Done reading -- so far...

Finished "The Graveyard Game" by Kage Baker just this morning. I had speed read two thirds of the book from last night to this morning so that I could have it finished to return today.

It's an excellent fourth book in this series. I had originally thought that this was the last book but there is one more out now and another that is yet to be published so I've still got a way to go. Given the ending of the third one, "Mendoza in Hollywood", where Mendoza finds herself arrested and banished Back Way Back to 153000 BCE, despite the mentioned but not fully satisfactory lack of her presence in the present, Joseph and Lewis are attempting to track her, and several other immortals, down. This book is full of self-described James Bond espionage by some who know how and some who don't. Despite a very futile seeming struggle to reach the truth throughout the book, it ends on a very promising and hopeful note. Looking forward to the fifth book, whatever that is. (Not looking it up at the moment. Not very librarianly of me, is it?)
