About Face by Donna Leon
Donna Leon's Commissario Guido Brunetti series is always a good "go to" for me when I want to be immersed into Venice. About Face doesn't disappoint as Donna Leon always adds into her mysteries a little insight into the running of, more often than not, corrupt government officials. This one has Brunetti wondering why a beautiful woman would damage her face with so much plastic surgery that she has no facial expressions, why so much pollution surrounds them and where garbage and chemical waste is being disposed. Throw in a couple of murders and Brunetti is kept busy in the streets of Venice.
