there, and there were some parts where I started to enjoy things, but then it ended just when I thought it might get really interesting. (I'd forgotten that there was a lengthy novella bundled at the end, so I'd been expecting another act after the heist.) Too many details of the caper were kept secret from the reader, and the book's lengthy setup phase didn't have enough other stuff going on to make up for it, so it ended up being a lot of waiting around for a chaotic assault that seemed like something straight out of a slapstick comedy. I appreciate the effort that went into plotting it all, but I felt like I was just along for the ride without really understanding what was happening, and I've never had that problem with any of the author's other works. I had to reread all of the last two chapters because there were three different characters all claiming to possess the same item, and you have to read between the lines a bit to understand it -- and while I think I figured out who has it, I'm still not quite sure why they have it, or why one of the other characters was searched so inadequately by someone else who was looking for it. Also, there were numerous references to Bespin, so I assumed that something would happen at some point to give an idea of how Lando ended up as its administrator during the brief time between this novel and The Empire Strikes Back, but nothing ever came of it. It seems like this creates a continuity problem because Han knows to find Lando on Bespin during the film, yet the novel ends with them having already gone their separate ways, with a strong implication that Han is going directly to the Alliance with no intention of speaking to Lando again.
Timothy Zahn does it again with another successful and enjoyable Star Wars novel. This one is essentially Ocean's Eleven in space, but there are some good twists (the very end has a cool one) and turns that make it entertaining, but nothing stellar or amazing in it.

*DO read the bonus novella: Winner Lose All at the end of the book before reading the main story; it provides a nice background to three of the new characters introduced in the main story, while also giving a nice narrative for Han/Lando's relationship issues before the main event (things are tense & they have a history for a reason... also leading to Han's reluctant attitude for how Lando's greeting in ESB). A hint is that Lando would have good reason to not receive Han & company warmly as some business venues didn't end well for Lando...

4 out of 5 stars for this one, and it's a shame that this is one of the last Star Wars Expanded Universe books now that Disney has taken over & essentially erased the SW history/EU. This book was just another great edition to the plethora and rich universe created by authors over the years!
I gave up on Star Wars novels a dozen years ago, too many characters, too many authors; it had all gotten too uneven for me. But when I saw this was being released I had to get it. I've always enjoyed Zahn's books. Set right after A New Hope, Han is offered a job by one of Black Sun's victims. The guy wants Han to break in to a Black Sun sector chief's house & steal back millions of stolen credits. Han has lost most of his Death Star reward money & takes the job. But as he isn't a thief he hires some old friends & a few others to help him pull off the heist.

This was a great plot driven story. It was obviously sci fi without beating you over the head with the technology (which gets old) or devolving into convoluted explanation about how everything worked. Zahn treats you as if you are intelligent enough not to need every 'futuristic' element explained to you. The characters were well done; Han, Chewie & Lando behaved true to their movie personas. Nothing to jar the non-expanded universes reader out of their comfort zone but some nice detail on Kell & Winter for expanded universe fans. As others have said it's Star Wars meets Oceans 11. It is a fun adventurous read with plenty of twists & turns plus an excellent twist right at the end that had me going back to the start and rereading the whole book with that knowledge in mind.

Loved it and highly recommend it!
