Warning: Do not cross the Black Stiletto!

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.

A huge wink & nod homage to Golden age comic heroine (Black Canary I), film noir & Hollywood.
Nice premise of middle age everyman discovering his mother as kickass sex symbol from her diaries.
Easily picture awkward session with psychologist.
Good ,but not great novel for the masses.
Author finally found his own voice after writing passable James Bond books.
