About Face by Donna Leon

At a dinner party given by his
parents-in-law, Commissario Brunetti meets Franca Marinello, the wife of a
prosperous Venetian businessman. He’s charmed – perhaps too charmed, suggests
his wife Paola – by her love of Virgil and Cicero, but shocked by her
appearance. A few days later, Brunetti is visited by Carabinieri Maggior
Filippo Guarino from the nearby city of Marghera. As part of a wider
investigation into Mafia takeovers of businesses in the region, Guarino wants
information about the owner of a trucking company who was found murdered in
his office. He believes the man’s death is connected to the illegal
transportation of refuse – and more sinister material – in his company’s
trucks. No stranger to mutual suspicion and competition between rival Italian
police departments, Brunetti is nevertheless puzzled by the younger man’s
behaviour. Eventually Guarino agrees to email a photo of his suspect, but by
the time the photograph arrives, he himself is dead. Was he killed because he
got too close?
