''Death, Lies, and Treachery'' is a 3-part miniseries from the Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse that was collected in TPB in 1998. Like ''ComicBook/DarkEmpire'' before it, it featured art and (very stylized) coloring by Cam Kennedy. Unlike ''Dark Empire'', however, this new series opted not to focus on Luke, Han or Leia, and instead placed bounty hunter Boba Fett (whose grisly death-by-sarlaac-ingestion had been undone, courtesy of the previous miniseries) in the starring role.

Along with ''ComicBook/EnemyOfTheEmpire'', it's one of the few stories that focuses on Fett prior to both [[AttackOfTheClones his being revealed as a clone]] and his being confirmed as an actual Mandalorian as opposed to someone who might just be wearing the armor. However, it also holds the further distinction of being one of the few Star Wars stories that makes absolutely no mention of the Force.
