About the Author

New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Raymond Benson is the award-winning author of almost 40 published titles. Benson is well known as the official James Bond 007 continuation author between 1996 and 2002. He is the author of the five novels that comprise The Black Stiletto Series--The Black Stiletto; The Black Stiletto: Black & White; The Black Stiletto: Stars & Stripes; The Black Stiletto: Secrets & Lies; and The Black Stiletto: Endings & Beginnings. Benson lives in the Chicago area.


"Benson once again takes readers back to an era and makes it come alive by conveying the feeling through many different devices. The Black Stiletto: Black & White should please any of the millions of Spiderman and Batman fans." --The Midwest Book Review

"This second installment in the Black Stiletto series is just damn fun, effectively mixing the story of young, fearless Judy and the poignant struggle of Martin to protect his mother from an onslaught of publicity that she won't understand. Sheer Entertainment." --Booklist

"Benson's The Black Stiletto (2011) introduced masked crime fighter Judy Cooper, who fought crime, inflamed public imagination, and, like many vigilante heroes, got mixed reviews from law enforcement as she roamed 1958 New York City. In this cartoonish sequel set the next year, Judy takes on an established mob (Italian) and an emerging mob (Negro) with her fists, feet, and trademark stiletto while flirting with FBI agent John Richardson. In the present, Martin Talbot, Judy Cooper Talbot's son, discovers his aged mother's long-buried secrets as revealed in her diaries and an old 8-mm film. Tacking back and forth between the diaries and Talbot's dilemma when someone else produces the same film, Benson crafts dual dramas. Stiletto's girlish diary touches on cultural milestones while she strikes literal blows for the downtrodden. This lightweight entertainment will most likely to appeal to fans of comic book heroines." --Publishers Weekly

"Raymond Benson does a wonderful job telling this tale with humor, suspense, love and just great characters in this outstanding book." & MysteriesGalore

."..richly detailed, well-researched, and surprisingly believable. In particular, the Black Stiletto is completely human and takes on human gangsters and street thugs, not super-powered adversaries..." --BlogCritics
