Review: Painting The Invisible Man by Rita Schiano
"Painting The Invisible Man" is a story about Anna, a writer, who takes a journey into the past to uncover the truth about her father, Paulie Matteo. Paulie was brutally murdered in what looked to be a mob-style execution. Some gambling debts were the reason for Paulie's demise. Anna begins to look into her childhood and realizes that maybe her father was part of the mob. She remembers a particular car that used to park on her street. She painted her bicycle a different color every week to throw them off. She carried around a pellet gun and smoke bombs in her vest.
Anna starts researching the trial of the man who was accused of murdering her father is Angelo Capraro. Joey Casella, who just happens to have been Anna's first childhood crush, is accused of ordering the hit. She obtains what information she can from the library. With many questions still unanswered she calls her cousin Sophia and asks for a favor. Sophia's husband is Greg, the same man who is responsible for Joey's acquittal.
Will Anna get the answers she needs to move on in her life? Or will her father be a mystery forever?
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Anna is an extremely likable character who I was able to connect with. It is a wonderful story of one woman's determination to get the answers she needs. I definitely recommend this book.
