From the Publisher:

For generations, the people of Gotham City have looked to Wayne Manor as the embodiment of wealth and high society. But when construction crews discover a corpse buried on the grounds, the venerable family estate is embroiled in scandal.

Is someone trying to frame billionaire playboy Bruce Wayne for a shocking and heinous crime? Hardly. Forensic sciencetists determine that the body has been decomposing for at least thirty years, and the likely murderer was Bruce’s father, Dr. Thomas Wayne.

Torn between the need to protect his family’s honor and his obligation to deliver justice, Batman sets out to solve this coldest of cases, using nine mysterious clues (all included throughout this book as removable facsimiles):

*a blood-stained party invitation
*a map of Wayne Manor
*a Gotham City newspaper
*an autopsy report
*private journals, a letter, a photograph, and more

Was Dr. Wayne — the man young Bruce swore to avenge on that bloody night in Gotham City — actually a killer? It’s up to you to sift through the clues and uncover the shocking answer.
