Detective 816 (April 2006) concludes the Zsasz story that McCarthy and Chiang began last issue.
Batman tries to convince Commissioner Akins that Zsasz is too deadly for the police, and he is needed by them. Akins still has no faith in Batman, and rejects his help – even though a number of cops do get killed by Zsasz.
And Batman has to deal with angry police, as well as the serial killer. Still, the bait worked, drawing Zsasz to the hospital to finish Alfred off, and Batman does take him down.
And the story ends on an up note, as Alfred informs Bruce that he will buy Alfred an expensive Bentley to replace the car he modified.
