Telepaths in a dystopian future
I have been trying to remember the title of a book I read back in the 80's.
It was set in a near future dystopia where telepaths exist and are persecuted by the government. I remember one of the main characters is a female professional or Olympic swimmer. When the government agents come to get her, they trick her into revealing herself by projecting a mental image/sound of someone pounding on her door, without actually touching it. Her answering it confirms her abilities.
The book was published sometime in the 80's as a mass market paperback original. I believe this was its first publication. It is not Slan or The Chrysalids.
The cover image was of several people standing around wearing the white jumpsuits/coveralls that for some reason everyone thought we would wear in the future.
