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.

Really enjoyed this

Audible Originals like this, with a full cast behind them, are like listening to a movie without the need for a screen. They just seem to be getting better and better.

Good concept, bad execution.

The premise and story concept were both promising, but the narrative style is clunky and awkward. The dialogue is terrible. The voice acting is amateur at best, and truly awful in other areas. Sounds like somebody's failed screenplay adapted clumsily into an audio drama.

At the end I liked it

First, the performance is awesome, almost like a real theater, not like a regular audio book with a single narrator. The first chapter was very captivating. But the second was so slow in the beginning I almost dropped it. I don't think such dramatic change in pace is justified, especially in the beginning. Luckily the rest of the story returned to a good rythm and I was kept on my toes until the end. Worth listening after all.
