The Black Stiletto: Black & White by Raymond Benson


Black & White is the second novel of the the Black Stiletto. I really enjoyed it.
I keep rooting for Judy Cooper and want things to go her way.
Martin is reading the second diary of his mother as she explains what is going on in her life as the Black Stiletto. Martin had no idea that his mom was the Black Stiletto till she was in a care center with altimers.
The story jumps from what is happening in Judy's life back in 1959 in New York City.
Then comes to what is happening to Judy and her family now through the eyes of her son Martin.
They are both exciting and keep you interested and not wanting to put the book down.
Judy turns out she is starting to fall for FBI Agent John in her disguise as the Black Stiletto.
John is told to gain her trust so they can bring her in. The FBI and Police want her brought in.
Judy gets involved trying to figure out what is troubling her teacher in martial arts.
She learns more about being black in 1950's is really like. She also is being black mailed, finds a child porn dealer, raids a brothel, stops drug deals.
Martin finds old film of his mother than around same time its shown on the news. The man who finds the film is trying to blackmail him too.
Thier is plenty of action,drama,strong characters, deciet,some romance. A touch of what life was like back in the 50's what movies,songs that people liked. Really made you be in the 1950s.
I know taking the law into your own hands is wrong but I was rooting for the Black Stiletto. I decided what I said next would be letting too much of the cat out of the bag.
Soon I will be starting to read the third novel of the Black Stiletto that is coming out soon.
I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley.
