Lying to a truth specialist, Maytag? When Corona already knows good and well that the room wasn't empty? Hopefully this is part of a strategy, and not an actual attempt to fool him.

It's not to fool him, at least, it is to fool him but not to hide information. It's to make him blurt out or reveal that he knows exactly what is inside this room.

...Let's hope so. Lying is so ignoble and not worthy of the woman Maytag is and aspires to be! Though clearly Maytag has made no attempt to hide Eye's presence.

And Bern would not approve of lying.

Yes, a ruse by Maytag to get the Thin Man to reveal what or who he believes is in there....  8)

OH, I thought the chapter was going to finish with the last page, in a "dun dun duuuuunnn" fashion. Oh well.
Looking forward to finding out what is so special about this girl. Also, I'm curious to see what's under that mask of his.

Brion seems to almost always have 30 or 60 page chapters. 30 pages might be okay for this, actually, reading it again. Also, I have no idea how one manages to have a precise page length like that.

She's got a point there.

Also, it makes very little sense that if you want truth to escape, you wipe people's minds when they leave. Why would you do that if you're concerned about the truth?  ???

Actually, he seems to be telling the truth.

I think Lehm's issue is he has not discovered his definitive "truth"... and is still searching for his understanding.  If he allowed people to leave without wiping portions of their memory they would indeed reveal his deeds and potentially lead people to him.. before he has the truth he is seeking... hence why he needs to wipe their memories.

"This world is not real" is not enough of a truth?
