Critical Praise for The Black Stiletto series...
"Benson captures the style of a young woman’s diary and moves with ease between time periods…nonstop action. Prime escapism.”—Booklist
"a mashup of the work of Gloria Steinem, Ian Fleming, and Mario Puzo, all under the editorship of Stan Lee."—Library Journal
“Reminiscent of heroes from the Golden Age of comics like the Black Canary and Lady Luck, thrill-seeking Judy makes an endearing protagonist.”—Publishers Weekly
“I can't wait for further revelations about the life of the The Black Stiletto…”—Fresh Fiction
“Raymond Benson’s new series featuring the tales of the Black Stiletto are a load of fun. (The) Black Stiletto: Stars & Stripes, book three, is another great pulp tale of the mysterious heroine which unfolds for the reader as her son reads her diaries. Top notch espionage and action, family drama and a superhero! Benson does a great job of switching time periods and the center of action. This is FUN stuff.”—Crimespree Magazine
It is 1961 in the fourth book of the “Black Stiletto” series. Judy, the Stiletto, meets Leo, a charismatic man who convinces her to move to Los Angeles when she is “run out” of New York by increasingly hazardous police heat.
Soon Judy suspects that Leo is not the white knight she first thought. Leo, who has connections with the West Coast mobs, has plenty of skeletons in his closet. His mysterious sister, Christina, who once served time for armed robbery, could also be a threat to the Stiletto’s new life in California.
Meanwhile, in the present, Alzheimer’s-stricken Judy takes a turn for the worse as Martin comes to grips with the imminent end of his mother’s life. And when elements from the Stiletto’s past once again appear to threaten Martin’s family, it is up to his daughter Gina to step up and take matters into her own hands.
In a novel bristling with mysteries, secrets, and lies, the Black Stiletto saga takes a dark left turn into even more treacherous territory.
