While there are lots of books out on the market on lie detection, this book is much broader than that, with a range of tips and instructions on a wide range of covert activities. With over 40 illustrations and tons of sidebars and boxes, the book is easy to use and can be read cover to cover, or flipped through for quick tips. We do very well with this kind of how-to and the private investigator angle is a great hook.
