The Lizard's Bite

Hewson, David. The Lizard's Bite. Set in Venice, Nic Costa, Gianni Peroni, exiled detectives from Rome, and their boss Leo Falcone are asked to "confirm the findings" of Venetian police when two members of a glass-making family are found dead after a foundry fire. Corruption and secrets help make the case more difficult and the ending has a definite twist. Not a bad mystery.

Fiction. Mystery. 2006. 417 pages.


  1. Do you know if this is part of a series? The author's name sounds familiar... I like books set in Italy so I'll have to check it out :)

  2. iliana- Yes, there is a series with these characters. Costa, Peroni, and Falcone (and Teresa Lupo) are usually in Rome. :)
