FERRARO, Eugene F.
Investigative interviewing : psychology, method and practice / Eugene F. Ferraro. - Boca Raton : CRC Press, 2015There are few skills more important to the modern fact finder than the ability to obtain information through effective interviewing.

It outlines a highly structured and process-driven technique that takes a non-accusatory approach, uses no intimidation or coercion, and has been proven to achieve admission rates above 90 percent. This time-tested methodology is easy to learn and replicate and will help you to significantly diminish the likelihood of false confessions.
