The story opens with Ben Mears attacking the priest Donald Callahan in a homeless shelter in a big city. They fall together from a high window into the street. In the hospital, Ben Mears tells his story and the reasons behind his fight with the priest to an orderly. Ben, a successful writer, returns to his hometown, Jerusalem's Lot (also known as 'Salem's Lot), intending to write a novel while he deals with the demons of his past. He tells Susan Norton (a waitress and former art student whom he has befriended), that as a child he accepted a dare to enter the house of Hubie Marsten. Local legend said that there was something wrong with the house and/or its owner, suggesting that he tortured and murdered children. The night he went into the house, Ben overheard something horrible — including Hubie begging for his life before committing suicide. Ben believes that he also heard Hubie Marsten's last victim crying for help, but Ben was too afraid to find or help him. Ben plans to rent the house to bring catharsis to himself and to gather material for his novel, but he discovers that it has recently been sold by Larry Crockett to a pair of antique dealers, Richard Straker and Kurt Barlow. Shortly thereafter, the dark secrets of the town's residents begin to emerge. Crockett is sexually abusing his teenage daughter Ruth. When she spends time with a cripple named Dud Rodgers whom Crockett employs, Crockett fires him. Eva Prunier, who runs the boarding house where Ben stays, played evil games with Hubie Marsten when they were teenagers. Charlie Rhodes, the school bus driver, is a bully who loves to torment the children he transports, forcing those he doesn't like to walk home. Soon after newcomers Richard Straker and his little-seen partner Kurt Barlow arrive, a local child named Ralphie Glick vanishes. His brother Danny then sickens and dies after being visited by Ralphie, who has now been turned into a vampire. Barlow meets Dud Rodgers one night and offers him a chance to be free of his physical disability, which he accepts. Barlow then vampirizes him. Laborer Mike Ryerson buries Danny, then also gets sick and dies. He returns from the grave (complete with autopsy scars) to tempt high school teacher Matt Burke, who repels him but suffers a heart attack. Ben's blossoming relationship with Susan causes jealousy with her old boyfriend Floyd Tibbits. However, Floyd is bitten by Dud Rodgers and slowly becomes a vampire himself. After starting a fight with Ben, Floyd and Ben spend the night in jail for causing an affray, and Floyd uses his new supernatural abilities to crawl through the ventilation shaft to Ben's cell to taunt him. Ben is persuaded by the mounting evidence that the town is plagued by vampirism. He and his allies, Dr. Jimmy Cody, Father Donald Callahan, and schoolboy Mark Petrie begin acting as vampire hunters, although they are horrified to discover that Susan Norton has now become a victim. Ben insists upon targeting Barlow in the hopes that Barlow's victims might be restored upon his destruction.
