Jack Devlin is a journalist working out of London, England in 1986, making a living through writing obituaries. Asked to write an obit for a French Canadian war hero, he stumbles across a previously untold story - the story of 60 French Canadians sent to France to work with the French resistance movement. Spanning 1980's and Second World War London, German-occupied France, and Scottish special-ops camps, Obit Man spins a tale of war-time coverups praised by William Stevenson of A Man Called Intrepid fame as 'wonderfully original...witty and wise...(that) sets forth hard questions about real war-crimes.'
