Psychic Detectives

Using the Power of the Mind to Solve True Crimes

by Jenny Randles, Peter Hough
An illustrated examination of the use of psychics in solving criminal cases.

Crime investigation is not always a matter of gathering hard evidence. Just as police officers sometimes follow a "hunch," people with psychic abilities have often supplied invaluable leads to help crack the most baffling cases. Psychic Detectives allows you to enter their world, revealing their astounding experiences and the often-heavy price they pay for sharing what they know. Police agencies are generally reluctant to admit to the use of psychics during or even after the completion of an investigation for fear of ridicule from the public and other members of the law enforcement community. Despite this, psychics have often become involved in a large number of highly publicized investigations into serial murders conducted over the last 20 years or more. Featured cases include the Kennedy assassinations; Jack the Ripper; the Charles Manson murders; Uri Geller's diamond find; David Berkowitz ("Son of Sam"); the Moors murders; Peter Sutcliffe ("The Yorkshire Ripper"); the IRA bombing, Manchester; the disappearance of Lord Lucan; the Patty Hearst kidnapping; and many more.

Jenny Randles and Peter Hough have been professional authors for many years. They have written 15 books as coauthors and more than 50 books between them individually, ranging across many aspects of strange phenomena. Their work has been serialized in many British national newspapers and other leading newspapers across the world. Jenny has also made a number of documentaries for the BBC, including a six-part radio series (Fact or Fiction?) and a record-setting BBC2 documentary probing government archives on the paranormal. The two authors worked together on the pilot and first series of the ITV networked show Strange But True?, and Jenny served as story consultant for every episode made across five years of production as well as a 90-minute “live” special. Jenny wrote the books officially tied to this hit series that attracted viewing figures as high as 13.5 million.
