Desperation - Stephen King
Welcome to Desperation. A lace beyond your wildest imaginings. Where the unbelievable can become reality . . .
Desperation: a small town in the middle of the Nevada desert. It looks hauntingly familiar with its signs to the Desperation Coffee Shop and Video Spot. Just off the loneliest highway in America, it should be a refuge wasteland. But there's something missing. The once thriving copper mining town now seems eerily empty. Almost abandoned. Except for a few desert animals - snake, coyote, buzzard. And of course the local cop patrolling the wilderness road - Desperation's unique regulator.
Headed down Highway 50 are travellers who are never going to reach their destinations. Like the Jacksons, a young professor and his wife going home to New York City; the Carvers, a Wentworth, Ohio family bound for a vacation in Lake Tahoe; and Johnny Marinville, the once famous writer who's getting back on the road with a new book, 'Travels with Harley'.
The secrets embedded in Desperation's landscape are as awesome as the forces summoned to encounter them. When they are unleashed, a terrifying transformation takes place and the wayfarers will begin to discover the true meaning of the word Desperation . . .
In the tradition of The Stand, Desperation is an apocalyptic drama of God and evil, madness and revelation in which the master of horror and suspense tempts you into his literary lion's den. And holds you willingly behind bars.
