I thought the name was epers. It is about a phenomena where the lead protagonist has a special gift like telepathy and possibly the ability to kill and go unseen. He soon finds out he is not the only one who has this ability and is taken underground to find more of his kind. The paperback had a green cover with a hand on it, plus the author wrote a non-fiction novel about the subject...any help is appreciated!

With a name like bldrnnr, are you sure it's not Espers you're looking for?

Slan by AE Van Vogt springs to mind; Van Vogt was quite a keen advocate of the idea of telepathy.

Either that or The Demolished Man by Alfred Bester.

Have a feeling it might be this, though:

Hubbard is famous not only for SF but as the founder of Scientology.

Nope it is a newer book-2000 up-the author co wrote a book that detailed this ability in a non-fiction book and then spun off from there to create the fiction account. The cover was definitely green all over as the central motif. I believe it starts out with lead in a park or public setting looking for his Target when he notices a woman who can see him (and isn't supposed to). They both measure each other up, but neither attacks. He proceeds to follow her and she leads him to more of their kind. I believe they have the ability to kill with natural causes and go undetected...
