Could Martin Talbot's elderly, Alzheimer-stricken mother, Judy, really have been the Black Stiletto? When Martin discovers several volumes of her diaries hidden by his mother, he is stunned beyond all imagination. His mother, the underground heroine of yesteryear? The famed, still unidentified woman who battled Communist spies, took on the Mafia, and preyed on common crooks? The woman who exacted punishment on evildoers without mercy?

But it is all described, in great detail, in the diaries. What caused her to begin her quest for justice. Her decision to act outside the law. Her feats as the famed and feared vigilante. How her reputation exploded. In short, how it all played out.

Could it be true? Talbot is filled with doubt and disbelief. But the reappearance of one of the Stiletto's old enemies with a thirst for merciless revenge makes the story more than real, and could imperil the life of not only the Stiletto, but her son and granddaughter as well.

    " Very Good; could be a new series about a 1950s woman who decides to take crime-fighting into her own hands and settle some scores; story is interspersed with current time when her son has discovered the diaries of his Alzheimer's suffering mother and realizes she was the Black Stiletto "

    " What a great story, highly recommend "

    " While the premise of the book was interesting and the writing was very good, super heroes and mythical spies are not my genre. A woman, who has Alzheimers and is put in a nursing home, leaves a series of letters and diaries for her son. Reading these he finds out she was the Black Stiletto and a player in many of the politics and captures of mob figures during the fifties and sixties. Characters were interesting and well drawn, book mostly in diary form. Enjoyed it but it was just okay for me. "

    " An incredibly fun read. I gave it five stars based primarily on my low expectations and how pleasantly I was surprised. Well done! "

    " May have to read the subsequent books in this series at some point. Entertaining. And there are still many unanswered questions. (Side note: This author once wrote 007 books?) "

    " I just finished the black stilleto. The premise for the book was great, a masked female avenger during the 1950's overcoming impossible odds. I was gripped pretty much through most of it. The only thing is I felt the ending was rushed. I rather not give the details but it felt rather abrupt, in terms of how the story was built in contrast to where the story ends. It would have been better if some of the loose ends were dealt with, like some of the extrasensory stuff. Just the same readers will be entertained by the unique approach to the characters as well as fall in love with Judy Cooper. "

    " A man finds his mother's diary from the 1950s. She's currently suffering from Alzheimer's disease in a nursing home, but the diary shows that when she was a young woman she had a surprisingly different life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ericahayley | 12/11/2013

    " Captivating and good. However, the book was quite climatic and the ending just happened. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Terry | 11/7/2013

    " This book just as good as the first!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 11/4/2013

    " Stayed up all night to finish it... I love books in diary format...can't wait to read the next book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 10/26/2013

    " It really was a good book. Aways in I thought it was a bit corny ha ha but it was written well and the fight scenes were described very well. You could actually visualize what was happening. I may just have to read the next book. "

    " I really had high hopes for this but unfortunately I couldn't get into the characters and I just didn't like the whole current time premise. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natalie | 6/7/2013

    " I liked the story told in diary form about the Black Stiletto. I did not care for the framing story as much. "

    " I only read this because my two-year-old somehow managed to purchase it on my Kindle! But still, it was an entertaining read! "

    " love love love!! Can't wait to read the second one. "

    " This was a bargain buy from Amazon & I started on book 2 before I realized there was a book 1 so I stopped reading book # 2 bought the Black Stiletto & I have to say I read bith books in a couple of days. Strong female character at a time when there were no women heros. "

    " Kinda Silly - who reada Ha Ha after every sentence. That's seriously annoying at same time I'm interested in knowing more and trying to figure out who fathered Stiletto's child. I may give this series another try. "
