The Nightwalkers are terrorizing Gotham City, and Bruce Wayne is next on their list.
One by one, the city's elites are being executed as their mansions' security systems turn against them, trapping them like prey. Meanwhile, Bruce is turning eighteen and about to inherit his family's fortune, not to mention the keys to Wayne Enterprises and all the tech gadgetry his heart could ever desire. But after a run-in with the police, he's forced to do community service at Arkham Asylum, the infamous prison that holds the city's most brutal criminals.
Madeleine Wallace is a brilliant killer . . . and Bruce's only hope.
In Arkham, Bruce meets Madeleine, a brilliant girl with ties to the Nightwalkers. What is she hiding? And why will she speak only to Bruce? Madeleine is the mystery Bruce must unravel. But is he getting her to divulge her secrets, or is he feeding her the information she needs to bring Gotham City to its knees? Bruce will walk the dark line between trust and betrayal as the Nightwalkers circle closer. @goodreads
Yes!!! I loved it!
This is about Bruce who is about to turn 18. He's going to be rich. He has his team that are building things. He takes martial arts. He has Alfred. He has friends. And he's starting to have a purpose in life.
When Bruce helps out the police stopping one of the villains in the Nightwalkers gang, well he has to do community service for helping by crashing his car and what not. A simple thank you would suffice!
He ends up cleaning floors at Arkham Asylum. This is where he meets Madeline who is actually with the Nightwalkers prior to Bruce's fiasco. But things are not all they seen with Madeline. They have a sort of friendship.
"You have a heavy heart, for someone with everything."
Bruce could only look on. How did she know that? Had she heard it in his tone, his words? "What do you mean by that?" he asked her, but she was no longer paying attention to him. Her chest rose and fell evenly, as if she had decided to go to sleep.
Bruce is still trying to find out information about the Nightwalkers.
Gotham City--Blame the virus, not the fever. You are not under attack from the Nightwalkers. You are under attack from your own rich, and their corrupt system of blood money. Now they will bathe in blood. Do not try to stop us. Death to tyranny
I would actually like to see a second book but I don't think they are doing one.
Anyway, Happy Reading!
