In this third DC Icons book, following Leigh Bardugo’s Wonder Woman: Warbringer and Marie Lu’s Batman: Nightwalker, Selina is playing a desperate game of cat and mouse, forming unexpected friendships and entangling herself with Batwing by night and her devilishly handsome neighbor Luke Fox by day. But with a dangerous threat from the past on her tail, will she be able to pull off the heist that’s closest to her heart?
