Synopsis:
A lieutenant to one of the most powerful gangsters in the galaxy, Wyl Tarson is a master of lying, cheating, and stealing -- and a hero of the Rebel Alliance! For years Wyl has been acquiring valuable information for the Rebellion through his employer Raze's expansive criminal network. That is, until Raze discovers Wyl's second life as a Rebel spy. Now, subjected to a mysterious procedure, Wyl has become a prisoner in his own body, subject to Raze's every whim.
On a seemingly unremarkable backwater planet edging ever closer to civil war, Rebel spy Wyl Tarson has an explosive dilemma. He and his newly assembled team of agents-a squad previously deemed by the Alliance to be too deadly, too unpredictable, and too burnt-out to serve-must follow the dangerous and contradictory directions of the criminal overlord, Raze, or face exposure and execution at Imperial hands. If that weren't enough, an incendiary device planted deep within Wyl's skull counts down, ticking off the last moments of his life should he try to make a break. Given the choice between betrayal and treason, Wyl's next move could be his last!
A secret of tremendous importance to the Empire lies hidden on the planet Ahakista, and when a local civil war threatens it, Darth Vader will take its protection into his own hands!
A ragtag team of Rebel agents have discovered the Empire's secret on Ahakista thanks to an Imperial officer with an agenda of her own. Yet if they are to do anything about it, they'll need the help of the locals, who, embroiled in a civil war, are none too eager to take the Empire head on.
Meanwhile, Darth Vader grows tired of this backwater planet distracting him from more pressing matters. For his adversaries this means one thing, death at the hands of the Sith Lord!
The crimelord Raze has put a bomb inside Wyl Tarson's skull, which is why Wyl now leads a ragtag team on a suicide mission to compromise one of the Empire's greatest secrets!
In the streets of the planet Ahakista, Darth Vader wages ruthless war against a local militia that has been unwelcoming to the Imperial presence there. Meanwhile, below the surface, Wyl and his crew try to infiltrate an Imperial stronghold through ancient tunnels. Just when unlikely success seems within their grasp, a revelation by one of the group changes everything.
One of the Empire's most valuable secrets is about to be compromised unless Darth Vader can get to it in time! Deep inside an Imperial stronghold, a team of spies led by Wyl Tarson fight for their lives. Loyal to the Rebel cause, each is willing to make the ultimate sacrifice to complete the mission, none realizing that Tarson marches to the orders of someone far more sinister than the Alliance. For Tarson, this is the moment of truth-will he betray those who trusted him with everything? One thing is certain, once Vader arrives, few will be left alive.
