The Lizard’s Bite
by Hewson, David

Life was never black and white in Italy ...Something about the place both disturbed and interested him. Venice reminded him of a bad yet familiar relative, dangerous to know, difficult to let go. As their exile in Venice draws to a close, Roman detectives Nic Costa and Gianni Peroni are ordered to investigate an apparently open-and-shut case, a fire in a glass foundry that has claimed two lives, so all they want is to wrap it up quickly. However, as they dig more deeply into the insular glass-making community on Murano and the strange Arcangeli family, things don't quite add up. With increasing pressure from above to finish quickly, events spiral quickly out of control - with devastating consequences ...'You have a treat in store ...Superb' Toronto Globe & Mail 'Very enjoyable Italian mysteries ...cleverly worked out and sharply written' Literary Review
