THE MACHINE'S CHILD
Baker does it again in the latest Company novel. There's more than enough action, adventure and compelling character interaction to keep even a casual reader of the series
riveted to the further adventures of hapless cyborg Mendoza and her three-fold lover, Alec Checkerfield.
With the year 2355 and the end of the Temporal Concordance fast approaching, other operatives are also working to undermine the Company because they fear the worst will happen in their brave new world. (TOR, Sep., 352 pp., $24.95)
