Tim helped Batman assemble a team of heroes and misfits to help him keep Gotham safe, then fell in battle defending the city. Or so it seemed. In reality, Tim has been held captive, snatched from the moment of death by the mysterious Mr. Oz. Now he must escape this prison that exists outside of time, but he isnÕt coming back alone. Tim has every reason to trust his fellow prisoner, but when his new ally proves heÕs not afraid to kill, Tim begins to doubt everything he thought he knew! When the duo make their way back to Gotham City, TimÕs escape partner sets a plan in motion to murder one of BatmanÕs allies. Even reunited with Red Robin, can Batman and his team of heroes protect one of their own from a killer who knows them better than they know themselves? Writer James Tynion IV (Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) and artists Eddy Barrows, Alvaro Martinez and Carmen Carnero continue the acclaimed run on Batman: Detective Comics.

The hard-boiled private detective is among the most recognizable characters in popular fiction since the 1920s—a tough product of a violent world, in which police forces are inadequate and people with money can choose private help when facing threatening circumstances. Though a relatively recent arrival, the hard-boiled detective has undergone steady development and assumed diverse forms. This critical study analyzes the character of the hard-boiled detective, from literary antecedents through the early 21st century. It follows change in the novels through three main periods: the Early (roughly 1927–1955), during which the character was defined by such writers as Carroll John Daly, Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler; the Transitional, evident by 1964 in the works of John D. MacDonald and Michael Collins, and continuing to around 1977 via Joseph Hansen, Bill Pronzini and others; and the Modern, since the late 1970s, during which such writers as Loren D. Estleman, Liza Cody, Sara Paretsky, Sue Grafton and many others have expanded the genre and the detective character. Themes such as violence, love and sexuality, friendship, space and place, and work are examined throughout the text.
