But he succumbs to what will be a lifelong obsession with the mysterious Max Castle, a nearly forgotten genius of the silent screen who later became the greatest director of horror films, only to vanish in the 1940s, at the height of his talent.Now, 20 years later, as Jonathan seeks the truth behind Castles disappearance, the innocent entertainments of his youth—the sexy sirens, the screwball comedies, the high romance—take on a sinister appearance.

His tortured quest takes him from Hollywoods Poverty Row into the shadowy lore of ancient religious heresies.He encounters a cast of exotic characters, including Orson Welles and John Huston, who teach him that theres more to film than meets the eye, and journeys through the dark side of nostalgia, where the Three Stooges and Shirley Temple join company with an alien god whose purposes are anything but entertainment.
