9780062262455 From the award-winning author of Hide Me Among the Graves, Last Call, Declare, and Three Days to Never, a phantasmagoric, thrilling, mind-bending tale of speculative fiction in which one man must uncover occult secrets of 1920s Hollywood to save his family. In the wake of their Aunt Amityâ€™s suicide, Scott and Madeline Madden are summoned to Caveat, the eerie, decaying mansion in the Hollywood hills in which they were raised. But their decadent and reclusive cousins, the malicious wheelchair-bound Claimayne and his sister, Ariel, do not welcome Scott and Madelineâ€™s return to the childhood home they once shared. While Scott desperately wants to go back to their shabby South-of-Sunset lives, he cannot pry his sister away from this haunted â€œHouse of Usher in the Hollywood Hillsâ€ that is a conduit for the supernatural. Decorated by bits salvaged from old hotels and movie sets, Caveat hides a dark family secret that stretches back to the golden days of Rudolph Valentino and the silent film stars. A collection of hypnotic eight-limbed abstract images inked on paper allows the Maddens to briefly fragment and flatten timeâ€”to transport themselves into the past and future in visions that are both puzzling and terrifying. Though their cousins know little about these ancient â€œspidersâ€ which provoke unpredictable temporal dislocations, Ariel and Claimayne have been using for yearsâ€”an addiction that has brought Claimayne to the brink of selfish destruction. As Madeline falls more completely under Caveatâ€™s spell, Scott discovers that to protect her, he must use the perilous spiders himself. But will he unravel the mystery of the Madden familyâ€™s past and finally free them. . . or be pulled deeper into their deadly web?
