In The Obiturist, Patrick O’Duffy has put a new spin on the crime genre. It has the timeless quality of a classic film noir only set current day, with protagonist Kendall Barber closing down the online lives of recently deceased. This in itself raises a lot of questions about what happens once we’ve passed away, but throw in an element of mystery and some confusion and you have a compelling read. I hope O’Duffy revisits the world of Kendall Barber – I think he has more stories to tell.
