Traitor is one of my favourite Star Wars books.
It was even worth reading the 12 previous books for, and that is high praise indeed!
Traitor was Elaine Cunningham iirc and she has done some of the best D&D novels. Traitor was above average for the NJO
Troy Denning and Aaron Allston are another couple of D&D/Star Wars crossover authors. Aaron was one of the best author's.
