Synopsis

In the middle of the Nevada desert stands the once proud mining town of Desperation - a harmless, non-descript little community that one may briefly notice on a drive through the vast, empty desert on the way to some distant vacation destination. But something evil has taken over Desperation - its name is Tak, and its mission is to eliminate anyone who gets close to stumbling upon its secret. While posing as Desperation cop Collie Entragian, Tak is able to catch his prey while surveying the nearly empty highway. Caught in his deceptive web are famous author Johnny Marinville, whose misdeeds from the past may come back to haunt him; Ralph & Ellie Carver and their son, David - whose faith may hold the key to bringing down Tak; and Mary Jackson who, with her husband, Peter, will discover a courage they never knew they had while battling the beast. Meanwhile, Johnny's aide, Steve Ames, and his traveling companion, Cynthia, find out for themselves the horror that has taken place in Desperation when they go in search of the author; and the town's veterinarian, Tom Billingsley, knows firsthand the secrets of Desperation. Everyone will soon discover that the unearthing of a long abandoned mine in Desperation awakened Tak, and his control over the desert's animals and insects make him even more invincible to the unlikely band of people who have found themselves forced to become reluctant her s, as they battle to bring down the beast and save themselves in the process
