Discover the Real Message.

Know Truth.

Know Deception.

The author of this book, a retired police officer, has 45 years of investigative experience and he passes on wisdom from those years in this nonfiction book.

This book is packed with advice about how to discern when someone is lying. It teaches investigators to carefully construct their questions to get to the truth as well as how to analyze answers.

The author amazed me with his analysis of actual interviews. The ransom letter for JonBenet to her parents, John and Patsy Ramsey, is also analyzed by the author. It’s fascinating.

I couldn’t put the book down.

I think this is an excellent resource for investigators and for writers of suspense novels. Well-written.
