Publisher's Summary

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.

What the Critics Say

"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 10 years. Dubeau is a force to be reckoned with." (Jerry Smith, Fangoria Magazine and Blumhouse.com)

    "Didnt see that coming."

    Ill be honest, I’m not much of reader but was certainly intrigued by this book having heard the author talk about it on various podcasts. I chose the audiobook route because I have a terrible attention span. About 10 chapters in I was hooked and knew it was well worth my time. Hoping for a sequel and also excited to check out JFs other books!

    "Dark and wonderful!"

    This book was wonderful from beginning to end. From the very start this book had my attention and I couldn’t quit listening. David Marantz did an exceptional job with the narration, something that I sometimes struggle with. This book was dark and gripping, I haven’t enjoyed a read this much in a long time!

    "Starts off great, but ends rather flat."

    I won't spoil anything, but the book looks really promising at first. As things go on, the plot becomes rather hokey, and the charm was lost.

    "Wonderful and dark."

    Human darkness manifested. What happens when you discover the God of your own making. This brings into perspective the idea that we create our own demons and hell.

    Story
    "Harrowing, disturbing, and twisted."

    This eerie tale of murder and supernatural revenge recalls touches of Stephen King's It and The Last Stand, cast over the sacrifice of a still living soul to a cruel and twisted god with a pinch of magic tossed in for flavor. With a wide array of believable characters, this conflict between the natural and supernatural realms rages across time on a small Canadian town, the battlefield on which humanity and a demon god struggle for existence. Overall, an engaging tale with just a few tropes common to the genre, but none that detract. I can promise you I won't be watching the TV series of this tale. I like to sleep.

    "Nice and creepy, but begs a sequel"

    a great little gothic creep-and-gore of a mystery story but feels unfinished, leaves unanswered questions.

    "entertaining"

    This was a good rainy day book… not necessarily scary but intriguing and entertaining. It’s always a point scored by the author when I find myself rooting for a character, hoping they get a happy ending.

    There were some annoyances… like overuse of the phrase “the big farm boy”. But those didn’t distract enough from the story to make me stop listening.

    "Third Rate"

    The positive reviews of this book completely misled me. I suffered through the first couple hours and could not force myself to finish it. The story was dumb, the writing was stilted and the narration was sub-par. Whenever an author uses phrases like "she used the forest foliage to conceal her presence" rather than "she hid behind a tree", I know the author is trying too hard. This Stephen King wannabe needs to go back for a few writing seminars.

    "Silly story, silly title"

    I bought this book thinking it was a horror story - NOT - I suppose it was meant to be a horror but I found it just silly. Three boys find a creature in a cave when they were young and used to play with it. Then the story goes to when they are older and the creature is not playful anymore. It rips people apart and consumes their souls and calls itself a god. Some of the adults belong to a type of masonic lodge and are able to do a little magic, they want to find the 'God', capture it and make it give them wishes.. A young girl traps the creature in her shed with a webcam of all things. A doctor puts nails through the eyes of a dead young girl so the creature won't get her soul and she ends up a ghost. Things goes go steadily downhill as the book progresses they become quite silly right up to the end.
