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.

This book has thrilling plot, great details and rich language. Unfortunately, English is not my first language, so last two book's features became disadvantages for me :( After straggling to keep up with main line and trying not get drowned under details of characters' feelings, I gave up.
Hope your English is better and you'll experience beautiful world of this book :)

Reading Gerald M. Weinberg's Aremac Power: Inventions at Risk was like a return to the golden age of science fiction, when we all believed that science and scientists were good and, if we were just smart enough, technology could solve any human problem. Of course Weinberg has updated the themes to fit today's world and its problems.
The book provides a fast-paced follow-up to the previous book in the series, The Aremac Project, but you don't need to have read book one to enjoy this one. Coupling Theoretical Physics, governments' need to control technology to their advantage, the culture of Navaho reservations, and the ever-seething turmoil of West African states, Weinberg takes you on a rip-roaring ride across the world as the band of scientists responsible for the memory-reading Aremac struggle to maintain ethical control of `the monster' technology they've constructed.
