Publisher Description

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.
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 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 surprising tale that explores the nature of mystery itself...

The Colorado Kid

The thing that always makes me salivate when I see anything new (or something I missed previously) from Stephen King are his characters. The way you feel they are people you know. And, as always in a Stephen King novel, hope they survive or get their comeuppance depending on the character. This story does not disappoint in that regard. I wanted to be Stephanie and have the regard of those two eccentric gentlemen. The mystery in the story is very intriguing and I find myself contemplating my own scenarios of how to resolve it these many days later. Do I always need Mr. King to do it for me? As he states on his afterward, life doesn't always end so tidy, but it does always end.

The Colorado Kid

Woulda loved a finely crafted ending. King always has the best endings and endings of his caliber are what most great writers are missing. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and characters. I would buy The Colorado Kid and read it again! King brings me into the story and that's what I love about his works.

Makes You Think

The story is unfinished yet I still feel satisfied. That is why I read Stephen King.
