Batman: Smack in the Middle (2)

Clues hidden in the legal documents bring the Dynamic Duo to a hot and trendy discotheque What A Way To Go-Go, as Batman does the Batusi with the Riddler's moll. It's all part of a plan to kidnap Robin, which succeeds, and replace him with a disguised Molly, who will then report the location of the Batcave to The Riddler!
