"A Death in the Family, Book Two, Chapters 3 & 4"Edit

On the trail of Shiva Woosan, Bruce and Jason learn the mercenary was kidnapped moments before their arrival. Soon afterward, Batman and Robin shake down a number of Lebanese criminals and learn that Woosan was taken to the Pashar Pass in the Bekaa Valley.

In a famine relief camp just outside of Magdala, Ethiopia, the Joker blackmails Dr. Sheila Heywood for shipments of medical supplies. Meanwhile, Batman and Robin infiltrate a terrorist camp only to learn Shiva Woosan is none other than Lady Shiva. Lady Shiva battles Batman and is defeated. As Robin cuffs the renegade martial artist, Batman sabotages the terrorists' explosive cache. After trekking through the desert for a while, Batman interrogates Lady Shiva and learns she never had any children. The dynamic duo depart for Ethiopia.

Bruce and Jason arrive at the camp outside of Magdala and meet Dr. Sheila Heywood where mother and son are reunited. Soon, the Joker arrives and he takes Heywood to the central warehouse to steal the medical supplies. Jason follows on a stolen motorcycle. As supplies are unloaded, the Joker has boxes of his lethal laughing gas loaded in their place. Jason returns to the camp to enlist Bruce's aid and soon the Dark Knight chases the trucks carrying the gas in a mini-copter.

Meanwhile, Jason returns to the warehouse and reveals his identity as Robin. Entering the warehouse, Heywood turns Robin over to the Joker, who had never left. The Joker and his gang proceed to beat Robin so savagely, Heywood can no longer bear to watch.

After his mini-copter is shot down by soldiers, Batman is recognized by the truck drivers and is allowed use of a truck. Meanwhile, the Joker betrays Heywood and has her bound in the warehouse next to her injured son where he's placed a bomb. Unable to deactivate the bomb, Jason instead unties his mother. Attempting to escape, Heywood discovers that the door is locked and the bomb detonates, killing her and her son.
