Lee Child, New York Times best-selling author of Worth Dying For, offered his advance praise of The Black Stiletto and its inventive and engaging storyline: “Irresistible: Suppose you found out—just too late—that your mother had been a superhero crime-fighter. What would you do? Sit back, take a deep breath, and let Raymond Benson tell you.”
“My mother was the masked vigilante known as the Black Stiletto.”
Was Martin Talbot’s elderly, Alzheimer’s-stricken mother really the Black Stiletto? When he discovers several hidden volumes of her diaries, he is stunned beyond all imagination. In them, Judy Talbot claims to be the renowned underground heroine who operated in late 1950s New York City, battled Communist spies, took on the Mafia, and stalked common crooks.
In a fascinating story that alternates between past and present, the Black Stiletto’s legend unfolds. What caused her to begin her quest for justice? Why did she decide to act outside the law? What are the facts behind her feats as the infamous and feared crime-fighter?
As Talbot struggles with shocking revelations, the reappearance of one of the Stiletto’s old enemies with a thirst for merciless revenge threatens to jeopardize his mother’s closely-guarded secret—and her life.
According to Jeffery Deaver, New York Times best-selling author of Edge, “A thriller that brilliantly succeeds…Filled with cutting-edge suspense, wry humor and heart-wrenching warmth, not to mention great period detail, The Black Stiletto will grab you instantly and simply not let go until the final page—no, make that the final sentence.”
Sandra Brown, New York Times best-selling author of Lethal adds, “Benson has created one of the most original heroines I’ve read in a long time. Adventure and suspense made this book a rollicking good read. But the story is about much more than simply the evolution and escapades of the Black Stiletto. It’s about relationships and just how well we know—or not —even the people we love most."
Raymond Benson is the highly acclaimed author of numerous works, including several original James Bond 007 novels (recently collected in the anthologies, The Union Trilogy and Choice of Weapons). He is a New York Times best-selling author (writing as "David Michaels"); an Edgar Allan Poe Award nominee; a Shamus Award nominee; and is the recipient of numerous other awards.
