Stiletto spells sex. Nothing else creates an erotically taut, arched foot or an overall come-hither silhouette quite like the stiletto heel.This exquisite book uncovers the compelling lure of the needle heel. A highly charged symbol, the stiletto suggests a multitude of contradictions - it can be elegant, vulgar, submissive, aggressive, subversive, conventional. The stiletto is phallic but supremely female, it makes the wearer at once vulnerable and in control. Six decades have seen the stiletto in vogue around the world with an ever-changing, kaleidoscopic clientele of classic ladies, Hollywood stars, fetishists, punks, princesses, power- dressers, cross-dressers, A-list celebrities, and the girl next door. For the first time, Stiletto attempts to uncover the compelling lure of the needle heel. Caroline Cox presents the various incarnations of the stiletto since its invention as a fantasy shoe brought to life by the flair and skill of shoemakers Vivier, Perugia, Ferragamo, and Jourdan in the early 1950s. Assertively modern, stilettos released women from the utilitarian wartime fashion of the 1940s, offering streamlined sophistication and glamour to women the world over. As the decade progressed the heel became saucier and higher, worn by starlets like Marilyn Monroe and Jayne Mansfield. By the end of the 1950s the heel was being worn by “bad girls” and had become a weapon of female power. The 1970s took the stiletto’s associations with sex and death and turned it into a fetish object, eulogized by artists Allen Jones and Eric Stanton. 1980s power dressers brought the stiletto back into the fashion arena, and today heels designed by Manolo Blahnik, Christian Louboutin, Jimmy Choo, and Gina are the badge of celebrity status and fashion savvy. This exciting new book by an international fashion authority presents the story of the stiletto for the first time, illustrated with new and vintage photography to explore the stiletto’s long relationship with sex, power femininity, fashion, and fetishism.

In this spirited sequel to the acclaimed The Rook, Myfanwy Thomas returns to clinch an alliance between deadly rivals and avert epic -- and slimy -- supernatural war. When secret organizations are forced to merge after years of enmity and bloodshed, only one person has the fearsome powers---and the bureaucratic finesse---to get the job done. Facing her greatest challenge yet, Rook Myfanwy Thomas must broker a deal between two bitter adversaries: The Checquy---the centuries-old covert British organization that protects society from supernatural threats, and... The Grafters---a centuries-old supernatural threat. But as bizarre attacks sweep London, threatening to sabotage negotiations, old hatreds flare. Surrounded by spies, only the Rook and two women who absolutely hate each other, can seek out the culprits before they trigger a devastating otherworldly war. Stiletto is a novel of preternatural diplomacy, paranoia, and snide remarks, from an author who "adroitly straddles the thin line between fantasy, thriller, and spoof " (Booklist).

Der New-York-Times-Bestseller von Raymond Benson! Zehntausende begeisterte Leser! »Sollten Sie BLACK STILETTO bisher noch nicht auf dem Schirm gehabt haben, stimmt vielleicht etwas mit Ihrem Schirm nicht." [Lee Child, New York Times Bestseller-Autor der Jack-Reacher-Romane] Zu ihrer Zeit war BLACK STILETTO eine Legende; eine Untergrund-Heldin, die während der späten Eisenhower-Ära und den frühen Jahren unter Kennedy in New York City einige Berühmtheit erlangte. Obwohl sie gesucht wurde und eingesperrt worden wäre, wenn man sie gefasst oder ihre Identität gelüftet hätte, war die BLACK STILETTO eine kompetente und höchst erfolgreiche Verbrechensbekämpferin. Doch irgendwann in den 1960er-Jahren verschwand sie von der Bildfläche, und man hörte nie wieder von ihr. Die meisten Menschen glaubten, sie wäre gestorben, und niemand erfuhr je, wer hinter der Kostümierung steckte. Bis heute blieben viele Fragen unbeantwortet: Wer war sie? Ist sie noch am Leben? Und wenn ja, wo? Als Martin eine Reihe von Tagebüchern mit den Aufzeichnungen seiner Mutter findet, ist er überwältigt. Sie soll die Untergrund-Heldin vergangener Tage gewesen sein? So steht es zumindest bis ins kleinste Detail in diesen Tagebüchern geschrieben: Wie es dazu kam, dass sie zu einer Kämpferin für die Gerechtigkeit wurde, warum sie sich dazu entschloss, außerhalb des Gesetzes zu agieren, all ihre Heldentaten als berühmt berüchtigte Superheldin, und wie sich ihr Ruf plötzlich ins Gegenteil verkehrte. Kurzum - wie sich alles zutrug. Konnte das wahr sein? Talbot ist voller Zweifel und Unglauben. Doch dann tritt ein alter Erzfeind von BLACK STILETTO auf den Plan, welcher gnadenlos Rache nehmen will, und damit nicht nur ihr eigenes, sondern auch das Leben ihres Sohnes und ihrer Enkelin gefährden könnte.
