(From the publisher):
The search for truth is no match for the power of temptation.
They call him the Answer Man. As a lie detector operator, he's an expert in the science of truth and the art of lies -- and both are coming in handy.
Because Ken Parker is in a bad way. His business isn't making enough to support him and his sick brother. The repo men are after his MG, and an eviction notice has been nailed to his door.
Then Myth Daniels, a slick and beautiful lawyer, offers him a deal: Teach her client how to beat the polygraph machine and he'll get $50,000 in cash. But Ken -- more than anyone -- should know the price of dishonesty. As he's drawn deeper into an explosive game of greed and violence, the question will be how to stay alive.
And this time, not even the Answer Man knows.
