The Colorado Kid

Stephen King: The Colorado Kid (UK 2007)

From the Publisher:
On an island off the coast of Maine, a man is found dead. There's no identification on the body. Only the dogged work of a pair of local newspapermen and a graduate student in forensics turns up any clues, and it's more than a year before the man is identified.

But that's just the beginning of the mystery, because the more they learn about the man and the baffling circumstances of his death, the less they understand. Was it an impossible crime... or something even stranger?

In its first appearance (as a mass market paperback under the Hard Case Crime imprint), this rivetting story about the darkness at the heart of the unknown - and our compulsion to investigate the unexplained - split fans and critics alike... seemingly frustrating as many as it delighted. One thing is certain: there is no middle ground with The Colorado Kid. As the author says in his Afterword, "We always want to reach for the lights in the sky, and we always want to know where the Colorado Kid (the world is full of Colorado Kids) came from. Wanting may be better than knowing. I don't say that for sure; I only suggest it."

Stephen King: The Colorado Kid. With an Introduction by Charles Ardai. PS Publishing, ISBN: 9781905834013 (May, 2007), 179 p., £25.00.

The Colorado Kid

Stephen King: The Colorado Kid (USA 2005)

From the Publisher:
FIRST PUBLICATION ANYWHERE!
On an island off the coast of Maine, a man is found dead. There's no identification on the body. Only the dogged work of a pair of local newspapermen and a graduate student in forensics turns up any clues, and it's more than a year before the man is identified.

And that's just the beginning of the mystery. Because the more they learn about the man and the baffling circumstances of his death, the less they understand. Was it an impossible crime? Or something stranger still...?

No one but Stephen King could tell this story about the darkness at the heart of the unknown and our compulsion to investigate the unexplained. With echoes of Dashiell Hammett's The Maltese Falcon and the work of Graham Greene, one of the world's great storytellers presents a moving and surprising tale whose subject is nothing less than the nature of mystery itself...

Stephen King: The Colorado Kid. Hard Case Crime, ISBN: 0843955848 (October, 2005), 176 p., $5.99 .
