Simple answer is maybe. He is a good detective I mean he learned from the greatest. But is he the second greatest?
Dick Grayson Aka The 2nd Greatest Detective?
I want to preface what I'm about to say by mentioning that I am a huge Dick Grayson fan. That means I'd love to agree and say he is. Sadly, I think the books are pretty adamant on the fact that Tim is actually the one who rivals Bruce. Somewhere I read that Ra's al Ghul has only bestowed the title of "detective" on Bruce Wayne and Tim Drake.
@vernierhawk001: Although I do believe in the latter issues of Nightwing(right before cancellation) Ra's Al Ghul bestows upon Dick the sword he used to duel Batman, and accepts him as a replacement, I think in part b/c he was never able to route Batman himself. He even calls him by Detective if I remember correctly.
