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. Deep in the bowels of Coruscant, Jedi Jax Pavan ekes out a living as a private investigator, a go-to, can-do guy for the downtrodden. Now a mysterious Zeltron knockout named Deejah approaches Jax with a case that needs to be cracked: to find out who killed her artist lover Volette, brutally murdered hours after his triumphant unveiling of a dazzling new light sculpture with obvious links to lightsaber pyrotechnics. Finding Volette`s killer won`t be easy-too many secrets, too many suspects, and all kinds of motives. But with the droid I-5YQ`s help, and ex-reporter Den Dhur`s excellent snooping skills, the investigation is soon operating like a well-oiled machine. Unfortunately, there`s a far more efficient machine hunting Jax. It`s a deadly game of cat-and-mouse as the clock starts ticking toward the final explosive showdown . . . to see who strikes first and who will die first.
