Comment: Story continues in the next issue
Disguised as a member of Black Mask's False Face Society, Batman has to save Lucius Fox from torture, or possibly death. In the mean time, he is unintentionally putting strain on the relationship between James Gordon and his wife to be, Sarah Essen. He is able to rescue Lucius Fox, with unexpected help from Black Mask's former love, Circe, but although the False Face Society's second in command, Tattoo, is captured, Black Mask remains free.
