I highly recommend Painting The Invisible Man by Rita Schiano. In 2001, while researching the online archives of her hometown newspaper for a client, the author, freelance writer Rita Schiano made a keying error,
a simple mistake that led her to a path she'd been avoiding most of her life. It took her on a journey inside the world of her father, killed gangland-style more than two decades ago. Schiano turned that difficult journey into an engrossing novel, which explores the complex dynamics of growing up in an Italian family on the fringes of the Mafia. The story examines themes of forgiveness, atonement, and redemption.
