User Review  - Agent Smith - Goodreads

I am a huge Batman fan and I can appreciate what Vachss was trying to do, but it just did not work for me. The story kind of lost its way half way through in my opinion. Read full review

User Review  - Robert - Goodreads

A tale of the Dark Knight confronting an altogether different type of criminal element. No colorful villains here. Vachss offers an interesting element to the backstory of Thomas and Martha Wayne. Read full review
