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 villains, victims, and snitches as they fabricate their fibs in efforts to "beat the box" while FBI Special Agent Cy Donovan untangles their webs 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 good guy and bad guy as the accused sits torn between truth and falsehood. From killers to kidnappers, bank robbers, sexual deviants of every brand, and thugs and thieves alike, Warner practices his trade while hoping to expose them all. Herein are validating stories taken from actual events which compliment the polygraph as an investigative tool, the utility of which is designed to compel the confession despite the embarrassment and humiliation that burdens the soul.
