Baxter had invented an incredible MEM - Memory Exchange Modulator. It is a monitor that is capable of monitoring a person's memory and portraying the memories on a screen. It can also be used for transferring memories from one person to another as well removing a person's active memory. The person is hooked up to the monitor with needles that are electrodes penetrating the temples. Baxter had devoted his life to inventing and perfecting this machine. He had paid his volunteers handsome sums of money to be his subjects for experimentation. In fact, one of his subjects, Joseph, who was homeless, became his assistant.
He had always found subjects who were prepared to be part of his experiments. His subjects ranged from homeless, prisoners and others who had wished to be part of his research. The memories of his various subjects make fast gripping read. This is what keeps the reader's interest throughout. The amazing memories of prisoners convicted of various violent crimes are revealed on the screen, crimes that were even unknown to detectives. Here and there his research went awry and he met his life girlfriend, Mona, a teacher, as a result. Prior to that, he showed no interest in women or getting married. He was married to his research. The CIA even got wind of this MEM invention and wished to employ Baxter to work for them. This took him to all kinds of places, including Israel.
What makes this book fascinating reading is that the MEM apparatus is not described in great detail nor are there any complicated descriptions of experimental procedures that could cause the reader to lose track. As surrealistic and amazing as this story is, one's interest never sags.
I would recommend this book wholeheartedly to sci-fi lovers and even to those, who are lukewarm to sci-fi novels.
