“Acapella Blues” by Robert Bucchianeri is about a musician having a down turn on his life personally while estranged from his wife and with his career. Events change when he witnesses violent events next door, which pull him into the complex, dangerous, and tragic world of the Eastern European underworld. Motivated by a beautiful young Romanian girl with her young son, he gains self-realization of the losses in his own life. Some of the quotes in this novel reflect the bare honesty of a man’s emotions that I found gratifying to read. Congratulations, four stars!
