Inamorata Book Review

Book cover

 

Joseph Gangemi’s debut novel, Inamorata, sucked me in from the start.  I enjoy scary movies and imagining the truth in the paranormal, so this book was a quick read.  Gangemi ties the story to a true account set in the 1920s when the Scientific American offered $5,000 to a medium who could prove the existence of a paranormal entity.  The main character, who is on the research committee, is easily able to disprove many mediums’ attempts until one convincing woman seems too good to be true.  Gangemi’s wit is fantastic.  I was laughing through much of the book and appreciated how concisely he wrote it.  There are no frivolous details, which I can sometimes appreciate, but when I have so many books on my “To Read” list, I just don’t have time.  I definitely recommend this book for those who enjoy mysteries, science, and historical fiction.

Soon to come.
