Dick, Philip K.
New York : Knopf, 2002.
this futuristic society, it is possible to know about a murder before it
takes place. A special team of law enforcement officers are working
with "precognizants" to make crime a thing of the past. No longer
is it necessary to track down criminals after crimes are committed - now,
we can stop them before they commit the crimes. It's a perfect system
- or so it seems. Unfortunately, there are apparently certain flaws that
have been swept under the rug. The precognizants don't always see
the future the same way. Justice is doled out after the "minority
report" is discarded, which works most of the time. When one of these
special law enforcement officers is pre-accused of the murder of someone
he doesn't even know, things get weird. In flight from his peers
in the department, this officer needs to solve the case before he gets
caught - or kills the victim. (Brian Blum
