Identify the signs Ask the right questions Get to the truth
Spy the Lie is a fascinating study of deception and a comprehensive lesson in how to identify and combat it.
Featuring case studies based on the authors’ real-life experiences in the field – involving ‘turned’ assets, KGB moles and criminal government officials – it reveals the methodology developed and used by the CIA to detect deception in the realms of counterterrorism and criminal investigation, and shows you how you can apply these techniques in your daily life.
Whether hiring a new employee, investing money, knowing whether your boss is being straight with you, or finding out what your kids have been up to, this ingenious book will enable you to identify deceptive behavior in all its forms, and show you the techniques that will help you reach the truth.

Review:

‘The latest work in the burgeoning espionage self-help genre ... In a broader sense the book also represents the deep infiltration of counter-intelligence techniques into civil society’ Author: Times

‘Amateur Psychologists will love this book by four former CIA officers, which plunges into the intricacies of lying, how to spot lies and how to react to them ... This is a proper account of deception replete with graphs, tables and sample interviews which pinpoint lies in all their glory. An absorbing work.’ Author: Sunday Business Post

'The publication of a book written by three former CIA agents claiming to teach the reader how to detect deception couldn’t be better timed.’ Author: Time Out

'A brilliant piece of writing which will enable anyone who needs to know when people are lying make a value judgment.’ Author: Books Monthly

‘The authors ... are generous with their tips for a successful interrogation’ Author: Sunday Times

‘No doubt the model here can provide useful advice for detecting lies’ Author: Time Out

‘The book... wastes no time getting straight to it, detailing the deception paradox, how to spot deception and gaining advantage about spotting lies.’ Author: Sunday Business Post

‘The authors... have accommodated a wider audience by theorising about everyday situations.’ Author: Sunday Business Post

‘This is a proper account of deception replete with graphs, tables and sample interviews which pinpoint lies in all their glory. An absorbing work.’ Author: Sunday Business Post

From the Author:

Philip Houston spent 25 years in the CIA, including roles as an investigator and a polygraph examiner. He is credited with developing a detection of deception methodology currently employed throughout the U.S. intelligence and federal law enforcement communities.
Together with Mike Floyd and Susan Carnicero – like Phil, former CIA agents and leading authorities on interviewing, detection of deception, and elicitation – he founded Qverity, a provider of behavioral analysis and screening services for private- and public sector clients worldwide.
Don Tennant is a former National Security Agency analyst, and is now a business/ technology journalist. He has been the recipient of a number of prestigious journalistic awards, including the Jesse H. Neal National Business Journalism Award.
