Help! I have tried many times to find this book with no success. Ultimately what I remember about the book is that it is about a hardened P.I or business man or some sort that has telepathy and has used it to gain power and woman all of his life. For some reason I can't remember much else other than the government or some other business was after him, and it had something to do with a spaceship. I know covers change, but on ONE of the paperback covers, the man is standing on a hill with somebody else overlooking a bay by a city and in the bay there is a HUGE spaceship (as in city size or something) either crashing into the water or being rasied out backwards. Hard to tell. I know it is an older book, perhaps 70's or 80's at the latest, and I could have sworn it was by either Keith Laumer or Clifford D. Simak (but looking up their bibliographies doesn't find me the book). Any ideas or prodding of my memory is greatly appreciated! I might not remember much of the book, but I do remember I loved it immensely.
