The Graveyard Game by Kage Baker

Reviews of the first three books: The Garden of Iden, Sky Coyote, and Mendoza in Hollywood.

In the first and third books, there's brief appearances by Lewis, another Immortal, who has a crush on Mendoza. In this fourth book, he and Joseph surreptitiously start looking for Mendoza. Dr. Zeus' companies told the Immortals that after 2355, everything will change and nobody will have to work. They've started giving "gradual retirements" where Immortals can take half-year vacations and such. But Lewis and Joseph find that the Company is really storing the Immortals in underground banks. Not only do they not find Mendoza, but Lewis and Joseph also disappear, to some extent.
