Steeped in corruption, enmeshed in bureaucracy, the Galactic Republic is crumbling. And those who suspect Supreme Chancellor Valorum of having a hand in the machinations are baffled - especially when Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn and his apprentice Obi-Wan Kenobi foil an assassination attempt on the Chancellor...

Cloak of Deception follows Chancellor Valorum as he struggles with his destiny and tumble from grace, batlling to hte last against the dark forces who have benefited so greatly from his weakened position.

The novel by James Luceno is lovingly brought to life with the voice of Alexander Adams backed up by a splattering of sound effects and music from the movies.

Star Wars fans who are too lazy to read the novel can spend around six hours listening to what is a wonderfully recorded piece of work.

I treated my nine year old son to snippets of this every night before he went to bed and if nothing else it ensured he was tucked up with no arguments - he even asked to go to bed early on a number of occassions.
