Entertaining enough, this short story deals with more mentally/physically ailed people who can see the future (a bit like the schizoids in Martian Time Slip) but this time a whole policing system has been built around the idea of being able to predict crime and thus incarcerate would-be criminals before they commit the deed. Prophetic future, how much of it is self fulfilling and how much is preordained and paranoia. Entertaining, but nowhere as charming as other of his stories.

The audiobook version is nicely narrated, though the narrator lacks a bit of energy in his dialog reading, sometimes is hard to tell what is dialog and what is narrative or internal dialog just by tone alone. Not bad, though.
