Publisher's Summary

Matthew Hanson is a forensic phonetician and the best audio profiler in America. He is able to create a psychological and visual profile of people using only tones, noises, dialects and voice colours. Thanks to him, some of the most dangerous criminals are in jail. Blackmailers, hostage-takers, assassins, the critical evidence that brought them to justice - short audio recordings. Hanson is fascinating, charismatic, difficult to see through. And: he is in solitary confinement.

A year ago he brutally murdered a homeless woman. The burden of proof was overwhelming. Hanson himself confessed to the crime and led the police to the corpse. And yet there are questions. Why would one of the brightest police advisers commit such a poorly planned murder? Why does Hanson refuse any defence? And why does he refuse all interviews - even one with the young true crime blogger Julia Abbot, who comes across inconsistencies during her research that could prove his innocence?

Driven by a traumatic incident in her past, Julia is not deterred by Hanson's insistence on his guilt. She decides to conduct her own investigation, which leads her to answers and dangers she never expected.

Interesting but not gripping

I enjoyed it as a book I could listen to that didn't consume me. The plot was good but the twists were foreshadowed too early and it was a little too like "Seven" or "Primal Fear". Still well worth a weekend listen.

A great " read " with a well finished story.

Too much redundant Foley. Loved the performance otherwise. Great plot that ended well while making me want more.

Gripping

Wonderful twisting plot. The characters were well developed & the performances were excellent.
what I need to know is, will there be a sequel?

Can't wait for the English version of Auris 2 & 3!

Once I started listening to it, I just couldn't let it stop! There might be some details in the story that aren't too "reasonable", the story is still full of excitement with its twists and turns.
I have to admit somehow I have guessed the culprit behind everything, yet the truth is no less stunning than it is.
I couldn't help searching for its sequel right after the last episode ended, pity only the German version was available. I hope the English version could be produced soon enough! I just can't wait to listen to it!

There’s a reason it’s free

Average story, drawn out excruciatingly and ruined by some awful acting.
I find it hard to believe a Sebastian Fitzek story could be so brutally mangled

Good fun

In the style of Baldacci or Deaver's Lincoln Rhyme. Maximum plot twists, high drama after the plot exposition is set up. Good narrator - I quite like the soundscapes, even if it feels like it's trying to drive emotions a bit too blatantly - I still prefer good prose. Very professionally produced. Don't count the amount of 'then suddenly' used!

Good story but some poor acting

Overall I enjoyed the story but the male lead was so wooden at times that it was painful.
