The Colorado Kid by Stephen King

This week for the Fiction Friday feature, I am reviewing the crime mystery novel, The Colorado Kid by Stephen King. This book was published in October 2005 by Hard Case Crime and has a page count of 184 pages. The audiobook is read by Jeffrey DeMunn and is 3 hours & 28 minutes in length. The following overview is provided from the B&N page: 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…?

This is everything that I have come to expect from a King novel that is character-driven. I love the character development. It is beautifully written, it is just one of those King novels that are not my vibe. I am going to recommend that everyone gives this one a whirl because you never know with King.

I give this book 3 out of 5 stars.

Tomorrow for the Missing Person Saturday feature, I am highlighting the missing person’s case of Briana Nikki Conklin. Next week for the Fiction Friday feature, I am reviewing the young adult fantasy novel, Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo. Until then keep reading on; Nerd out!
