Publisher Comments:

The eighteenth enthralling installment of "one of the most exquisite and subtle detective series ever" (The Washington Post)

The Publication of each Commissario Brunetti mystery is an event antici­pated by Donna Leon's many readers. In About Face, she returns with a dazzling mystery that puts Brunetti's own family at risk. Soon after meeting Franca Marinello, the wife of a wealthy Venetian businessman, Brunetti comes across her name in his investigation of a trucking company owner found murdered in his offices. Though charmed by Franca's love of Virgil and Cicero, he must now unravel her connection to the Carabinieri's prime suspect. As Brunetti delves into the murder, he comes face to face with violence and corruption as dangerous as he's ever seen. About Face is Donna Leon at her finest.

Synopsis:

After an investigator from the Carabiniere looking into the illegal hauling of garbage asks for a favor, Brunetti soon finds himself in the middle of murder and corruption more dangerous than anything he's seen before.
