In the dazzlingly futuristic Washington D.C. of 2054, murder has been eliminated. John Anderton presides over the Department of Pre-Crime, wherein three "Pre-Cogs,"--precognitive humans drifting in a flotation tank, their brain waves tapped by computers--pick up thoughts of premeditated murder and warn the cops, who swoop down and arrest the would-be perpetrators before the killings can take place. Although the Pre-Cogs are never wrong sometimes they disagree. The dissenting Pre-Cog is said to have filed a minority report. If you could outsmart the Pre-Cog system, you would have committed the perfect crime. Bureau director Lamar Burgess tries to shield Anderton from bureaucrats like Danny Witwer of the Justice Department. As the pre-crime strategy prepares to go national, Witwer seems to have doubts about its wisdom--or he is only jealous of its success?

Nanny McPhee returns by Emma Thompson( Visual )

3 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Trama: I tre bambini della famiglia Darling, coccolati dai genitori amorevoli e minacciati dalle zelanti attenzioni di una zia che intende trasformare la primogenita in una elegante signorina, ricevono la visita di Peter Pan, ragazzino volante all'inseguimento della propria ombra. Ô l'amore a prima vista nato tra quest'ultimo e la ragazza a far volare tutti in direzione della "seconda stella a destra" fino al fatato paesaggio dell'isola che non c'è. Lì cominciano le schermaglie tra Peter, capo della banda dei bambini sperduti, la protagonista, decisa a strappare l'eroe dal suo mondo per costruire con lui la sua vita adulta, Campanellino gelosa e pronta ad impedire la partenza di Peter Pan, e Capitan Uncino, il capo dei pirati ansioso di far pagare all'eroe l'amputazione della mano. Le avventure si susseguono con continui capovolgimenti di fronte, eterne incertezze sulla scelta di diventare grandi, in una (classica) lotta tra bene e male dove nessun colpo, anche il più basso e scorretto viene risparmiato: Capitan Uncino, dopo aver rapito Campanellino e i tre fratellini Darling, fa avvelenare Peter riducendolo in fin di vita. Sarà proprio l'amore, rappresentato da un tenero bacio tra i due protagonisti, a far rinvigorire Peter, di nuovo in grado di volare grazie ai suoi pensieri felici, e a consentirgli di sconfiggere e ridicolizzare il vecchio Uncino, lasciandolo tra le grinfie del terribile coccodrillo. La nostalgia dei genitori convince infine i tre fratelli a fare ritorno a casa; l'invito per Peter Pan è quello di seguirli affrontando la crescita e la vita adulta, passi necessari per continuare a vivere il suo amore per Wendy. Le favole però non possono permettersi di perdere i propri eroi, e la conclusione non può che essere una sola: tutti i bambini devono diventare adulti tranne uno, Peter Pan
