Publisher's Summary

He's Hollywood's most dazzling star, whose flawless countenance inspires the worship of millions and fires the hatred of one twisted soul. His perfectly ordered existence is under siege as a series of terrifying, enigmatic "messages" breaches the exquisitely calibrated security systems of his legendary Bel Air estate.

The boxes arrive mysteriously, one by one, at Channing Manheim's fortified compound. The threat implicit in their bizarre, disturbing contents seems to escalate with each new delivery. Manheim's security chief, ex-cop Ethan Truman, is used to looking beneath the surface of things. But until he entered the orbit of a Hollywood icon, he had no idea just how slippery reality could be. Now this good man is all that stands in the way of an insidious killer - and forces that eclipse the most fevered fantasies of a city where dreams and nightmares are the stuff of daily life.

Enter a world of marvelous invention, enchantment, and implacable intent, populated by murderous actors and the walking dead, hit men and heroes, long-buried dreams and never-dying hope. Traversing this extraordinary landscape, Ethan will face the secrets of his own tragic past and the unmistakable premonition of his impending violent death as he races against time to solve the macabre riddles of a modern-day beast.

A riveting tour de force of suspense, mystery, and miraculous revelation, The Face is that rare novel that entertains, provokes, and uplifts at the same time. It will make you laugh. It will give you chills. It will fill you with hope.

    "If you like Stephen King ..."

    ... you'll like this book. I don't. I didn't. Rather contrived story line. Not particularly interesting. Too much gratuitous "horror". The only reasons I finished listening to this book: 1) It was one of my two monthly selections -- I'm a new subscriber and hated to waste my "investment", and 2) I was at our cabin and didn't have another audible book with me!

    "Too Bad"

    It's unfortunate that a great book has to be ruined by the seller! The Face is a great read once you get past the burps and glitches in Part 1 and Part 3. I've been waiting 3 months now to get a new download for this book. Hold off ordering until you check and make sure you can really listen without the burps and glitches.
