The Millennium Falcon is 'the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy'. So when Han Solo wins it in a game of sabacc, he and Chewbacca become kings of the smugglers - uncatchable, unstoppable. But, with the Empire clamping down, Han knows his luck can't last. Still, when an old girlfriend and leader of an insurgent rebel group offers him a shot at an incredible fortune, Han can't resist. The plan seems a sure thing. The resistance will be light and the take enormous. Han and his friends will divide it equally with the rebels. Too bad for Han that the planet of Ylesia is far from a pushover, that the rebels have an agenda of their own, and that the smuggler friends can often turn into enemies... quicker than lightspeed.

This story occurs approximately 3 years before the Battle of Yavin and concludes with the famous meeting with Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker.
This book also references directly to Brian Daley's trilogy, The Han Solo Adventures.
