Mystery Discussion Group
Centuries & Sleuths Bookstore, Saturday, March 21 at 2pm
This is the first in Raymond Benson's Black Stiletto series, The Black Stiletto is this month's Mystery Dicsussion Group's selection. Raymond has written several and varied mystery novels before this series, including two volumes on "007", The Union Trilogy and Choice of Weapons with the endorsement of the Ian Fleming estate. So imagine the thrill that Raymond Benson will be here to listen to the Group's comments on The Black Stiletto and Group will find out from Raymond first hand what a writer has in mind and what he put's into writing a mystery series.

This is the 2nd in three schelued Author "Visitations" with Centuries & Sleuths Mystery Discussion Group. Don't miss this almost "private audience" with a local author.

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.
