Alibi by Joseph Kanon
The setting for Alibi is 1946 Venice. It's survived the war and occupation without any physical damage. Adam Miller, who had been investigating war crimes for the American Army in Germany, comes to Venice to visit his mother. He's suspicious of her new suitor, Gianni Maglione, a suave and aristocratic doctor who may be after his mother's money. Adam also falls for a Claudia, a Jewish woman who suffered her own atrocities during the war, and she claims that Maglione is a war criminal. As Adam starts asking questions, he unfolds more secrets, guilt, and intrigue that most of the city's residents would rather let lie. He find that even though Venice retained her beauty throughout the war, many of its citizens paid a heavy price. Joseph Kanon's novel has received mostly positive reviews and the New York Times calls Alibi "his richest, most full-blooded work to date."
