Now here we move back into the traditional murder mystery. The story kicks in when Harley Storme is murdered by a clubfooted man with a hook in lieu of a hand. The victim's will is read and that's when the other killings begin in earnest. Can Batman and Robin solve the case?
Pretty good, and the mystery actually plays pretty fair (if simple as there are only so many suspects).
