Thumbs up for The Graveyard Game by Kage Baker. Science fiction.
The setup of Mendoza in Hollywood starts to pay off in this, the fourth volume in the Company series. Think Doctor Who with less goofiness (my goodness, there’s even a Silence that will fall!). It zings along, and as I finished it, I was relieved to discover volume #5 on my shelf, because I can’t stop. Must. Find. Out. What. Happens!
To make matters stranger, they had the appearance of junior delegates from opposing sides of a celestial peace conference: the dark one with his little diabolical beard and the fair-haired one with his fragile good looks. As she watched, the devil jumped up the second his order number was called and went swiftly, if unsteadily, to take his tray. He grabbed the cocoa-powder canister on his return. Sitting down across from the angel, he added a generous helping of cocoa to his hot chocolate. Then, apparently seized by an afterthought, he opened the canister and shook out a couple of spoonfuls onto the marble tabletop. Giggling guiltily, he pulled out an American Express card and began scraping the cocoa powder into neat lines.
