INVISIBLE: The Forgotten Story of the Black Woman Lawyer Who Took Down America’s Most Powerful Mobster
by Stephen L. Carter

ALA Annual Read ‘n Rave pick!

2 starred reviews!

“In the same vein as best sellers such as Liza Mundy’s CODE GIRLS and Margot Lee Shetterly’s HIDDEN FIGURES, this new work from Carter presents the untold story of his grandmother Eunice Hunton Carter, the black female lawyer who prosecuted notorious mobster Lucky Luciano. With artful storytelling and a narrative-like delivery, Carter tells Eunice’s story in the best way possible, offering a compelling, unputdownable read with as much value in social history as legal appeal. Not to be missed.” Library Journal, starred review

“Bestseller Carter (BACK CHANNEL) narrates the life story of his exceptional grandmother, Eunice Carter, an African-American attorney who masterminded the sting operation that resulted in the imprisonment of mobster Charles “Lucky” Luciano…Carter’s enthusiasm for his grandmother’s incredible fortitude despite numerous setbacks is contagious; Eunice Carter’s story is another hidden gem of African-American history.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review
