*Black Mask has made Batman's training scenario, a chilling reality. The various crime families are leaderless... the soldiers running for their lives while trying to grab a piece of the underworld pie for themselves.
Batman and his allies have failed to contain the chaos threatening Gotham City's citizenry. The media have exploited the situation so people think Batman is acting against their best interests. Worse, he has lost the trust and support of Police Commissioner Akins, just when he needs it the most.
Before the day is over, a friend and ally will be dead, familial ties will be broken, and the balance of power in the city will be forever altered. *Source: Back Cover
