Overview

An experimental teleportation device fails, phasing the test pilot into another dimension, into three entities that can see and be seen but appear to be invulnerable to injury. This accident makes possible the Witness Corps--trained observers sent to high crime areas to observe and later testify against criminals. The program is so successful that just the presence of a phaser is enough to deter most crimes. Rob Stone, an operative on phaser assignment, is recalled to the Corps' secure compound to find everyone in an uproar. A fellow phaser, a female, has been murdered--something they all believed impossible. The Corps is further shaken by the revelation that the assailant is a phaser. When all Corps members are accounted for, it appears the unthinkable has happened--someone outside has obtained the phaser technology. Cheryl Brooks, a former martial arts expert, now paraplegic from an accident, learns she is compatible for phasing and demands admittance to the Corps, which is granted when they discover her phased selves aren't paralyzed. Rob and Cheryl are teamed in the ensuing mission to find and apprehend the illegal phaser. In this high-action story the killer, Ralph Ramsey, is a wily adversary who seems to have the edge. Not only doesn't he have to play by Witness Corp rules, he's learned a few tricks about phasing the Corps hasn't even discovered yet...

The supporting cast are all well done and there is plenty of good writing. Add in a movie sub-plot and a romantic situation. Atk. Butterfly is showing a different side from the other books of his I've read and he is showing that he is versatile and talented.
