I think this book is my second favorite in the series because I got so wrapped up in remote viewing.
Remote viewing is a mental faculty that allows a perceiver (a “viewer”) to describe or give details about a target that is inaccessible to normal senses due to distance, time, or shielding. For example, a viewer might be asked to describe a location on the other side of the world, which he or she has never visited; or a viewer might describe an event that happened long ago; or describe an object sealed in a container or locked in a room; or perhaps even describe a person or an activity; all without being told anything about the target — not even its name or designation.
From this explanation, it is obvious that remote viewing is related to so-called psi (also known as “psychic” or “parapsychological”) phenomena such as clairvoyance or telepathy. Whatever it is that seems to make it possible for human beings to do remote viewing is probably the same underlying ability that makes such things as clairvoyance work. But remote viewing (or “RV”) differs from other, more traditional parapsychological activities in a number of ways.
I read a report issued (ssh! the CIA) on its research into remote viewing. It was fascinating as long as I could stay awake to read it. Why do government docs have to be so boring? Anyway, if you cannot sleep, try this: https://www.cia.gov/library/readingroom/docs/CIA-RDP96-00788R001400320001-2.pdf
Remote viewing has been sued to locate people, identify places, locate objects. Usually the sessions are conducted in a room with low light, and the viewer has some starting point: photos of a vast area, of a person, of an object. They focus from there. In Chapter One of FREEZE FFRAME, I describe a session involving my heroine, Kat Culhane.
Like all the other Phoenix Agency books the story involves all five partners, some of the wives, helicopters, a nasty secondary character, and truly macho men with sensitive sides. I loved having Mike D’Antoni realize that being a macho asshole had nearly cost him the woman he loves. By the way, his name is pronounced “Dan-Ton-E,” NOT Dee-Antony.”
So grab your copy while it’s still only 99 cents. The sale won’t last much longer.
