Two years after his last adventure, obituarist Kendall Barber is still trying to make amends for his past by cleaning up the online presence of Port Virtue's dead. Business isn't great, so he jumps at the chance to work for the estate of a racist demagogue, while at the same time accepting an under-the-table job to find out who hacked the social media accounts of a police captain.
Who's playing games with the living?
But nothing is ever simple, not in a town full of petty criminals and poor decision-making. Before long Kendall is being beaten by neo-Nazis, smacked around by cops, berated by a beautiful journalist and caught up in a murder investigation. Actually, make that multiple murders. There's also a fight between a badger and a baboon.
Who's in over his head? Again?
Kendall has a quick mind, a smart mouth, a good computer and a large Fijian friend. But will those be enough to help him wrap up the case and pay his rent? Or more importantly, keep him alive?
The second book in the Obituarist series (yes, it's a series now) features thrills, chills, internet security jargon, desperate action, a free bonus short story (wow!) and swear words. So many swear words. You have been warned.
