Welcome to Desperation.
Once a thriving copper mining town in the middle of the Nevada desert, Desperation is now eerily abandoned. It's the last place that travellers like the Carver family, bound for vacation, and writer Johnny Marinville, astride his Harley, would expect to be stopped and charged. But Desperation still has a local cop - a unique regulator who patrols the wilderness highway.
The secrets buried in Desperation are as terrifying as the forces summoned to encounter them. A terrifying transformation is taking place and the travellers will soon discover the true meaning of desperation . . .

The first half of the book (722 pages on iBooks) is horror and suspense - the second half is horror and adventure....because somehow you just know they're gonna make it.
It's a great read, all the more surprising because it's not one of his better known books. Would make a great movie too.
Great book. Stephen King is a very talented writer.
BTW it has been made into a movie.
