New York, NY, May 10, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Can the Aremac Project Save a Bomb-Shattered Chicago from Terrorists Bent on Destruction and Extortion? To find out, read The Aremac Project, a new sci-fi thriller by award-winning author Gerald M. Weinberg. Technology fights terrorism in a body-strewn race against time.
Drawing on neuroscience and nanotechnology, grad students Roger Fixman and Tess Myers develop the software and machinery to take pictures of a person's memory. Unwittingly, these earnest researchers provide the US government -- and its enemies -- with a new and deadly form of interrogation. The Aremac Roger and Tess develop is just what FBI agents Don Capitol and Lucinda Duke need as they attempt to identify and pursue a terrorist group that is bombing landmarks in Chicago and attempting to extort millions from the city.
Desperate for clues, Agents Capitol and Duke hire Roger and Tess to delve into a suspect's mind. But just as their prisoner's defenses start to crumble, a murderer puts an end to their progress. The Aremac holds the key to identifying the murderer, which makes the machine -- and its developers, Roger and Tess -- the next terrorist target.
