Summary: A new Mafia kingpin. A vigilante in exile. A commissioner without allies. Half a year undercover, deep in the heart of the criminal underworld. Half a year to redeem Batman, salvage a broken partnership, and- maybe- save Gotham.

Save to leave and enter the house, Jim Gordon hadn't set foot on his porch in seventeen days. Barbara even took out the trash now, while Jim cajoled the kids into eating their vegetables, washing up for the night and tucking them into bed next to each other in Jim and Barbara's king. Jimmy and Babs hadn't slept in their own rooms for nearly three months. Despite all the counselling they had been through, Jim feared that somehow his children weren't yet out of shock. Their house was a quiet place, too full of silences.

Cop cars still circled the block every half hour after dark. The constant presence of an officer parked across the street from Jim Gordon's house had become part of life in the neighbourhood.

The situation had just become intolerable.
