    Summary

    Three days before one Richard John Grayson’s thirteenth birthday, there was an Arkham breakout. This alone was not unusual, as Arkham Asylum was known for neither its security nor its effectiveness at treating mental illness. It was also not unusual that the Joker took the opportunity to crash a charity gala and hold a large number of Gotham City’s elite hostage until the mayor got him a meeting with famed comedian Buddy Standler, as one of the many things the Joker was known for, just below casual murder and chemical attacks, was that he fancied himself something of a humourist. What was unusual, however, was that the young Grayson almost immediately managed to weave himself the kind of excuse his mentor and father figure had been trying to create for years. What’s more, he did so by breaking six out of the seven lessons in Batman’s Guide to Maintaining a Secret Identity.

    Summary

    “You don’t have to do this,” she tells Daniel, but she doesn’t stop him from sliding into the back of the vehicle next to her. “I’m okay to get home on my own.”

    “I know,” Daniel says evenly, his inflection ticking upward to imply that it’s preposterous that he wouldn’t. And then, after a moment— “But you didn’t have to be the fall girl for all of America’s anxieties about gay people twenty years ago, and you did that anyway. And I’m sure almost no one wanted to help you out then. So believe me when I say that this is the least that I can do for you now.”

    Daniel understands what Laura is dealing with more than most. And Laura has to make a decision about Bradley.

    Summary

    The first lesson goes something like this:

    In the beginning, there was cold snow and hot blood and dark wolves snapping at your heels. But Mother came for you, caught you up in her strong soft arms, wrapped you in goosedown quilts and fed you hot soup, spiced tea; lay you gently to bed. Mother took you in when you were lost. There would be nothing without Mother.

    Summary

    “Have you seen it yet?”

    Lena had blindly reached for her phone when it had blared loudly, waking her from a hard earned sleep. The clock on the bedside table blinked out an offensive 3:02 AM, but when she’d cracked her eyes open and seen Andrea Rojas’ grinning face staring back at her, she’d tapped the Answer Video Call button.
