Boba Fett: Maze of Deception is the third in a series of young reader novels that chronicle the adventures of a young Boba Fett during the years between Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith.
'Trust no one. Especially a bounty hunter.'
When he died in the first Clone War battle, Jango Fett left a fortune somewhere on the planet of Aargau. The bounty hunter Aurra Sing is the only person who knows where the fortune is. But Jango's son, Boba Fett, is the only person who can get to it.
Aurra Sing needs Boba, and Boba needs Aurra Sing. But there's no way they can trust each other. Every move could be a deception. Every word could be a lie.
As the search for Jango Fett's legacy becomes dangerously complicated, young Boba Fett must outsmart and outmaneuver enemies of all kinds—even hidden ones. His future as a bounty hunter depends on it.
The story begins when Aurra Sing is bringing Boba and Slave I to Aargau. As soon as Boba saw the maze-like structure of the planet, he began to plot his escape, thinking that he could lose Aurra Sing by leaving her somewhere inside. There was an incident at customs in which Sing protested leaving her weapons behind, but the presence of an IG-series Assassin droid intimidated her into compliance. Fett was allowed to remain behind while Aurra Sing was escorted back to the ship to stow her weapons.
While Boba was waiting, he noticed that Sing had forgotten to take the info card that allowed access to the Fett account. As soon as he had the card, he began to walk away, towards the turbolifts that gave access to the lower levels, with somebody following him. Luckily for Boba, it was not Aurra Sing who pursued him, but rather a young clone trooper who had noticed that Fett had dropped his "book" and was returning it to him. However, Sing later arrived at the turbolifts looking for Fett.
Mistaking the clone trooper for Fett, Sing grabbed the young clone, who was known as CT-9779. Boba soon walked away from the scene, and began to search for the bank where his father's money was kept. Before he did anything, he opened the "book" Jango gave him, which told him to "never seek out help." While he was pondering what to do, a supposed Bimm named Nuri approached him. They conversed, and while they were talking, Boba noticed that Aurra Sing was in the same area that he was. Nuri led Boba to the Undercity, where he claimed his father's fortune was. Eventually they arrived at a machine where Nuri attempted to drain all the money from Boba's account. However Boba was able to stop Nuri before he emptied all the funds. Nuri then revealed himself to be a Clawdite, took some of his money and ran off. Boba then learned where to get the rest of his money from and raced off to find it and after outsmarting Aurra Sing, he got the rest of his money and left Aargau in Slave I.
