Product Description

Who's settling accounts for the dead?

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.

Such a great book - and a bonus story at the end. I really enjoy this concept, and this character.

5.0 out of 5 stars hilarious one-liners and fast-paced plot full of absurdity makes this loads of fun to read 19 February 2015

Sharp writing, hilarious one-liners and fast-paced plot full of absurdity makes this loads of fun to read. Kendall Barber, Port Virtue's social media undertaker is part a film noir private detective, part reflective modern anti-hero and wholly the unluckiest son of a bitch to ever set up his own free-lancing business. Contains swearing, suspense, plentiful geek-jokes, and a suicide-by-bear - what more could you want?

Mr.Patrick O'Duffy, once again you have written an easy, quick, and interesting read. I had been very busy, and had to wait awhile after starting on the book, and then could not leave it alone. Your writing style flows as easy and intriguing, with curves thrown in at occasional surprise opportunities. Good job! Well done, once again A+ for you
4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable sequel 7 April 2015

You have to think that Kendall Barber's work is interesting, but not this interesting.

I mean, I assume the majority of his cases are as straightforward as shut down a few forum accounts & cancel some e-commerce accounts.

This one turns out to be a bit of a humdinger. Dead Men's Data mixes two tales into one as Barber handles the affairs of a dead scrap metal/hate merchant & assists a police captain who's feeling digitally insecure.

Things do not go easily.

In fact, with the wringer that O'Duffy puts his character through, I think I'd be happy if he retired the character.

I very much would like to see his Yelp! reviews, though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great to have Kendall Barber back! 18 February 2015
By Blithespirit - Published on

It's been a long time between drinks for fans of social media undertaker Kendall Barber, but it was worth the wait. There's hardboiled noir mixed in with author Patrick O'Duffy's humour, some gore and lots of social media/geek references. What fun! As a bonus, the ebook also contains a free Kendall Barber short story which takes place between the first and second novellas. I can't wait for The Obituarist 3!
