A breathtaking near-future thriller. From the NY Times bestselling 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.
