The Colorado Kid

Stephen King

ISBN 9781789091557

Stephen King’s bestselling unsolved mystery, The Colorado Kid – inspiration for the TV series Haven -- returns to bookstores for the first time in 10 years in an all-new illustrated edition.

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...

Reviews, News & Interviews:

King is one of those writers that is equally at ease writing a short tale as he is an epic. His writing is anything but sparse as his descriptions of Mooselook Island... effortlessly conjure gorgeous seascapes, white picket fenced streets and character affectations. Starburst

This little meditation is absolutely something that should be read by all crime and mystery fans. Stephen King is a master, and this is one of his most finely-wrought works. The Crime Review

A gentle mystery, one that explores the genre as well as small town life in a way that I found utterly beguiling. SciFi and Scary
As a Summer read, read whilst sat on a holiday beach perhaps, it s just the ticket. SFF World

I really enjoyed The Colorado Kid... The chapter illustrations are beautiful and I adore the old pulp fiction style. Tracey Drew Books

A captivating story that is full of spirit, a little gem of a thought-provoking book. The Tattooed Book Geek
