Synopsis:
Anja has been at the Academy a few weeks, and while Luke does not detect the Force in her, she is affecting things all right - she got Zekk and Jacen all over her and Jaina and Tenel jealous. Lando shows up and offers to let the kids try out SkyCenter Galleria, a new amusement park he is building on Cloud City. The kids gladly accept. Anja is coming along as well.
They arrive to startling news: Landoís ex-smuggler partner Cojahn is dead, victim of an apparent suicide. However, Cojahn was anything but suicidal, so the kids offer to investigate, even as Anja sarcastically ridicules their ability to investigate anything. Lando quietly tells the kids that he suspects Anjaís an andris addict - he is seen the signs before. Anja alerts Czethros to the situation, warning him to cover his tracks if he is involved in Cojahnís death. He orders his operatives on Bespin to kill the Jedi.
The investigation does turn up one anomaly - Figrin Dían and the Modal Nodes was to play at SkyCenterís opening, but took off suddenly the day Cojahn died. Lando, Jaina, and Zekk take off for Clakídor VII after them as the others continue poking around. They find the band in a mud hut, hiding out from Black Sun. Hunting down a disgruntled Ugnaught who had gotten fired by Cojahn, the Jedi (minus Anja) are caught in a death trap by Black Sun assassins who throw them out a garbage chute. Lowie and Tenel keep themselves from falling. Jacen does not.
Figrin reveals that Cojahn was killed because Black Sun was trying to infiltrate SkyCenter and profit off it, and Cojahn was trying to expel them. The gang heads back to Bespin. Jacen is saved by a young thranta rider named Míkim, who takes him to a floating island for safety. He learns from him that Czethros personally murdered Cojahn. Jacen is picked up by the Lady Luck and joyously reunited with Tenel and Lowie. Comparing notes, they check Cloud City records - and find them tampered with. A little clean up, and Czethros is revealed. Another ambush occurs, this time with chameleon creatures - and Cloud City guards.
The group uses the SkyCenter itself to catch the turncoats. An alert is sent out, and an arrest warrant put out for Czethros. A purge of Cloud City personnel begins. After enjoying Míkimís official instalment as part of the thranta-riding circus, the gang returns to Yavin. In addition, Anja is at the edge, with her supply of spice cut off and nearly gone.
