Could the author be psychologist David Lykken? He is deceased now, but for many years he was a professor at the University of Minnesota. One of his research interests was in lie detection and the value of polygraph machines. Here's a link to his obit:
David Lykken, 78, Dies; Studied Behavior - The New York Times<https://www.nytimes.com/2006/09/20/obituaries/20lykken.html>
David T. Lykken’s studies of criminal behavior, polygraph testing and especially the genetics of personality in twins helped undermine some of the most cherished notions of social science.

Subject: [PW] Searching for Author of Forensic Psychology Books
A patron at our library is looking for books about forensic psychology by a
specific author. He thinks the author's name includes either Lykke or Lyke,
although he isn't entirely sure of that. He said this author has written
just two books but he could not recall the titles.
Any ideas? We haven't been able to find anyone that meets the description.
Thank you in advance for anything you can turn up.
