Salem's Lotby Stephen King
Synopses & Reviews
Stephen King's second novel, 'Salem's Lot, is the story of a mundane town under siege from the forces of darkness. Considered one of the most terrifying vampire novels ever written, it cunningly probes the shadows of the human heart — and the insular evils of small-town America.
Now a mini-series on TNT starring Rob Lowe (The West Wing), Donald Sutherland (The Score), and Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner).
"A super exorcism...tremendous." Kirkus Reviews
"Spine-tingling fiction at its best." Grand Rapids Press
"A novel of chilling, unspeakable evil." Chattanooga Times
This repackaged edition of one of King's early classics revolves around the town of Jerusalem's Lot, a town that knows darkness — the heavy silence of terrifying images dancing in and out of the shadows; the stark white faces, huge empty eyes, and long gnarled hands that reach out with lustful insistence; and the paralyzing fear of a hideous peril more dreadful than death.
In a classic tale of horror by Stephen King, a man returns to his hometown of Jerusalem's Lot, Maine, only to find it infested with vampires.
