A different kind of Stephen King novel: The Colorado Kid
I love the older Stephen King books like Cujo and the ones that have less of a "supernatural" aspect. Looks like I am in for a treat as he will release The Colorado Kid for Hard Case Crime. The novel tells the story of two veteran newspapermen and their investigation into the mysterious death of a man on an island off the coast of Maine.
“Steve is an extraordinary writer, and as much a fan of classic paperback crime fiction as we are,” said Charles Ardai, Hard Case Crime’s editor. “We originally contacted him to see if he’d be willing to write a blurb for our line, and he decided that what he really wanted to do was write a book for us instead. We’re thrilled that he wanted to be part of Hard Case Crime and we’re very excited to get to introduce the world to the baffling mystery of The Colorado Kid.”
“This is an exciting line of books,” Stephen King commented, “and I'm delighted to be a part of it. Hard Case Crime presents good, clean, bare-knuckled storytelling, and even though The Colorado Kid is probably more bleu than outright noir, I think it has some of those old-fashioned kick-ass story-telling virtues. It ought to; this is where I started out, and I'm pleased to be back.”
