The angels are coming, but their arrival means death for the human race. Two years is all that we have left. Two years until they come to kill every man, woman, and child on the face of the earth.
Society falls apart. People can’t cope with knowing what day the world is going to end. Some try to go on as normal, but the angels are not content to let them rest. The two year period is a trial that must be endured. The angels whisper into the ears of all who will listen. Kill your neighbours. Kill your friends. Kill your children. God will forgive you.
‘The Voodoo King’ Remy Laveau seeks to fight the angels and halt the end of days. He drives the people who listen to them out of New Orleans and sets up the community of New Sodom. New Sodom is home to all the people who believe that the world doesn’t have to end and that if it does have to end, it won’t end without a fight. But with society falling apart around them, it is more than just the angels they will have to fight. The humans that worship them are often more dangerous.
Aaron Walsh is a psychopath. For years he has kept that fact hidden, but one bad day is about to bring it all out into the open. When Jane Flannery walks into his computer repair store, he becomes obsessed. He wants to know every detail about her life. Unfortunately for Jane, Aaron has everything he needs. Her computer. Jane is in great danger and she doesn’t even know it yet.
PRAISE FOR MORBID THOUGHTS
“It’s strange to claim that a book about a guy who is this downtrodden as ‘fun’, but Walsh is a spirited narrator, no matter how spiritless he claims to be. Mind you, he’s an extremely creepy narrator and person, even hateful at times. Profane and grotesque, he’s still compelling; you’re driven to keep reading to see just how downtrodden he can be. If you’re in the mood to explore the dark depths of human behaviour, Morbid Thoughts is a riveting read.” – SPR
“Although this story is often somber and grotesque, McGovern injects enough nuance to prevent it from being a mere blood bath. A riveting character study even during its most appalling moments.” – Kirkus
