Stephen King is a master of the horror story but in The Colorado Kid he transfers his skills to the mystery field.
In a small town newspaper office there is a discussion between the two senior reporters and the young reporter who has been in town for a few months only. They talk to her about the mystery of the dead man found on the beach 25 years earlier without identification.
The interesting part of the book is that there is no solution to the mystery, there doesn't need to be one, the story is the discussion between the three reporters and the background of small town life. It is the little pieces of advice that the elder reporters give to the young reporter that adds to the book greatly.
It is a quick read, maybe only 175 pages with some full page art thrown in, took me 2 sittings to get through and I enjoyed the book.
