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.
