Not Your Ordinary Batman!

Those of you who like CSI and Robin Cook's Jack Stapleton character, will love this book. Each chapter is a little something different. In some, Batman explains some forensic procedures he follows in some, these procedures are then applied to a specific case, and some chapters are written by Alfred. We have how Batman was asked by Commissioner Gordon to investigate a bunch of young men who suffered sudden death from heart attacks. Batman follows painstaken procedures to deduce that they are related and may have actually been murders. The story leads to the villian, The Scarecrow.

In another instance, Batman discusses what a serial killer profiler does and dissects the techniques used by a profiler who interviews The Joker. Some of the chapters like this one, are fascinating. Others, you really need an appreciation of scientific procedures and a lot of detail to really get into.

Some chapters raise questions as to if it would be possible for Bruce Wayne to obtain some of the equipment and keep it "under the radar" so nobody would suspect that he has it and to what purpose. He talks about buying super expensive things that can magnify things at the molecular level and having the best super computer. How does he maintain it and keep it current? He probably has something like an Oracle data base and other complicated vendor products that require specific knowledge of information technology across many platforms. Many of them require to be regularly patched and serviced.

I appreciate all the information presented and the clever way the author presents it. For me, the book was "ok" but I realize how many people can really like it and thus I give it four stars.
