The Summer 2010 edition of publisher Random House’s catalog has a summary for the upcoming The Old Republic tie-in novel, Fatal Alliance, by author Sean Williams.
Smuggler Jet Nebula has stumbled across a treasure richer than he ever dreamed. The Hutts want to auction it to the highest bidder, be it the Republic or the Empire, both of whom hope to bolster their chances in the coming conflict. But the Sith are interested, too, and they don’t bargain with anyone; the Jedi High Council is sending someone to investigate; a mysterious Mandalorian is chasing something connected to a long-forgotten crime; while a spy plays every side at once. What Jet has unearthed will surprise all of them, and leave none of them unchanged.
Star Wars: The Old Republic: Fatal Alliance is due out July 27, 2010 as a hardcover.
