Publisher's Summary

A breathtaking near-future thriller from the New York Times best-selling author whose books have sold more than a million copies. 

What if you developed a technology that made it impossible for anyone to lie? About anything. Would this save humanity from itself? Or would it tear society apart? And just how far would power players around the globe go to stop it? 

Elias Gibson has invented a technology that will profoundly change the essence of human behavior. But will this lead to a glorious future, or to the collapse of civilization? Before Elias can answer this question, he finds himself battling for his very survival, and racing to uncover the identities and motives of the treacherous forces arrayed against him. As he fights to stay alive, he will be stunned by one extraordinary revelation after another. 

But the biggest surprise is yet to come....

Veracity is a roller-coaster ride of a thriller, one that offers meticulously researched insights into both human nature and the future of the human race.

Intellectually lazy and (Ironically) dishonest

At the tail end of the Trump administration and everything it has entailed, I expected better from this book than the same tired argument that "both sides" are equally responsible for the increased political polarisation in our society.
The philosophy touted by this book reeks of intellectual laziness, completely dodging many important issues and dismissing the very real anxiety us young adults have for our future simply as "doomsaying".
In the year 2021, the science-fiction genre can and has produced far more transgressive and thought-provoking stories that don't need to constantly reference Star Wars to desperately pretend that they are cool and trendy.
