Stephen King's second novel, Salem's Lot, is the story of a mundane town under siege from the forces of darkness.

Late that summer, Ben Mears returned to 'Salem's Lot, a small New England town, hoping to cast out his own devils. And found instead a new unspeakable horror.

A stranger with a secret as old as evil had also come to the Lot...

All would be changed forever: Susan, whose love for Ben could not protect her; Father Callahan, the bad priest who put his eroded faith to one last test; and Mark, a young boy who sees his fantasy world become reality and ironically proves the best equipped to handle the relentless nightmare.

Considered one of the most terrifying vampire novels ever written.
