Who's who in Salem's Lot
Ben Mears is a tall dark haired man who the town appears to be very strange when he arrives. In a small town like Salem's Lot everyone talks. Not long after his arrival he begins to hangout with Sue Norton. This lead to a lot more talk in the town. He wasn't safe from any chatter among the folk. He didn't mind though. He liked Sue and he enjoyed staying at Eva's inn. Sue helped ben over come the troubles of his past, (the motorcycle incident, that killed his wife) and he was falling for her completely- until the town took a turn for the worst.
