The Black Stiletto Book Excerpt:

New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Warning: Do not cross the Black Stiletto! 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.

The crime caper, Stiletto Assassin, depicts South Brooklyn, NYC, where the ruthless Russian mob-boss, Mikhail Lysanovich, reigns supremely. Detective Callum Mackay, a compassionate veteran cop, is seeking justice while trying to unravel multiple murders-perpetrated in the same manner: mutilation via removal of the victims' tattoos. In his pursuit of the killer, Detective Mackay falls in love with Dr. Zoya Chernenko, a biracial beauty and Assistant Medical Examiner, whose father was brutally murdered in his home. Zoya is seeking vengeance as she infiltrates Mikhail Lysanovich's inner circle posing as his prized sexual object, hoping to gather information about her father's murder. As Zoya's and Mackay's paths cross, a game of cat and mouse, laced with scenes of vivid murders, ensues. What starts out as a business relationship between Mackay and Zoya, develops into passion, leading to an inevitable conclusion!
