Suffice to nignts, you’ll have to buy it or borrow corjscant and read it to find out what doesn’t get resolved in book one. They do locate the droid and obviously the ending allows for a sequel or two. Some of the action was good, some was just over too quickly. The reasoning for the droid’s murder of Volette was because it was worried that the Caamasi Volette was having an affair with the wealthy woman, and thus, might destroy the marriage between the family.
