This graphic contains Detective Comics #827-834 and follows the "Batman: Detective" graphic, also by Dini. The artwork is good, and it contains 4 standalones and 2 two-part storylines. Dini has continued his trend of incorporating old villains turned good, and putting interesting twists on previous villains.
In "Double Talk" Batman discovers Scarface is back from the dead (see "Face to Face" for details on Scarface's "death") and Scarface's new Ventriloquist. To Penguin's dismay, this discovery takes place in the newly revamped Iceburg Lounge.
"Shark Bite" involves Riddler, teaming up with Batman in his new role as detective to find out who killed an old friend of Bruce Wayne, and why.
The two-part "Siege" storyline makes buying this worthwhile by itself. Recent fans of Batman probably know that for a while, Bruce was become rather psycotic and utterly consumed by Batman, to the point of letting his relationships with his family suffer badly. More recent fans will know that Bruce lately adopted Tim Drake (see "Face to Face" for this storyline). "Siege" begins with Bruce attempting to broker a truce between the bickering heads of states of two unfriendly nations. Unfortunately, a suicide bomber decides to blow up Wayne Towers, leaving it up to Tim and Bruce to save the day, the heads of state, and themselves as well.
"Kind of Like Family" stars Harleen Quinzel, better known as Harlequin. She's doing her best to get parole through her good behavior when she's kidnapped from Arkham (yes, really) and drafted by the new Scarface to help him carry out a robbery. This one did a good job of showing how Harley has changed, and showing her as a person rather than Joker's giggling henchwench.
"Triage" was a fun detective story, with Batman using his sleuthing skills to hunt down the mysterious person apparently intent on killing off the Terrible Trio. The real twist was in who the would-be killer is.
"Trust" was perhaps my favorite of the lot. The two-parter has a magician whose assistant died during a stunt. Batman's investigations turn up a pattern of deaths or mutilations in the magician's latest shows, and so he calls in Zatanna. It's probably a good idea to read "Identity Crisis" before reading this, although you can follow along fairly well without it. Over the course of their investigation, Batman and Zatanna must face the lack of trust in their relationship, and decide if their friendship can withstand the harm Zatanna did to Batman.
Overall, good artwork, excellent stories, and a nice addition to anyone's Batman collection.
