Search for title: HCL RCL MPL SPPL MnLINK

With the Jedi all but wiped out in the grim aftermath of Order 66, the Empire’s power seems unchecked. But one lone Knight continues to fight the good fight–against all odds and when all else fails.

Second installment in Reaves's Coruscant Nights trilogy. Basically a hard-boiled detective story translated into the Star Wars universe.

Jetpack Dreams: One Man's Up and Down (But Mostly Down) Search for the Greatest Invention That Never Was by Mac Montandon

Fun book - filled with interesting history about the quest for the jetpack. It's yet another book like AJ Jacobs quest stories (The Know It All, The Year of Living Biblically) where an author writes about his obsessive quest to find something - in this case the jetpack/rocketpack.
