Forensic Files of Batman

( 1 )

Overview

Although strong and relentless, Batman has no super powers. Instead he relies on Sherlock Holmes-like abilities of deduction and detection.

Most are written by Batman himself, but two are from Police Commissioner Gordon, and there are a couple of other entries from Batman's right hand man, Alfred the butler.

Forensic Files of Batman features two dozen entries from Batman's Case Files. Most are written by Batman himself, but two are from Police Commissioner Gordon, and there are a couple of other entries from Batman's right hand man, Alfred the butler. Cases range from the puzzling to the bizarre, and feature such classic Batman villains as The Joker, Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and Two-Face. Interspersed among the Case File reports are sidebars that explain the specific kinds of forensic science that Batman uses to solve his cases.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA
The quality of this book is superb. Its only flaw is the stoic group of characters. A little more emotion would have bumped this book up to a 5Q. It tells a very interesting story, although teens may have trouble relating to such impassive characters. A bit of personality would have increased the popularity of this book. VOYA CODES: 4Q 3P J S A/YA (Better than most, marred only by occasional lapses; Will appeal with pushing; Junior High, defined as grades 7 to 9; Senior High, defined as grades 10 to 12; Adult-marketed book recommended for Young Adults). 2004, ibooks, 350p., Ages 12 to Adult.

    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.
