After a prologue in the one-shot Batman – the 10-Cent Adventure, which ended with Bruce and Sasha discovering Vesper Fairchild’s dead body in Wayne Manor, the Bruce Wayne: Murderer storyline starts off in Detective 766 (March 2002), by Greg Rucka, Scott McDaniel, and Jesse Delperdang.
Maggie Sawyer leads the investigation, with Montoya and Allen as the detectives on the case.
Montoya finds it hard to believe that Wayne would be guilty, but all she is really going on is that he bought her flowers as a present from Harvey Dent. Crispus Allen, going by the evidence, is sure he is the killer.
Much of the story takes place in the interrogation rooms, as Montoya works on Sasha, and Allen tries to break Bruce. Of course, no matter what the pressure, the two do not break.
They play the recording of Vesper’s 911 call, which includes the sound of her being shot. The cops treat this as damning evidence, despite no killer being identified in the call.
The story closes on Alfred. For the past few years, he had been serving as Tim Drake’s valet as the boarding school he attends. But with Bruce in so much trouble, it’s time to return home.
The story continues in the next issue of Batgirl.
