When conflict threatens to erupt somewhere in the galaxy, Jedi Knights are dispatched to mediate, uphold righteousness, and defend the weak. But if the potential conflict threatens to explode into full-scale galactic war, the Jedi Masters themselves must be on hand. Unfortunately, a web of deceit on a grand scale awaits Ki-Adi-Mundi, his new apprentice A'Sharad Hett, and the rest of the Jedi Council on the high-speed Podracing tracks of Malastare!
Half of the Jedi Council has been sent to the world of Malastare-one of the last worlds to hold Podraces-to negotiate a peace treaty between two warring factions. But the whole affair is being manipulated by a secret, third party, out to assassinate the Jedi!
As the world of Malastare begins to thrum to the rocket thrusts of the galaxy's greatest Podracers, the Jedi Council members are threatened from all sides! Lannik Terrorists, Ffib priests, and half of the galaxy's most nefarious crime lords are here, and justice is the last thing on their minds! And in the hard-bitten world of Podracing, they've never stopped a race just because a few sentients have tumbled onto the track-even if those unfortunate beings are Jedi Knights!
As Lannik terrorists and Ffib priests prepare to wipe out half of the Jedi Council, the Jedi must ask themselves: is there any hope for peace, or was this a ruse all along? The answer lies somewhere among the rocky flats and methane pools of Malastare, but so does death, and for one of the team, life will never be the same again!
After encountering monstrous akk dogs under the command of the Red Iaro Terrorists, Mace Windu and his former Padawan Depa Billaba go in search of a smuggling ring that's transporting the animals from Mace's homeworld and turning them into savage pitfighting beasts. But the corridors and depths of the Smuggler's Moon are havens of scum and villainy--no place for Jedi!
Jedi Masters Mace Windu and Depa Billaba stumble across a savage pitfighting ring in the depths of the Smugglers Moon. But the ringmasters are very determined to keep their audience happy, and what could be more exciting than rancors and vicious akk dogs against the galaxy's strongest Jedi?

This story occurs approximately 31 years before the Battle of Yavin.

Review by J. L. Polacek, USA, 2012:
"A thrilling adventure story, worthy of the title of "Star Wars". Really paints an accurate picture of decaying Republic dying of corruption but with a little change."
