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.
