I am looking for a book that is about people here on earth that have developed special powers over the years and this one starts off with a guy who is holding his wife and kid hostage in his own home while he goes slowly insane (from someone with these special powers who has touched him) and a cop from the local area (female main character) is called in and working the negotiation.

The guy (male main character) is called in because he works for the government in these types of sitautions.

The crazy guy in the house touches the female copy and activates her latent powers and the Man Male character takes her away because her powers are becoming active.

He takes her to this underground facility and she actually has the power to 'see' the aliens that have inhabited their bodies (in a good way) which have given the people their power. The main guy who runs the cave..he has 2 of these aliens and they attack her to kill her because they know she can see them.

it is driving me crazy. Does this sound familiar?

It sounds like an interesting concept but it's not familiar to me either.

Do you remember if it's a romance, an sf/f book, small press, mainstream...or maybe a movie on the SciFi channel's Saturday night line-up? :)

(grin) Love the Sci-Fi Channel.

But no...I remember holding this in my hand..paperback.

I honestly can't remember if it was mainstream or small press. I read anything that sparks my interest.

I do remember..that the main guy..his 'spirit' took on the mascot from the guy's high school. He was the coach there before his powers came into play.

The spirits came from another world that was destroyed and a few of them escaped.

Sorry, I've become extremely adept at finding books online just by the information I've received (I have at least one customer every day that gives me the bare minimum of what they can remember so that I can try to find it) Unfortunately I can't find this one. If you happen to remember anything more, let me know I'll see if I can't find it. A weird name you remember from the book, anything that might "stand out"

I'm pretty sure I've got you covered. It's actually a story in an anthology.

The story is Dragon Dance by Angela Knight; the anthology is Beyond the Dark and includes Emma Holly, Lora Leigh and Diane Whiteside.

I was going to ask if it was by chance one of Angela Knight's novels. Sounded like something she would write. Here is the link to the book that Elise is talking about: http://angelasknights.com/books/Fantasy.html#Dragon
