Answer me this...

My weekend read was THE ANSWER MAN (Bantam, c1999, ISBN 0-553-58191-0) by Roy Johansen. The first sentence:

God, he hated this job.

Ken Parker, a polygrapher in Atlanta, Georgia is a man who's always taken care of everyone. Now, when the rent is due, his car is being repossessed and he has an eviction notice on the door to his business, enters Myth Daniels, attorney-at-law. She offers him $50,000 to teach her client how to beat the polygraph exam. But the price he pays may be more than he bargained for.

A good thriller, fast moving. I preferred his other books better but that's just my opinion and if you read others', there are several who disagree with mine. No matter, he's worth a look.
