Summary
"Things are not going well for Inspector Salvo Montalbano. His relationship with Livia is once again on the rocks and - acutely aware of his age - he is beginning to grow weary of the endless violence he encounters. Then a young woman is found dead, her face half shot off and only a tattoo of a sphinx moth giving any hint as to her identity. The tattoo links her to three similarly marked girls - all victims of the underworld sex trade - who have been rescued from the Mafia nightclub circuit by a prominent Catholic charity. The problem is, Montalbano's inquiries elicit an outcry from the Church and the three other girls are all missing."--Cover

The problem is that Montalbano's inquiries elicit an outcry from the Church--and the three other girls are all missing"--Publisher's description
