Edmond Hamilton's: Doomstar, in its first (only?) book appearance. It's been decades since I read this - I'll have to quote from the back cover:
The sun shone brightly on this fateful morning, bringing to its planets warmth and life-giving rays. The brightness increases sharply as the morning grew older. The glare was blinding; the radiation not life-giving, but deadly. By mid-afternoon the brilliant, intense sun shone on barren space. It had blasted each of its 4 planets out of existence. Someone had found a way to poison a star. And someone had to be found who could prevent the takeover - or destruction - of the entire universe. Who? Johnny Kettrick, as improbable a hero there never was. Johhny Kettrick who was banned from the Cluster World for his not-too-honest dealings was sent back there with his 3 equally unholy partners to search out the Doomstar - to find it before it burned out another world.
