Book I, Part III

Turmoil has engulfed the Galactic Empire. After the destruction of THE DEATH STAR, the disgraced Sith Lord, DARTH VADER, has been demoted by his Master only to have his control be taken by Grand General Tagge. And when Vader discovered that a mole has been leaking information to pirate raiders, it was made clear to him that no person can be trusted.

Unknown to Emperor Palpatine and Tagge, however, Vader is also quietly pursuing his own interests: the mysterious Force-strong pilot who destroyed the Death Star and the identity of the stranger who is conspiring with the Emperor.

But for this he will need his own personal, secret forces….
