I think asking for a lawyer is one of the things not to do.
I don't know if they can legally keep you, but if not I would be walking out after 3 hours, sooner if they tried to badger me. Charge me or listen.
No food, water or rest for an extended period of time will make you nuts, especially with the added stress of being in a new situation
As for techniques, I think they work better on people who are actually guilty, body language gives it up pretty quick but it's a crap shoot sometimes.
The interrogation is in the form of a monologue presented by the investigator rather than a question and answer format. The demeanor of the investigator during the course of an interrogation is ideally understanding, patient, and non-demeaning. His or her goal is to make the suspect progressively more and more comfortable with acknowledging the presumed truth about what he or she is alleged to have done. This is accomplished by the investigators' first imagining and then offering the subject various psychological constructs as justification for their behavior.

I've watched enough Dateline to know if I'm ever brought in for questioning, my only words will be "I want a lawyer."
By the time Mr. Reid established a private polygraph practice in 1947, he had made several significant contributions to the polygraph technique, which culminated in a clinical procedure of diagnosing truth and deception without reliance on interrogation.

I have gone to the basic and advance courses of Reid, for my work.
All I can say is most of it depends on the inter fortitude of the suspect.
But, I can honestly say I have become a much better worker at what I do since I took the courses.
