Hard Merchandise - Star Wars: The Bounty Hunter Wars, Bk 3 Author:K. W. Jeter Boba Fett fears only one enemy--the one he cannot see.... — Feared and admired, respected and despised, Boba Fett enjoys a dubious reputation as the galaxy's most successful bounty hunter. Yet even a man like Boba Fett can have one too many enemies.... — When Boba Fett stumbles across evidence implicating Prince Xizor in the murder of Luke Sky... more »walker's aunt and uncle, Fett makes himself an enemy even he fears: the unknown mastermind behind a monstrous deception, who will kill to hide his tracks. Fett also finds himself in possession of an amnesiac young woman named Neelah, who may be the key to the mystery--or a decoy leading Fett into a murderous ambush. Fett's last hope is to run through the list of Xizor's hidden enemies. And since Xizor's hidden enemies are almost as legion as Fett's, the chance of survival is slim--even for someone as skilled and relentless as Boba Fett.
Bleh. This was a mediocre ending to a very mediocre trilogy. The writing was insipid, Boba Fett was NOT the main character [even though the story was about him] and Fett was completely 2D whenever the other characters interacted with him. Overall, this was like eating a big bowl of room temperature mushy oatmeal. Close your eyes and don't think about what you're eating/reading and you'll be fine. At least Karen Traviss, in her writings, gives Fett some personality...
A good conclusion to the Bounty Hunter trilogy. It isn't the best of the Star Wars novels, but it's a fun read giving a little more information about Boba Fett and the guilds that govern the actions of the bounty hunters.
