Riassunto: Stephanie McCann is a journalism student at University of Ohio. Her summer internship brings her to Moose-Lookit Island, ME where she tags along after Vince Teague and David Bowie--two salty newsmen who've been running The Weekly Islander together for forty years.
Over those decades, the old guys have seen it all. With Stephanie's help, they review a cold case involving "The Colorado Kid"--an anonymous tourist visiting the island who turned up dead in the Spring of 1980.
The Colorado Kid is classic King. He deftly weaves a charming and funny New England yarn featuring good old fashioned Island storytelling.
Dal retro di copertina: THE WORLD'S BEST-SELLING NOVELIST IS BACK... WITH AN ALL-NEW INVESTIGATION INTO THE UNKNOWN
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.
