The Incrementalists are a secret society of two hundred people - an unbroken lineage reaching back forty thousand years. They cheat death, share lives and memories, and communicate with one another across nations and time. They have an epic history, an almost magical memory, and a very modest mission: to make the world better, a little bit at a time. Now Phil, the Incrementalist whose personality has stayed stable through more incarnations than anyone else's, has been shot dead. They'll bring him back--but first they need to know what happened. Their investigation will lead down unexpected paths in Arizona, and bring them up against corruption, racism, and brutality in high and low places alike. But the key may lay in one of Phil's previous lives, in "Bleeding Kansas" in the late 1850s - and the fate of the passionate abolitionist we remember as John Brown.

I usually like Brust (especially his Vlad Taltos series) but this book was a disappointment. Too much about what the characters were feeling and not enough about moving the plot along. The first one in this series (the Incrementalists) was better.

Love this author and really enjoy the Incrementalist series.
