Perfect Mendacity

Jason Wells

A microbiologist for a defense contractor is deeply paranoid. An incriminating memo was leaked to the media and his employer now is investigating him. Did his wife do the whistleblowing? Is his best friend spying on him? Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you. He has decided he needs to learn how to defeat a lie detector, to protect himself and his wife. The polygraph consultant’s techniques require him to look deep inside himself. He is forced to look squarely at his dark secrets as this desperate quest toward the perfect lie is undertaken.
