On the advice of Jabba the Hutt, Tash, Zak, Hoole and DV-9 travel to the ancient spacecity of Nespis VIII, searching for links to the Rebel Alliance. But Nespis VIII is haunted and killers stalk it's decaying corridors.
This story is a ghost story with a clever twist; the ghost isn't the real threat. I really enjoyed this book, not least because it has the main characters exploring Nespis VIII, which featured ever-so-briefly in the 'Dark Empire II' and 'Empire's End' comics (before the Emperor blew it up!), but was never shown in any detail. This book also features the court of Jabba the Hutt and the killer Dannik Jerriko (he's in the cantina scene in 'A New Hope') and both are portrayed well in keeping with the Expanded Universe. I also think that Gog is an excellent new villain, particularly in the way that he is vying for advantage among the Empire's ranks of special agents Also, best of all, there's a certain Dark Lord, who recollects killing a Jedi Knight on Nespis VIII years before.
The only faults with this book are Whitman's ongoing ones; his stupid cliffhangers and the fact no one believes a word Tash says.
Anyway, forgetting the rather suspicious nature of the book for one minute, it was yet again another highly enjoyable read. I was a bit dubious about reading about a Jedi ghost but there was nothing in the story that really conflicted with anything in the movies. John Whitman managed to keep things subtle and open-ended enough to leave something to the imagination.
We see Tash begin to realise her true Force potential and a few more revelations make this book one of the best so far. I know I've said it in every one of these books I've reviewed but I seriously do recommend it! Oh, and look out for the customary cameo!
Oh and stay safe on the Internet. People are not always who they say they are!
