Don’t Go in the Basement
In a brutal spasm of bad luck, Tom and Jenny Decker lose both their cheap Manhattan
apartment and their barely-above-minimum-wage jobs.
Their luck runs hot when they stumble upon a surprisingly affordable house in the
suburbs, an old friend of Tom’s offers him an amazing opportunity, and Jenny discovers
that she’s pregnant.
But there are dark secrets galore in the Deckers’ new/old house. The place has a
violent past. There’s a thing in the basement, a bizarre chrysalis Tom conceals from
Touching it makes him feel like a winner, like he can tackle any challenge—the
mortgage, the commute, impending fatherhood.
Until the night everything goes horribly wrong and the Deckers’ dream life is
exposed as the phantom it always was. The night the chrysalis starts to hatch.

Deneen's haunted house novel is riddled with creeping terror and the relatable growing pains of early adulthood. Tom and Jenny Decker live and work in New York City until their budget buckles under one too many rent hikes. After viewing increasingly bleak options, they luck into a once-in-a-lifetime deal on a three-bedroom Victorian in New Jersey. Soon after the move, personal trainer Jenny discovers she's pregnant, so Tom gives up bartending and his ponytail for the corporate world. Suburban life seems to be looking up until Tom starts unraveling, and it becomes clear that the house hides an insidious entity that has Tom, and their lives, firmly in its grip. Deneen (The Ninth Circle) gives readers a horrifying peek at the darkness beneath the suburban veil with a macabre story that will thrill horror fans.
