Specter of the PastBook - 1997
Specter of the Past is the first of a new series, The Hand of Thrawn. Princess Leia is trying desperately to hold the loose coalition of interests known as the New Republic together long enough to see the evil Empire finally vanquished. But in a stunning setback, Han Solo and Luke Skywalker discover that the pirate ships raiding New Republic transports are staffed with clones under the command of someone who claims to be Grand Admiral Thrawn, the Empire's most powerful warlord, believed dead for 10 years. Thrawn's plan for destroying the fragile New Republic seems well on the way to completion—unless Han, Leia, and Luke can stop it.
The Empire is tottering on the brink of collapse and the New Republic's coalition is riven by age-old animosities. As Princess Leia and Han Solo struggle to hold the New Republic together, Luke Skywalker pursues a mysterious group of pirate ships whose crews consist of clones. All the while, lurking in the shadows is the enigmatic Major Tierce, a disciple of the Emperor Palpatine, armed with his own dark plans for the New Republic and the Empire.
