Scourge gets a blurb

Yesterday we posted about the blurb for Fate of the Jedi: Apocalypse. Today we have the blurb for Scourge, Jeff Grubb's upcoming Hutt-centric novel.
In the heart of crime-ridden Hutt Space, a Jedi Scholar searches for justice. While trying to obtain the coordinates of a secretive, peril-packed, but potentially beneficial trade route, a novice Jedi is killed—and the motive for his murder remains shrouded in mystery. Now his former Master, Jedi archivist Mander Zuma, wants answers, even as he fights to erase doubts about his own abilities as a Jedi. What Mander gets is immersion into the perilous underworld of the Hutts as he struggles to stay one step ahead in a game of smugglers, killers, and crime lords bent on total control.
I have some thoughts about this, mainly concerns about the "prequelization" of Luke's Jedi Order during this era, but in general I'm really interested in this storyline and glad to see a return to the pre-NJO timeline. (And I can't help but mention my desire to see our favorite smugglers, Karrde and Booster, show up somehow, as well as the Jedi with the most investigation training, Corran Horn. I can dream, right?) Scourge is due for release in paperback and ebook on April 24, 2012.
