Publisher's summaryEdit

Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker.
Master and apprentice.
Chosen by fate. Destined for conflict.

The planet of Romin is a hotbed of villainy and corruption. It is a refuge for criminals from across the galaxy—including evil scientist Jenna Zan Arbor, an arch-enemy of the Republic.

In order to foil Zan Arbor's insidious plans, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and a team of Jedi must infiltrate Romin—disguised as a band of thieves. Where lawlessness is the law, the Jedi will have to master the art of deception to trap a master deceiver.

Synopsis Edit

Evil scientist Jenna Zan Arbor is hiding on Romin. The ruler of the planet, Roy Teda, shields criminals in exchange for a large sum of money. Obi-Wan and Anakin team up with Siri and Ferus to capture Zan Arbor. The Jedi have taken on the identities of the Slam gang in order to get onto Romin to capture Zan Arbor.

When they arrive on the planet, the are contacted by the leader of the resistence on Romin, Joylin. They agree to help the resistance to overthrow the current government in exchange for Zan Arbor's safety. After the plan falls apart, the Jedi receive a call from the escaped Teda and Zan Arbor to meet them.

After their cover is blown, the Jedi are left to fight the rest of Teda's army until they receive assistance from a Jedi rescue team. After arriving back at the capital, they approach Joylin. Soon after they realize that Joylin was bribed by Zan Arbor and was set free along with Teda. The two criminals escaped the planet with a tracking device placed on their ship by Anakin.
