The Last of the Jedi: Master of Deception is a Star Wars Legends junior novel written by Jude Watson. It is the ninth, penultimate installment of Star Wars: The Last of the Jedi, and it was first published on February 1, 2008 by Scholastic.
The planet of Alderaan is a peaceful one…and Senator Bail Organa wants to keep it that way. But the presence of the Empire is starting to cast a shadow over their tranquility — as spies and traitors infiltrate the corridors of power.
Alderaan holds a secret — a secret on which the future existence of the Jedi depends. Under strict instructions from the Emperor, double agent Ferus Olin must both uncover this secret and protect it. What he discovers raises dark questions from his own past — and puts him in direct conflict with another former Jedi…the sinister Dark Lord of the Sith, Darth Vader.
Ferus is on Alderaan to investigate possible Force activity from a toddler. When he learns that it's Leia, Bail Organa's daughter, he does what he can to protect her from his fellow Inquisitor, Hydra, as well as Vader. Ferus also begins to recognize the consequences of having a Sith holocron so near.
Amie is on Coruscant still looking up the medical history for Ferus. She steers him towards Mustafar. Meanwhile, Clive still doesn't trust Flame and is investigating her past. Astri helps him.
Bail becomes so irate and nervous due to the Empire that he considers aligning his resistance with Moonstrike...with Flame. But with Vader breathing down his neck and a spy in his midst, he's a man torn.
