Stiletto has a ring to it. Second in a series from the infamous
James Bond 007 author, Benson introduces a unique type of suspense
for readers to enjoy. Revealed through her diary circa 1959, the
narrator, her son, takes the reader through the journey of the Black
Stiletto's secret past.
The book grabs
you from the beginning lines as he describes seeing his mother on
film for the first time after discovering she was once the crime
fighter known as The Black Stiletto, still alive in her 70's
in a nursing home battling Alzheimer's, To his amazement and yours,
he invites the reader to read along through her personal diaries.
It's a work
of fiction that takes on a very real atmosphere and makes it hard
for the reader to distinguish. This in itself makes the whole story
more intriguing and exciting. I did not read the first one, but
the introduction helps in identifying your place in the story, so
don't fear. But, I would suggest you do read them in sequence. I
think it is always preferable, because you inevitably like the story
and then have to go back to the beginning at a later date.
Pick this one
up, it is fast paced and enthralling.
