Ari e il maestro di veleni

Ari e il maestro di veleni

Another special character by Paolo Roversi: a young girl with a special "gift" and the right nose for mysteries to solve.

All people have a characteristic smell and Ari has the gift of recognizing it. It is about perfumes or smells that others do not feel but she, a thirteen year-old girl who has now learned to exploit this skill of hers, does. From the smell that a person emanates, Ari can understand many things. She often helps her father Bart in his investigations, but this time it’s different: the stranger who has just arrived in town is a kaleidoscope of smells. Ari is baffled because it had never happened to her before: so, she renames him ‘the master of poisons’ because she imagines that that could be the occupation of that one mysterious person. The stranger is never seen around, he only goes out to go to the store to get supplies. Why did he move here? What’s his job? One day, just before the only road that connects the town with the rest of the valley is closed for an avalanche, something happens that requires all the attention of Ari and her father. A couple, husband and wife, disappear. The inhabitants begin to suspect that the stranger killed them… It will be up to Ari and her father to solve the mystery.
