The Mammoth Book of Future Cops - Maxim Jakubowski and M. Christian

Basically what it says, so if you are a fan of the detective or crime story and are interested in a bit of science fiction to go along with that, then this anthology would serve you well, as plenty of stories in this book told with that style, as well as the odd straight short more standard sf story.

Quite well done, carrying a 3.47 average throughout.
