Summary

They don't know who he really is. They never know where he'll show up. But the citizens of Gotham City know they have a protector. He's the Caped Crusader with an arsenal of amazing weaponry and a repertoire of incredible acrobatics. He's the legend they call Batman. In the toxic brew of big-city corruption, a bone-white, green-haired, eternally grinning thing is born. His name is The Joker. His lust is for all the wealth, power, and revenge he can grab from the world. And in the timeless, violent war between criminal and crimefighter, Batman vs. The Joker will be the ultimate duel.

Murder in Manhattan

Summary

Beginning in 1982, The Adam's Round Table, a group of America's most talented and successful mystery writers, convened every month in New York to discuss their craft. When author/agent Bill Adler suggested they each write a short story located in a different section of Manhattan, their enthusiastic response was Murder in Manhattan, a collection of short stories featuring a suspenseful cast of characters and plots set in the world's greatest city. Stories in this collection include: "Lucky Day" by Mary Higgins Clark, performed by Betsy Palmer. A young bride suspects her husband's complicity in a mysterious disappearance. "Vaudeville" by Whitley Strieber, performed by Roddy McDowell. An aging vaudeville comedienne dies, but not laughing. "Till Death Do Us Part" by Dorothy Salisbury Davis, performed by Juliet Mills. A high-powered literary agent's sword is mightier than her pen. "Directed Verdict" by Thomas Chastain, performed by Peter Graves. A veteran homicide cop unravels a complicated web of deception.
