A Sentiment I Have Often Felt

     It was unusual to see anyone in a p-suit in the corridors. Walking back suited up with the machine pistol and her sword in her left hand might get a few looks. She was way past caring.
     April put the badge back in the bag and tossed it to Bob. “Take care of it for me, will you?”
     He nodded, obviously uncomfortable.
     “I’m going home for a long hot shower,” April announced. “If anyone tries to stop me I’m gonna kill them.”
     Not a one of them took it for hyperbole.

     [Mackey Chandler, April]

     The cited novel is the start of a near-future SF series. From this book, I’d say it has a lot of promise. I’ll keep you posted as I progress.
