Ethan Truman is all that stands between 10-year-old Fric - son of Hollywood's biggest star - and sheer, murderous malevolence. As Ethan faces premonitions of his own death, Fric's hiding place puts him beyond help and into the path of Moloch, devourer of children.
A supernatural thriller from 'America's most popular suspense novelist' (Rolling Stone): his most chilling, gripping and original novel to date. The Face. He's Hollywood's most dazzling star. His flawless countenance inspires the worship of millions, and fires the hatred of one twisted soul. In the days before Christmas, this warped and dangerous star-hater has sent six very sinister messages to the Face, promising the opposite of a nice surprise for the festive season. The Face's security chief Ethan Truman, ex-LAPD, tracks down the messenger but not the source of the threat. Worse, Ethan doesn't know that the Face's ten-year-old son Fric, home alone most of the time except for the staff, is receiving calls from a pervert who says he's Moloch, devourer of children. Convinced he's next on the menu, Fric prepares a hiding place in the vast Bel Air mansion. This won't keep him safe from the unimaginable evil that's coming to get him, but it will take him beyond Ethan's protection when hell is unleashed. But Ethan is all that stands in the way of a ruthless killer -- and forces no one can understand, or control. With the truth as thin as celluloid, Ethan will face the secrets of his own tragic past and the unmistakable premonition of his own impending violent death as he races against time to solve the macabre riddles of a modern-day beast.
