Headed down the highway are the Jacksons, on their way home to New York; the Carvers, a family on vacation and Johnny Marinville, a once-famous author.  They all encounter the little town of Desperation, which should be a refuge in the middle of the Nevada desert.  But the once thriving copper mining town is eerily empty.  Almost abandoned – except for the local cop patrolling the wilderness, guarding Desperation’s secrets, hidden in the landscape. When those secrets are unleashed, a terrifying transformation takes place and the travellers learn the true meaning of the word desperation…Cover art by Chris Moore.
