The Graveyard Game, by Kage Baker

This is the fourth book in the late Ms. Baker's series about the "Company," whose employees are time traveling immortal cyborgs who rescue art, endangered species and more over the centuries.

Usually entering an established series four novels in would be annoying, but Ms. Baker did a fine job of catching up a new reader on the premise.   The writing gets tiresome; a great editor could have removed 30 or more pages from this to tighten it up.   But the plot is interesting, and gets more interesting at the very end.   By mid-novel, I'd decided to not bother reading another in this series, but by the last page, I've decided to at least look for the next volume at my public library.
