A pioneer in the field of criminal xenoarchaeology, Dr. Chelli Lona Aphra recognizes no law, has no fear, and possesses no impulse control. After her latest plan goes horribly wrong, her roguish ways are on the verge of catching up to her. That's when Darth Vader, terror of the galaxy, swoops in with his lightsaber and... saves her life? Aphra may have just become a pawn in a deadly game being played by Vader and his boss, who happens to be the Galactic Emperor. And yes, the life expectancy of anyone who disappoints Vader can be measured in seconds. But she's got a ship to fly, a heist to pull-- and just might find a way to get the job done and avoid the deadly performance review that waits at its conclusion. -- adapted from jacket.
