Ben Mears has returned to Jerusalem's Lot in the hopes that living in an old mansion, long the subject of town lore, will help him cast out his own devils and provide inspiration for his new book. But when two young boys venture into the woods and only one comes out alive Mears begins to realize that there may be something sinister at work and that his hometown is under siege by forces of darkness far beyond his control.
"A Great Performance of an Excellent Story"
Salem's Lot es un pueblo tranquilo donde nunca pasa nada. O quizás esto son solo apariencias, pues lo cierto es que sí se están sucediendo diversos hechos misteriosos, incluso escalofriantes...Veinte años atrás, por una apuesta infantil, Ben Mears entró en la casa de los Marsten. Y lo que vio entonces aún recorre sus pesadillas.
A superb novel set in classic Stephen King territory - a small new England town about to be engulfed by terror. Turn off the television - in fact, why don't you turn off all the lights except for the one over your favourite chair? - and we'll talk about vampires here in the dim. I think I can make you believe in them. Stephen King, from the introduction. Salem's Lot is a small New England town with the usual quota of gossips, drinkers, weirdos and respectable folk.
