But in the heart of Gotham's darkness glow the cold garish neon of the sex industry, the feverish eyes of desperate drug addicts, the streetlights creating shadows in which muggers patiently wait. This is where Batman's most personal--and most savage--battle begins. But the fire-zone will shift to thousands of miles and many continents away. In this battle, Batman will be driven into a vortex of violence so profound that those who survive lose their souls. Now the night-rider must reach deep within himself to summon the superhuman strength he needs to fight the most vicious and remorseless enemies he has ever faced ... those who traffic in the flesh of children."--Back cover
