Publisher's Summary

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 cold-hearted, now-forgotten star 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, the Devil's Country, 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 an audiobook without parallel. 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.

Lower your expectations!!!

Where does Coldheart Canyon rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's among my top 10 favorites. It's bizarre enough to appeal to me.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Tammy. She evolved into a real person. letting go of her obsession and her no good husband.


What does Frank Muller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I like the way he reads, I know it's not for everyone, but he has an ironic note to his reading that fit this book to a tee.


If you could take any character from Coldheart Canyon out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Jerry. I would grill him...what was the payoff for setting this up? Would you do it again? Was it worth it?


Any additional comments?

Crazy book. Not what I expected but I grew to like it a lot. Like i say...it's fiction...not for education or enlightenment...just for fun.
