The Wings of the Sphinx is the eleventh book in the wickedly funny Inspector Montalbano series by Italian author, Andrea Camilleri. Things are not going well for Inspector Montalbano. His long-distance relationship with Livia is on the rocks, he feels himself getting even older and he's growing tired of the violence in his job. Then the dead body of a young woman is found in an illegal dump, with half her face missing. Her identity at first unknown; a tattoo of a sphinx moth on her left shoulder links her with three other girls bearing the same mark, all recent Russian immigrants to Italy. Victims of an underworld sex trade, these girls have been rescued from the Mafia night-club circuit by a Catholic charity organization. The problem is, the other girls can't help Montalbano with his enquiries. They are all missing. As his investigations progresses, it seems that not everyone wants Montalbano to discover what really lies behind the organization's charitable façade. And not only does Montalbano have a case to solve, he has a demanding stomach to feed, and he must save his foundering relationship with Livia . . . The Wings of the Sphinx is followed by the twelfth gripping mystery, The Track of Sand.

Vanishing Acts Delia Hopkins has led a charmed life. Raised in rural New Hampshire by her widowed father, Andrew, she now has a young daughter, a handsome fiancé, and her own search-and-rescue bloodhound, which she uses to find missing persons. But as Delia plans her wedding, she is plagued by flashbacks of a life she can't recall. And then a policeman knocks on her door, revealing a secret that changes the world as she knows it. The Tenth Circle Fourteen-year-old Trixie Stone is in love for the first time. She's also the light of her father, Daniel's life—a straight-A student; a pretty, popular freshman in high school; a girl who's always seen her father as a hero. That is, until her world is turned upside down with a single act of violence. Suddenly everything Trixie has believed about her family—and herself—seems to be a lie. Could the boyfriend who once made Trixie wild with happiness have been the one to end her childhood forever? She says that he is, and that is all it takes to make Daniel, a seemingly mild-mannered comic book artist with a secret tumultuous past he has hidden even from his family, venture to hell and back to protect his daughter. Nineteen Minutes Sterling is an ordinary New Hampshire town where nothing ever happens—until the day its complacency is shattered by an act of violence. Josie Cormier, the teenage daughter of the judge sitting on the case, should be the state’s best witness, but she can’t remember what happened before her very own eyes—or can she? As the trial progresses, fault lines between the high school and the adult community begin to show— destroying the closest of friendships and families.

Water is more precious than gold. The story of Moses being toldAs a baby he was thrown into the River NileBut by the will of God he survivedHe struck a rock with his staff and 12 springs gushed forthThe Lord caused the parting of the sea and Pharaoh drownedYet the worshipped the golden calfMoses said we will throw it in the seaRemember the story of NoahWho was rejected by the idol worshippersHe preached to them privately and publiclyBut they did not listenThen the Lord saved him in the ark and drowned the disbelieversRemember when Jonah was thrown overboardAnd he thought the Lord could not save himHe called in the darkness of the belly of the fishGlory be to You, I have sinnedRemember when Joseph was thrown in the wellThe submitters and the warriorsThe appreciative and the unappreciativeThe Muslim and the warriorThe blessed thankful or the wicked regretsRemember the legend of Safa and MarwahWhen the Hagar the mother of IsmailSearched for waterBack and forth and this being one of the rites of HajjWater is more precious than gold to peopleBy A Submitter.
