Overview

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. But 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.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
11/11/2013
Judy Cooper (aka the Black Stiletto) meets Leo Kelly, a suave ladies’ man in New York City, who persuades her to relocate to Los Angeles, in Benson’s appealing fourth novel featuring the masked vigilante (after 2013’s The Black Stiletto: Stars and Stripes). The LAPD proves more willing than the NYPD to accept unconventional allies like Judy, but disillusionment comes in the form of two gradual epiphanies: Leo not only is incapable of making the commitment Judy yearns for but is also a ruthless criminal, the Black Stiletto’s natural prey. Judy is canny and skilled enough to stay alive while tackling gun-wielding thugs, though she is armed with only a knife, but she’s not insightful enough to realize that she’s once again dating the villain. Reminiscent of heroes from the Golden Age of comics like the Black Canary and Lady Luck, thrill-seeking Judy makes an endearing protagonist. Agent: Peter Miller, Global Lion. (Jan.)
