A Prayer From the Dead by Thomas R. Clark
It’s the year of our Lord, 2154…and Death watches over us all.
Two-time Splatterpunk nominated author Thomas R Clark presents a new adventure unlike any he’s told before in A Prayer from the Dead. The Crow meets The Handmaid’s Tale in this tale blending elements of folk horror, cosmic horror, and dystopian cyberpunk adventure, set 130 years in the future after The Rise of the Indigenous Nations and the Second American Civil War.
Fraternal twins Gabriel and Abigail Brennan are Irish-Catholics living the best life they can in New York City’s Manhattan Ghetto. They’re also elite assassins known as The Black Deaths, freedom fighters in the CRA, a terrorist organization bent on the destruction of the Puritan States of America. After their exploits attract the attention of the fascist theocratic government, a face from the past, a Puritan enforcer, known as The Templar returns for revenge…but the twins efficiency at their job has also attracted the attention of the legendary Angel of Death…and The Grim Reaper has plans of his own to fill his ledger.
