The Batman Murders - Craig Shaw Gardner

A competent Batman novel. The book is set a few weeks after A Death In The Family. Confused people dressed up as Batmen are set up to be murdered, and Batman investigates.

He is still having a lot of problems because of the death of Jason Todd. When a cult recruiting young people swallows up a police officer sent undercover, Batman asks Nightwing for a hand. Nightwing goes undercover, and encounters a few problems of his own.

The cult leader is a used car salesman recruited by The Joker, who is up to his usual psychotic shenanigans.
