Hardback. Psychic ability, or extrasensory perception, is usually associated with crystal balls, palm-reading and sťances, rather than the serious world of police detection. However, historically, psychics have often lent their mind powers to unravelling mysteries, and it is this ability to see beyond the evidence, which has placed them in a unique position as psychic detectives. The author examines the cases worked on by the most famous psychic investigators, from Peter Hurkos and the Boston Strangler to Dorothy Allison and the Atlanta child murders, plus many other intriguing cases of missing people, terrorist bombings and serial killers. Interviews with modern-day working psychics reveal how they tap in to their sixth sense through meditation, psychometry and dowsing, plus how psychic clues can help or hinder a police investigation. But what happens when these powers fail or are misused? The author uncovers famous frauds and hoaxes, psychic misreadings, and the criticism levelled at psi sleuths, plus the disturbing practice of psychic espionage, when the mind has the potential to become a deadly weapon... Profusely Illus. in colour and b/w, Resources, Bibliog. and Index. 124pp. 4to. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F. in F. dw.
