Making a big splash in his literary debut, William J. Warner takes you inside the polygraph suite, inside the minds of the polygraph examiner and his subjects. As the tension rises, feel the sweat on the brow and see the tears drop as conniving perpetrators give up the truth or spin their tales. Experience the villain weave a whopper of a fib in an effort to beat the box while FBI Special Agent Cy Donovan untangles the web of deceit through Knee-to-Knee interview and interrogation tactics commonly practiced throughout the world of polygraph.
Warner places the reader in the room as a witness to the dialogue between the individual sitting across from his accuser, torn between surrendering the truth while the desire of telling a falsehood works as a concoction of poison that grips the soul.
Validating stories taken from actual events compliment the polygraph as an investigative tool, the utility of which is designed to compel the confession, despite embarrassment and humiliation.
