The second of three related vels starring Jedi Jax Pavan, droid I-5YQ, and journalist Den Dhur during the time directly after the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith . Jax Pavan is one of the few Jedi Knights who survived the slaughter of Order 66. Now he ekes out a living as a private investigator in the bowels of Coruscant, trying to help people in need while avoiding revealing himself as a Jedi to those who are still ready to kill any Jedi who remain alive - and especially Darth Vader.
