Hard-boiled reporter Den Dhur and his buddy, the highly unorthodox droid I-5YQ , have shocking news to bring Jax—about the father he never knew. But when Jax learns that his old Jedi Master has been killed, leaving behind the request that Jax finish a mission critical to the resistance, Jax has no choice but to emerge from hiding—and risk detection by Darth Vader to fulfill his Master's dying wish.

The novel starts with former Jedi Master Even Piell running through the Coruscant underworld , chased by stormtroopers. Piell is cornered in an old abandoned building and is forced to confront the stormtroopers in a violent battle.

He is killed, but the building is then raided by members of the rebel team Whiplash , led by Nick Rostu. The Whiplash members defeat the stormtroopers, and in his dying words, Piell tells Rostu about a droid dubbed "Bug-Eyes" that contains information vital to helping the Whiplash underground in its battle against the Galactic Empire.

Jax Pavan is living in the underbelly of what was once Coruscant , and is now dubbed Imperial Center by rule of Emperor Palpatine's Empire. Jax, in disguise as a regular citizen, acts a freelancer, accomplishing various jobs so he can go on living through the days while he is also secretly working for the Whiplash. I-Five and Den eventually locate Jax, as well as Laranth, and they escape the clutches of a Hutt crime lord named Rokko , while subsequently leading to a double-chase with Imperial forces.

Nevertheless, he allows I-Five and Den to be in his company. However, in reality, Perhi tends to keep his position as Black Sun leader longer than he says he does, and he tells Kaird that if he assassinates Xizor, then Kaird will be allowed to go back to his home world , and Black Sun will never bother him again. Kaird is to track down and kill Xizor on Imperial Center.

Rostu does meet with Jax and tries to lead him into an Imperial trap for Vader to grab him during Jax's mission to locate Bug-Eyes.

Eventually, Jax's mission and Kaird's attempt at assassinating Xizor, which goes horribly awry for the latter, both lead to an abandoned nuclear factory at a far, abandoned side of Imperial Center. There, at the factory, where Bug-Eyes is, and where Xizor is hiding, and also where Rostu has set the trap for Vader to capture Jax, the group is attacked by rogue factory worker droids.

Nevertheless, Jax's company finds Bug-Eyes and retrieves the information for the Whiplash. In the process, Jax gets into a fight with Xizor, where the latter uses Jax's lightsaber , and Jax uses a lightwhip.

At the end of the fight, Xizor flees as the Imperial forces arrive for Jax. Though Jax has figured out that Rostu betrayed him, he lets him go of any punishment or consequence. Jax then tries to lose Vader by dropping his own lightsaber into the factory's nuclear core, which will cause a chain reaction that will lead to the factory's destruction and make Vader believe, at least temporarily, that Jax died in the explosion.

Haninum Tyk Rhinann sees that the failure for Jax's capture will lead to his own demise at Vader's hands, so he departs Vader's service for Jax. In the Star Wars: This novel also contains several erroneous references to Even Piell having more than one eye or retina, or eyelid affected by extremely bright light.
