Book Description

Publication Date: October 4, 2005
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.But 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 surprising tale that explores the nature of mystery itself…

Review –

This was the third  time I’ve listened to this audiobook and I enjoyed it more this time.  I decided to re-listen to it because of a new television series that began a month or so ago on SyFy called Haven. It’s said to be based on this particular book and I’m sorry I just don’t see it.  Yes, there are two old weathered looking newspaper men and there is an old unsolved mystery but that’s where it ends.  I like the book more but I do watch the tv series every Friday night because I love a good spooky mystery.

If you like Stephen King and haven’t read The Colorado Kid give it a try.  You won’t be sorry.
