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.

Jak się okazuje S. King, sprawdza się także w zagadkach kryminalnych, nic tylko pogratulować! Dobra robota, ...
This Book was not one of his remarkable works.I was quite disappointed of a book, of which I thought had all the right requirements for one of the better pulp/mystery fictions.And while it wasn't that bad, I felt let down by King.
