Hollywood has made a star of Todd Pickett. But time is
catching up with him. After plastic surgery goes awry, Todd needs somewhere to
hide away for a few months while his scars heal.
As Todd settles into a mansion in Coldheart Canyon—a corner
of the city so secret it doesn’t even appear on a map—Tammy Lauper, the
president of his fan club, comes to the City of Angels determined to solve the
mystery of Todd’s disappearance. The closer Tammy gets to Todd the more of
Coldheart Canyon’s secrets she uncovers: the ghosts of A-list stars; Katya
Lupi, the now-forgotten celebrity for whom the Canyon was named, alive and
exquisite after a hundred years; and, finally, the door in the bowels of Katya’s
dream palace that reputedly opens up to another world, where no one has
returned without their souls shadowed by what they’ve seen and done.
Mingling an insiders’ view of modern Hollywood with a wild
streak of visionary fantasy, Coldheart
Canyon is a book without parallel. It is an irresistible and unmerciful
picture of Hollywood and its demons, told with all the style and raw narrative
power that has made Clive Barker’s books and films a phenomenon worldwide. Download and start listening now!
