I have come to not expect much out of novels based on comic book characters, but this may be the exception to the rule. The author deftly displays both the dark detective's physical prowess with his superior intelligence and intuition. While it is not a complete novel, and is instead broken up into "cases" (read short fiction), the author introduces us to the many aspects of forensic science through Batman's eyes. Mixed in with the four page chapters where Batman/Bruce Wayne explains things like GSR, rigor mortis, and entomology, are some well written action pieces in which the Bat gets to show us his knowledge of criminology while putting the boots to some of his most dangerous enemies. Perfect read for fans of Batman and the hit TV show, CSI.
