Did 'Lady Firefly' Miss Her Cue in Detective Comics #988?

Batman is on the case. Being a detective in Detective Comics #988 today. I know, who'd have thought?? So, tracking down a murdered individual, finding his secrets to discover who murdered him…

…only to be interrupted in his endeavours by… who?

Did someone miss their cue? Was someone meant to have said 'Lady Firefly' in order to justify Batman's questioning response? It's not as if she is a silent assailant…

Maybe the words were lost on the reader over the flames. Maybe Batman was momentarily joined by Martian Manhunter's telepathy? Maybe it was lost in the lettering?

What we need is a detective to work it out for us.
