The deaths of Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine failed to spell the end of the Empire. The New Republic has faced a constant struggle to survive, and now a new threat looms: A masterpiece of Alderaanian art, lost in transit after the planet's destruction has resurfaced on the black market. Offered at auction it will command a high price, but its greatest value lies in the secret it conceals - the key to a code used to communicate with undercover New Republic agents. Discovery of the key would spell certain disaster and the only option is recovery. Han, Leia, Chewbacca and C-3P0 are dispatched to Tatooine to do just that...

Set after the events of Return of the Jedi, Tatooine Ghost has an almost film like quality to its narrative.

Troy Denning brings back all your favourite original Star Wars elements that make for an authentic Star Wars universe setting - including TIE fighters, stormtroopers, Tusken Raiders and an Imperial Star Destroyer and weaves an intriguing story worthy of George Lucas' vision.

What a shame that Lucas has stated he no longer intends to make Star Wars: VII - XI, as with a bit of tweaking this would work well as a movie.

If you are not a huge Star Wars fan, then obviously this will not appeal. However, if you loved the original movies and feel cheated by the new ones, then this book will make you realise what it was that first sucked you into the Star Wars universe.

An intriguing and worthy addition to the stable.
