Anatomy of Interrogation Themes is the first definitive interrogation field manual appropriate for all investigators having experience in the Reid Technique.
The most difficult aspect of any interrogation is the proper selection and development of interrogation themes. Theme development is essentially a persuasive technique designed to reinforce the deceptive suspect's existing justifications for committing the crime, thus creating an environment in which the suspect feels more comfortable telling the truth about his criminal activity. By developing the most appropriate themes, the investigator, not the suspect, controls the interrogation environment.
