Overview

Marna has a PhD in theoretical physics. So does Tess.
Marna is unhappy because nobody will pay attention to her theory of quantum displacement. Tess is unhappy because everybody is paying attention to her husband's reverse camera, Aremac. Half the FBI thinks Roger has the answer to the terrorism problem. The other half thinks he's a terrorist.

Marna husband, Karl, a talented painter, is an alcoholic, and never paints anything. Roger rarely drinks, but invents everything.

Aremac threatens to overturn the world of jurisprudence, because it can project pictures from inside the human brain. Police use Aremac to free the innocent and convict the guilty. Marna's theory imperils the entire human economic system by offering perpetual power at virtually zero cost.

The entire world wants control over these inventions. They will go to any length to get them, but first they would have to defeat Tess and Marna's team of geniuses.

Gerald M. Weinberg (Jerry) writes "nerd novels," such as The Aremac Project, Aremac Power, First Stringers, Second Stringers, The Hands of God, Freshman Murders, and Mistress of Molecules-about how brilliant people produce quality work. More of his novels may be found as eBooks at or on Kindle. Before taking up his science fiction career, he published books on human behavior, including Weinberg on Writing: The Fieldstone Method, The Psychology of Computer Programming, Perfect Software and Other Fallacies, and an Introduction to General Systems Thinking. He also wrote books on leadership including Becoming a Technical Leader, The Secrets of Consulting (Foreword by Virginia Satir), More Secrets of Consulting, and the four-volume Quality Software Management series. He incorporates his knowledge of science, engineering, and human behavior into all of writing and consulting work (with writers, hi-tech researchers, and software engineers). Early in his career, he was the architect for the Mercury Project's space tracking network and designer of the world's first multiprogrammed operating system. Winner of the Warnier Prize and the Stevens Award for his writing on software quality, he is also a charter member of the Computing Hall of Fame in San Diego and the University of Nebraska Hall of Fame.
