Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the tradition of Quirk's The Crimes of Dr. Watson, this interactive mystery pits a legendary detective — Batman — against a shocking and seemingly inexplicable crime.

When a construction crew at Wayne Manor discovers a long-buried corpse, all the evidence points to Bruce Wayne's late father, Thomas, as the murderer. Torn between the need to protect his father's honor and his thirst for dispensing justice, Batman sets out to solve this coldest of cases, using police reports, his father's private journal, maps of Wayne Manor, news clippings, forensic samples, and photographs from family albums (all included throughout the book as removable facsimiles).

Was Dr. Wayne — whom 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 solve this thrilling whodunit. When you've identified the culprit, you can open the final signature of the book (sealed at the printer) to read the remainder of the story.

Complete with eye-popping illustrations and first-rate production values, Batman: Murder at Wayne Manor will appeal to mystery buffs of all ages.

Review:

"As a story, it's not bad — this is a book fit for a teen showing interest in crime noir or comic books....Overall, from the perspective of production, it has a very polished, high quality look." Newsarama

Review:

"I have to say, I really am enjoying this concept of the interactive mystery, and I hope Quirk Books keeps 'em coming." Comics Nexus

Review:

"On its own, Murder at Wayne Manor is an interesting mystery which suffers a little from having too few suspects....[T]he combination of Swierczynski's writing, Lapham's illustrations, and the feelies justify the book's purchase..." Game Couch

Synopsis:

This interactive mystery pits a legendary detective--Batman--against a shocking and seemingly inexplicable crime. It's up to the reader to sift through the clues and solve this thrilling whodunit.

Synopsis:

Murder at the Mansion. Can you solve the crime?

 

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 scientists 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.
