Ahsoka Tano has no choice but to flee the surface of Coruscant, evading pursuing clone troopers by journeying into the dangerous depths of the city-planet. The long arm of the law extends even to undercity, and time is running out for Ahsoka to prove her innocence.
In the shadowy depths, Ahsoka encounters bounty hunter Asajj Ventress. The former Separatist assassin and Nightsister is amused by the fact that the Jedi are hunting for Padawan Tano -- but she also begins to see that she has much in common with Ahsoka.
Anakin Skywalker is furious that Ahsoka has been branded a murderer. He is determined to prove her innocence, but some in the Jedi Council worry that he is too emotionally turbulent to capture his fallen Padawan.
The Jedi Council dispatches Plo Koon and his loyal clone officer, Wolffe, to search the depths for Ahsoka. Following leads supplied by the local police, Wolffe leads a team of Coruscant Guard clone troopers to bring the fugitive to justice.
