On the primitive world of Cull, Earth Central Security agent Ian Cormac is hunting an interstellar dragon, not realizing that far away a competitor has resurrected a brass killing machine called "Mr. Crane" to assist in a similar hunt encompassing entire star systems. Reprint.

McMillan Palgrave

Ian Cormac is a legendary Earth Central Security agent, the James Bond of a wealthy future, the AI-ruled Polity of Worlds. Mr. Crane is an insane killer android, formerly believed destroyed, whose artificial brain is now resuscitated in a shiny new metal body. They are on a collision course across the galaxy.

From the Philip K. Dick Award nominee author of Cowl, an adrenaline-powered new SF adventure: Brass Man. Neal Asher returns to his trademark Polity future setting, in a sequel to Gridlinked, which called "brilliant and audacious work, chock-full of cutting-edge ideas."
Ian Cormac, a legendary Earth Central Security agent, the James Bond of a wealthy future, is hunting an interstellar dragon, little knowing that, far away, his competition has resurrected an horrific killing machine named "Mr. Crane" to assist in a similar hunt, ecompassing whole star systems. Mr. Crane, the insane indestructible artificial man now in a new metal body, seeks to escape a bloody past he can neither forget nor truly remember. And he is on a collision course with Ian Cormac.

Team Iain Banks I bet. The story would have been made much better if they left out the nonsensical science fiction bits like time travel and interstellar fusion engine drives that need refueling. Science fiction is based on good science eg the Culture novels.
Looks like a combo of writers. Obviously a team of wordsmiths as good as the Iain Banks one and some other not so good one.
