    About Face ePUB Ø Hardcover about pdf, face ebok, About Face PDFEPUBMy faith in Donna Leon is restored after what was for me the disaster of The Girl of his Dreams All the regular characters are here with the addition of a new one the fascinating Commissaria same rank as Brunetti Claudia Griffoni She is beautiful a bit mysterious and Brunetti is as smitten as anybody married to Paola could be She looks to become a regular I hope so The mystery is a good one and is solved Justice is done although not in a way that would appeal to American jurisprudence The picture of a rudderless Italy sinking slowly into lawlessness is I'm afraid probably pretty accurate The title is ambiguous and Leon plays nicely with all its possible meanings And one of the characters has book discussions with Brunetti revealing that her favorite authors are Virgil Cicero and Ovid What could be better And some knowledge of Book 2 of Ovid's Fasti helps not in solving the mystery
