"A Tale of Two Cities"Edit
A bomber destroys the old Murray building, which has stood empty for more than forty years. Batman meets with the GCPD and Sarah Essen to investigate the scene. At first he believes that terrorists are responsible when a second building meets a similar fate, Batman learns that they were both owned by a man named Stewart Grean. Batman tracks Grean down and interrogates him, but it quickly becomes clear that Grean is innocent when news of a third building's destruction hits the news wire at the same time that Batman is interrogating him. Batman drives to the scene and determines that the buildings were destroyed because they obstructed the view of an old art deco skyscraper. The bomber is destroying for the sake of art.
