Eric Brown’s BENGAL STATION series
A favorite sci-fi series of mine, the Bengal Station novels by Eric Brown have been described as "science fiction meets crime noir" which is fairly apt, the main character being a jaded telepathic security specialist who is employed by the Bengal Station spaceport authorities.
The stories are well-paced and interesting, with plenty of action, interesting aliens and far-off planets. Brown is firmly entrenched as one of my favorite authors and I've not read anything from him that I haven't thoroughly enjoyed.
The following is an article by an excellent reviewer that was originally published about a year ago on SF SIGNAL, and which will give you a good rundown and overview of the series.
I hope you enjoy it.

Eric Brown has written and published just about one novel per year since his first in 1992. Many of those novels have published through Solaris Books, including his . At their heart, the books of the series are modern Psychic Detective novels, albeit set on a space station in the future and involving aliens. That “psychic detective” would be Jeff Vaughan, a cynical, distrustful man who, at times, is trying to run from his past. As the title of the series implies, the novels are set on (or launch from) Bengal Station, an interstellar orbiting above India and Thailand.
