OVERVIEW: Hollywood has made a star of Todd Pickett. But time is catching up with him. He doesnt have the perfect looks he had last year. 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 doesnt even appear on any map -- Tammy Lauper, the president of his fan club, comes to the City of Angels determined to solve the mystery of Todds disappearance. Her journey will not be an easy one. The closer she gets to Todd the more of Coldheart Canyons secrets she uncovers: the ghosts of the A-list stars who came to the Canyon for wild parties; Katya Lupi, the cold-hearted, nowforgotten star for whom the Canyon was named, who is alive and exquisite after a hundred years; and, finally, the door in the bowels of Katyas dream palace that reputedly open up to another world, the Devils Country. No one who has ever ventured to this dark, barbaric corner of hell has returned without their souls shadowed by what theyd seen and done.
Mingling an insiders view of modern Hollywood with a wild streak of visionary fantasy, Coldheart Canyon is a book without parallel: an irresistible and unmerciful picture of Hollywood and its demons, told with all the style and raw narrative power that have made Clive Barkers books and films a phenomenon worldwide.
