I read this book early last year. For anyone who has ever liked reading Sherlock Holmes stories, these are kind of like them, in the sense that they have various stories in one novel book, but a little bit more about the scientific forensic aspect of the investigations, rather than the criminological, psychological, situational, tactical, undercover aspect that you see in so many of the Sherlock Holmes stories.

Most are narrarated by Batman, but I think one by Alfred, and even one by Commissioner Gordon. It actually teaches you about Forensics in there, while also being a fun, enjoyable read.

I read it, and it's very well written.

They got the methods and the information of it down really well in my opinion, as well as a story to follow in each chapter.

I agree, it was.

And yes they did, it was a fun way to learn some of the basics in Forensics, as well as have several entertaining Batman stories to read. And also the fact that there was so many shorter stories (even though there were a few longer ones) made it easier for anyone to read one story at a time, and not have to worry about getting lost by forgetting different parts.

Ok, I managed to borrow a copy of the book since I'm dead broke and couldn't buy a copy. (Yeah things are THAT bad for me. :-( )

First off I gotta say this, I was impressed by it and what it contained. This book is not a graphic novel that supplies illustration to the
events that take place. Rather, this is a novel that provides insight into the thorough steps Batman takes to retain the title of "World's
Greatest Detective." Written as case files, there is a detailed explanation as to how Batman gathers evidence and draws conclusion. Using the latest methods of criminologists and other crime scene investigators, Batman must make a case that will definitively prove that a criminal is guilty. The book also provides a more detailed look at forensic science as a practice today. Even Batman benefits from the advances in knowledge of forensics, ballistics, and other "crime" sciences. If you have an interest in history of unusual subjects, another cool aspect of this book is the introduction to criminology and how it has developed
over the years. What I found that also connects in the book is the effectiveness with which the superhero mythos can seem so tangible, anchored in the mechanics of the real world. Batman seems just like a detective in everyday life,
adamantly combing over a crime scene to catch a killer. It thus serves to bring Batman to life in a whole new way, making fantasy seem to be so real and feasible.

My rating...5 out of 5. It's worth it.

DarkShadow,

I'm really glad you enjoyed it! I thought that the funniest chapter was the one about profiling, and they were talking to the Joker. From what I remember, they made it sound like he had no way of being profiled, although his personality itself was something that could be classified. Probably someone that funny and antagonistic would have at some point worked in as an entertainer, most likely in Improv, and most likely been diagnosed as ADHD.

As far as the other chapters, they did teach a lot about solving murders, which is what a lot of the cases were. I remember in one of them, he was actively looking for a serial killer by observing the patterns and deducing the killer's modus operandi.

And yes, it was good that they did teach about things that contributed to the study of Forensics, in addition to being entertaining as well.
