Gotham's never been so scorching, the Joker's never been more despicable, and Batman' s never been in such grave danger. With more than thirty fires raging out of control across the city, Gotham is indeed a hell on earth. But torching the population is small potatoes for the arsonist extraordinaire known as Enfer. The pyromaniac's mad masterpiece is Arkham Asylum, blazing like a Roman candle and engineered to provide the perfect escape for Arkham's most infamous inmate, the Joker. But the dire situation goes from bad to beyond monstrous when the archvillain's path to freedom leads directly to the Dark Knight's cave. The Joker believes in striking while the iron is hot . . . and now it's never been hotter. After all, the diabolical villain has devised the ultimate joke: launch the mother of all crime waves, masquerading as the Caped Crusader himself! With Gotham erupting in flames and its #1 crime fighter fast becoming its #1 enemy, the burning question is: Who's going to get the last laugh?… (more)

I was very impressed with how well the writer portrayed the Joker - less crazy and more manic. ( )
  Jerry.Yoakum | May 21, 2019 |
A book with an interesting concept (The Joker masquerading as Batman and ruining the Caped Crusader's tenuous acceptance as hero by Gotham) ruined by a focus on the author's own original character. So much is spent on Enfer to the detriment of every thing else that it's just insulting that Enfer's storyline ends abruptly, goes nowhere, and is ultimately little more than an annoyance the book would have been markedly better without. Making matters worse, the book is written in the present tense and every chapter is followed by a news article about the events of the previous chapter. These two work together to make the book incredibly boring. As a final insult, the question of how Batman's reputation is restored is never answered. We're just told that it was.

Even if you're desperate for Batman fiction, avoid this one. ( )
