I usually don't read paranormal type books, but does anyone know of any Christian fiction books that have seers or people with esp that help solve  crimes? I know this sound a little unusual, but I thought it would be interesting to read a story like that. Thanks for any suggestions.

Actually Melody Carlson has a YA series: The Secret Life of Samantha Gregor. There are 4 books in the series, here's the list from her website

I think that Brandilyn Collins has something like that.  At least, the main character has visions. The main character's name is Chelsea Adams and a couple of the TItles are 'Eyes of Elisha' and 'Dread Champion'.

I was going to suggest that series, as well, but I haven't actually read them.

Ted Dekker has a book coming out in April about this, called the Bride Collector. You can read a description here: http://www.paperbackswap.com/book/details/9780340964989-The+Bride+Collector


I know Bill Myers has done some paranormal stuff, but I'm not sure about seers and such.

Wanda L. Dyson has a series called the Shefford-Johnson Cases that are good.
