"The terror is relentless" (Publishers Weekly) in Stephen King's #1 national bestseller about a little mining town, Desperation, that many will enter on their way to somewhere else. But getting out is not easy as it would seem...Located off a desolate stretch of Interstate 50, Desperation, Nevada, has few connections with the rest of the world. It is a place, though, where the seams between worlds are thin. And it is a place where several travelers are abducted by Collie Entragian, the maniacal police officer of Desperation. Entragian uses various ploys for the abductions, from an arrest for drug possession to "rescuing" a family from a nonexistent gunman. There's something very wrong here, all right, and Entragian is only the surface of it. The secrets embedded in Desperation's landscape, and the evil that infects the town like some viral hot zone, are both awesome and terrifying. But as one of the travelers, young David Carver, seems to know--though it scares him nearly to death to realize it--so are the forces summoned to combat them. "Stephen King's knack for turning the stray junk of pop culture into sick, darkly engrossing thrills has rarely been this much in evidence as in Desperation" (Salon).

I have read this book a few times as well. Not one of the best but a good read. Its quite long but it keeps your interest. the regulators is a good book to follow with this one or the precede it as well.
its about a couple on their way somewhere and they are stopped by a small town cop and taken to the town, a mining town and the trouble ensues from there. Quite graphic descriptions of the killings (of course there are killings, this is stephen king!) and such but a good read.
