Auris – Based on an idea by Sebastian Fitzek
A Jula and Hegel thriller, volume 3

When truth kills …

The heroes of the “Auris” bestsellers by Vincent Kliesch and Sebastian Fitzek have to fight for their lives together – a top-class kidnap thriller!

For years, successful true-crime podcaster Jula Ansorge has been trying to uncover the truth about the fate of her brother, who disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Moritz was first accused of a heinous crime by the police and later declared dead by the authorities. Matthias Hegel, the famous forensic phonetician, claims to have proof that Moritz is still alive. But the dubious and unscrupulous expert, who only needs a voice sample to analyze the psyche of a perpetrator, has lied to and manipulated Jula many times before.
She wants to meet him one last time. But disaster strikes: Jula and Hegel are brutally abducted. Apparently there is someone else who wants to track down Moritz – and to find him, the perpetrator does not shy away from the cruelest torture. Jula and Hegel, the unequal and hostile pair of investigators, are caught in an unsolvable, murderous dilemma: if they solve the last mystery surrounding Moritz together, Jula’s brother will be killed. If they don’t solve it, they themselves will die in agony in captivity …

“The story draws you in, the characters hold the reader captive. They are likeable, have rough edges. They are like you and me, have little secrets, sometimes dark ones. But in the end you know: Only Jula and Hegel together, that works!””
