Miss Mara | 156 comments I'm looking for books that are about crime and mystery and have characters with "gifts". It can be a superpower, like mind reading or invisibility, or it can just be natural talent at profiling or an ability to tell lies. It would be cool if it was the "top secret organization sends out people with abilities to solve crimes" type of book. Some references for books like what I'm describing: The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes (https://www.goodreads.com/series/1192...) or the Variants series by Susanne Winnacker (https://www.goodreads.com/series/9006...). It doesn't have to be YA! Thank you :)

Abby Cooper, Psychic Eye

Ghost of a Chance

The Trouble With Magic

Don of the Dead

Shadow of an Angel (with this one, I'm not sure if this is the first book in the series or not. But the "detective" of the series is a guardian angel named Augusta Goodnight)

Juliet Blackwell has several different series with paranormal elements

Jacob's Coins

Charlaine Harris has 3 series with "talented" detectives as the MCs.


All of my suggestions except for the 3 with notes are the first book in their series. Oh, and the Jacob's Coins one is more of a novella than a full length book, but I liked the idea behind it, so I included it for you.
