The intrepid spies, pilots, and sharpshooters of Wraith Squadron are back in an all-new Star Warsadventure, which transpires just after the events of the Fate of the Jedi series!
 
Three decades have passed since Wraith Squadron carried out its last mission. Taking on the most dangerous and daring operations, the rogues and misfits of the elite X-Wing unit became legends of the Rebellion and the Second Galactic Civil War, before breaking up and going their separate ways. Now their singular skills are back in vital demand—for a tailor-made Wraith Squadron mission.
 
A powerful general in the Galactic Alliance Army, once renowned for his valor, is suspected of participating in the infamous Lecersen Conspiracy, which nearly toppled the Alliance back into the merciless hands of the Empire. With orders to expose and apprehend the traitor—and license to do so by any and all means—the Wraiths will become thieves, pirates, impostors, forgers . . . and targets, as they put their guts, their guns, and their riskiest game plan to the test against the most lethal of adversaries.

“A rare entry point for newbies to the Star Wars expanded universe.”—Kirkus Reviews
 
Features a bonus section following the novel that includes a primer on the Star Wars expanded universe, and more than half a dozen excerpts from some of the most popular Star Wars books of the last thirty years!

The Wraith Squadron is back with new members taking down corruption

Mercy Kill is a Star Wars book that involves a group of spies called the Wraith Squadron that plan to bring down a corrupt Galactic Alliance general. 
 
This was a decent Star Wars audio book with the usual well-done audio effects but it doesn't live up to many other Star Wars stories.  The team have an odd assortment of characters of different races and backgrounds but I didn’t feel I got to know many of them well in the story.  I also felt that the end of the story was original but not very satisfying.  That is why I give this book three out of five stars.
