A God in the Shed
-Barnes & Noble Best Horror Books of 2017 Pick -Runner-up for the American Library Association's Horror Book of 2017 "One of the most enthralling novels I've read in the last ten years. Dubeau is a force to be reckoned with." --Jerry Smith, Fangoria Magazine and Blumhouse.com "This is the page-turner you've been looking for." --Barnes & Noble The village of Saint-Ferdinand has all the trappings of a quiet life: farmhouses stretching from one main street, a small police precinct, a few diners and cafés, and a grocery store. Though if an out-of-towner stopped in, they would notice one unusual thing--a cemetery far too large and much too full for such a small town, lined with the victims of the Saint-Ferdinand Killer, who has eluded police for nearly two decades. It's not until after Inspector Stephen Crowley finally catches the killer that the town discovers even darker forces are at play. When a dark spirit reveals itself to Venus McKenzie, one of Saint-Ferdinand's teenage residents, she learns that this creature's power has a long history with her town--and that the serial murders merely scratch the surface of a past burdened by evil secrets.

"Dubeau's ability to build a sense of mystery and suspense is equal to that of authors at the top of the horror food chain...When it comes to literary darkness, it doesn't get much darker than A God in the Shed, and it doesn't get much better, either. Wow, just f***ing wow...If you add only one new author to your lexicon this year, J-F Dubeau is the one I'd recommend." --Shane D. Keene, Horror Talk "Complex characters, haunting imagery, and a touch of fantasy. This is the page-turner you've been looking for!" --Barnes & Noble "If you're looking for some summer reading that is both unsettlingly gory and a fascinating supernatural mystery, you need to pick up A God in the Shed. Dubeau showcases his great imagination...this something readers need to experience for themselves." --Wicked Horror "Move over True Detective. A rich, gothic story of murder and mystery, A God in The Shed is quite possibly one of the most enthralling novels I've read in the last ten years. Dubeau is a force to be reckoned with." --Jerry Smith, Fangoria Magazine and Blumhouse.com "A God in the Shed is a masterful work of mystery, a suspenseful cornucopia of carnage and terror." --Ken Artuz, Founder and Editor of DecayMag "An utterly terrifying atmospheric thriller, with A God in the Shed author, J.F. Dubeau rightfully creates a worthy space for himself next to the likes of Stephen King, Dan Simmons, Richard Laymon and others." --Farid-ul-Haq, TheGeekiary.com "It's Stephen King's It meets Jeepers Creepers...I'd definitely recommend A God in the Shed by J-F. Dubeau to readers of dark fantasy and of course horror. It's a great mix of fresh and established concepts and could signal the arrival of a new bold voice in the world of fiction that makes you so scared you could pee you pants." --Charlie Hopkins, Fantasy Faction "This novel puts a wily, sometimes ghastly, twist on the 'small-town conspiracy' genre, and what a secret this little village keeps, perhaps protecting humanity from the ultimate unspeakable evil." --VOYA Magazine "I rarely get creeped out by books, but there were scenes inside this that made my skin itch. A highly original novel and one I will remember for a long time." --Grim Reader Reviews
