Star Wars: The High Republic: Trail of Shadows #1

Set during the High Republic, in the years prior to the Star Wars prequels, opens with the death of Jedi Master Loden Greatstorm and the unexplained disintegration of his body. Jedi Investigator Emerick Caphtor is assigned to the case which will lead him to Vrant Tarnum and a mystery that will somehow tie into a children's nursery rhyme and the actions of Coruscant private detective Sian Holt looking out for a friend who has gotten in over his head.

The idea of tying together Star Wars and detective story isn't something I expected. The Emerick and Sian storylines feel very disconnected in the issue which has enough mystery going on without needing to add how the two tales supposedly will fit together. While an interesting idea, I don't know that there's enough here for me to come back and search for any answers.
