Nic Costa and Gianni Peroni's humiliating exile in Venice is nearly at an end, and their long-awaited holiday is about to begin.

However, as they dig deeply into the insular region of Murano, things don't quite add up. Under pressure to finish quickly so that urbane British millionaire Hugo Massiter's property deal can be concluded, events spiral quickly out of control with devastating consequences.… (mere)

Een beter verhaal dan de vorige, hoewel nog geen topper. Op sommige momenten wat langdradig .

De detectives Costa en Peroni zijn samen met hun leidinggevende, inspecteur Falcone, verbannen naar Venetië nadat ze hun superieuren (in [b:De Pantheon getuige|9438147|De Pantheon getuige (Nic Costa #3)|David Hewson|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1302675961s/9438147.jpg|1546578]) dwars hebben gezeten.

Omdat zij nu eindelijk 2 weken vakantie hebben, komen hun vriendinnen Emily en Teresa over. De vakantie wordt echter ingetrokken, als de oven van een glasblazerij oververhit raakt en twee mensen om het leven komen. De mensen zijn man en vrouw, en het blijkt al snel dat de vrouw zwanger was. Haar man was echter impotent... Het bedrijf is zo goed als bankroet. Een rijke Engelsman wil het bedrijf kopen. Hij is echter verwikkeld in een aantal legale en illegale zaken.

Zij moeten er voor zorgen dat de uitslag van hun onderzoek overeenkomt met de opinie van de commissaris, namelijk dat het om een huiselijke ruzie gaat.

Voor ongeveer een derde deel was het verhaal moeilijk om in te komen, maar daarna gaat het steeds beter.

I'm glad I read [Lucifer's Shadow] seven years ago, so I've been very familiar with some of the main characters alongside the investigator team. This is actually the continuation of it. Nic and his team investigate in Venice. In a glass blowing a double murder took place. It is not easy for the investigators to find the right footprints, they are nevertheless on strange terrain and they are placed many stones in the way, so that the corruption that prevails in this city does not come to light.

well for the first 300 pages i liked it. it's well paced , the dialogue is really well written and the plot develops nicely. but after those 300 pages it all goes sideways. all the re-telling in retrospect just pissed me off. i mean it's ok if you put it here and there for some diversity but here is just way too much. and there are too many unnecessary location descriptions , i mean i can pretty much picture for mu self what an uninhabited island in a lagoon looks like i don't need 10 pages telling me.

Weer een prima speurtocht van Nic Costa en zijn vrienden. Dit maal komen ze terecht in Venetie. Ik had nooit zoveel met Venetie, maar na het lezen van dit boek lijkt me een bezoekje toch wel erg leuk. ( )

'The Lizard’s Bite' is the fourth book in the series of the Nic Costa Mysteries featuring Nic Costa, his partner Gianni Peroni and their Commissario Leo Falcone. This story starts off with the death of two members (husband and wife) of a local glass making family. Nic Costa, Gianni Peroni and Commissario Leo Falcone who at the end of the previous book were exiled to Venice as a punishment, get assigned to this case. They were instructed to turn in a quick conclusion of a domestic murder-suicide and take their leave, as they were near the end of their stay. But it quickly becomes obvious that it was not a domestic murder-suicide as different characters and situations come up. An Englishman who wants to take over the glass making family’s property, the lead on the case Hugo Massiter… Costa and his colleagues are pulled into a web of lies, deceit and cover-ups, and soon find that not everything is as it seems.

The book started off very slowly but builds up as it goes on, bit by bit. There are many twists and turns in the plot, and many surprises, especially the unpredictable ending. ( )
