The Slab. A vast orbiting slum where sweat falls in rain and the gene-spliced come in all shapes and sizes. Inspector Alex McLeod, recently suspended for excessive force and nurturing a growing addiction to bourbon, has been reduced to tending bar when an improbably beautiful vampire comes to him with a bizarre theory: there's a killer on the Slab, a killer with a liking for recreating ancient myth, in bloody and spectacular fashion. But who exactly is this vampire, and how does she know so much? And what kind of killer can walk through security systems without a trace, leaving deadly traps for those hunting him?

I have read a few authors who can express so much with so little, but not many. I am almost grateful for not having someone beat me over the head with clever, but ultimately, fictional details while still maintaining a complex and believable sci-fi story. I enjoyed this, and the preceding short stories, very much. Looking forward to more from Anthony Ryan!

Good read. A little background info would have been helpful. Would have deserved four stars.

Bar a few typos, this sci-fi short is as slick and professional as its conventionally published equivalent. The world of 'Slab City' is well realised and if i had any quibbles it might relate to the sheer diversity of its inhabitants - thanks to genetic manipulation, people can be pretty much anything they want - although I realise a lot of people might regard this as a plus.
