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 there is no hint of her identity except a tattoo of a sphinx moth. The tattoo links her to three similarly marked girls, all victims of the underworld sex trade, who have been rescued from the Mafia night-club circuit by a prominent Catholic charity. The problem is that Montalbano's inquiries elicit an outcry from the Church--and the three other girls are all missing"--Publisher's description
