His fiercely loyal agent finds him just such a place in a luxurious forgotten mansion high in the Hollywood Hills. But the original owner of the mansion was a beautiful woman devoted to pleasure at any cost, and the terrible legacy of her deeds has not yet died. There are ghosts and monsters haunting Coldheart Canyon, where nothing is forbidden . . .Clive Barker's Coldheart Canyon showcases the boldly innovative New York Times bestselling master at the very top of his formidable and frightening skills.

Mehso-so

A a well-told story, but nothing too original. In some cases, I found it overly contrived as I didn't believe that old movie stars like Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks, and Cary Grant would be trapped in endless sexual weirdness in a Hollywood canyon. But Barker creates characters you care about and the premise of a hellish world built from tiles alone is intriguing. It was a couple hundred pages too long, but they went awfully fast.

Here is my pick for #SetInHollywood A nice story about a cursed room, sex crazed ghosts, human/animal hybrids, Hollywood big shots and an evil actress. Just what someone would expect from Clive Barker and it does not disappointment 😈

Love it when I get time for some Saturday morning reading. As a younger lad I used to claim to be super into Clive Barker but really I‘d only read one of his books and was a fan of the Hellraiser movie. But I‘ve cracked into this and am feeling reassured of my Clive Barker praise.

When an aging action star‘s plastic surgery is botched, he hides out in Coldheart Canyon to escape public scrutiny while he recovers. But his biggest fan seeks him out and is determined to get to the truth of his disappearance. As it turns out, the old #Hollywood mansion he‘s chosen was once the home of a beautiful and mysterious silent film actress — and she never truly left.

j9brown This was one of the most ridiculous books I've ever read. Like, all I can do is splutter uselessly if I try to talk about it. You're in for a trip! 4y
OddBookishBee I love this book. I agree that it's ridiculous, but I wouldn't want it any other way! 4y
MirrorMask @j9brown @OddBookishBee It's sounds like I'm adding this book to my tbr. 4y
vkois88 That cover... it freaks me out... idk what it is about it, but my heart started pounding when I scrolled to it 😂😂 4y

I know I said I would start on Stephen King‘s Sleeping Beauties but I was drawn to Coldheart Canyon instead. This is my first Clive Barker book & I‘m intrigued. It‘s raining cats & dogs outside and I‘m in bed, can‘t ask for anything better now.

In the mood for a grotesque ghost orgy? Have I got the book for you!

Seriously, Clive Barker. Why are you like this. There was some really really cool stuff happening here, but you had to mash it into a trash sandwich.

Where's my shame bell, so I can ring it for myself for finishing this whole thing. I can give it points for that much - I only bail when a book is extremely boring, and this surely wasn't.

wellreadredhead This review has me cracking up! 5y
Whodunit85 You had me at trash sandwich. Now I simply have to read for myself, or I'll never get over the curiosity. 5y

Half Price Books also had a copy of Coldheart Canyon signed by Clive Barker, but I didn't buy that one.

Incredibly amused that (a) this library audio book is signed (b) this is an extra disc whose sole purpose is to be the bearer of Clive Barker's signature.
