I have about a third left of the brilliant novel 'Deception Point' by Dan Brown.
These lines struck home to me when I read them earlier.
Think Biederman, Keller, Benbow, Garnier.
Gabrielle's plan for dealing with Harper was something Sexton called 'overshooting' - an interrogation technique invented by the early Roman authorities to coax confessions from criminals they suspected were lying. The method was deceptively simple:
Assert the information you want confessed.
Then allege something far worse.
The object was to give the opponent a chance to choose the lesser of two evils - in this case, the truth.
The trick was exuding confidence, something Gabrielle was not feeling at the moment.
