Description de l'éditeur
On Coruscant, Xizor meets with Inquisitor Tremayne, trading him the captured Selonian Jedi Zonder for making sure that Vader views a holorecording Xizor wants him to see. Tremayne then interrogates and tortures Zonder, which brings Vader through his cries and the Force.
Vader is given Zonder’s affects (including the recording). He allows Zonder’s situation to be transmitted, which lets Ekria and Drake Lo’gaan view the scene as Vader kills Zonder in combat. Vader then views the recording, which shows Baron Orman Tagge trying to basically take Vader's place of power with the Emperor, which allows Vader to see Tagge as a rival, pitting them against each other, which feeds into Xizor’s own bid for power. Vader has the recording destroyed and offers help to Tremayne in bringing Drake back to him alive. Vader then contacts the troopers Bly and Galle, who were with the Jedi on Felucia during Order 66. They report on the survival of Ekria and Drake, then help track them, even as the two Jedi hunt down Vader, finding him on a landing platform. Drake leaps to the platform and strikes at Vader, but Vader’s Noghri bodyguards subdue him and bring him aboard Vader’s shuttle.
Vader uses lies about the “Jedi coup attempt” on Drake, then takes Drake with him when he visits Orman Tagge at TaggeCo, even as Ekria has followed them and is undercover at the office. Vader Force chokes Tagge for his ambitions, but rather than killing him, he blinds the man. As he does so, Ekria yells out, attacking them. This frees Drake, but Ekria takes many blasts. Drake then duels Vader, only to find himself stabbed and falling to his presumed death. In the aftermath, Vader believes them both to be dead, but Ekria had arranged much of the whole scenario, allowing her to fake her own death and save Drake from falling. They return to Selonia to give Zonder a proper burial, then, knowing they are listed in official records as deceased, Ekria and Drake are Jedi no more.
