Synopsis for "Concrete Jungle"

This story is reprinted from Batman Giant (Volume 2) #4.

Batman is tasked with safely delivering from a hideout a lawyer named Cicero Jenks, who represented mobsters but turned out to be lacking any license to practice law, thus allowing him to spill his clients' secrets. Gordon tells him to bring their informant to the central precinct, but warns him that every gangster will be after Jenks and they've got moles in the police force.

Bruce contacts Dick to help him and abducts Jenks after fooling the cops, placing him in a kevlar bag that is bulletproof and flame-resistant. The thugs listening in to the cops' radio chatter learn Batman has acquired Jenks and attack the Batmobile, but the blast shields allow it to survive. Harley Quinn however suddenly drops a wrecking ball on the Batmobile, but learns Batman escaped along with Jenks while rigging it to blow.

Fending off more thugs, Bruce again comes across Harley but is stunned after being tricked and hit with a boxing glove attached to a spring hidden in her mallet. Harley however falls through a hole cut across the floor by Bruce before she can kill Jenks, and he safely delivers the bag to Sergeant Foley. Foley turns out to be a crooked cop on the mob's payroll but is subdued along with other moles by Nightwing, who was hiding in the bag to fool the mob's underlings.

Gordon finds Jenks hidden in a garbage dumpster and the latter testifies to the authorities against the mob, while Foley is imprisoned.
