This had a good start. Inspector Adrian Philips has long felt on the outside. A human who has been "enhanced" by Yamish implants in order to police the rougher parts of town, he is feared by his coworkers and had been rejected by his ex-wife. After a fight leaves him wounded he finds himself in the care of the infamous artist. To be honest I didn't know what was going on most of the time. I enjoyed the characters but I kept rereading each chapter twice. Was this Steam-Punk?
