The True Story Behind ‘The Colorado Kid’
The book that caused the biggest controversy was The Colorado kid, mainly because from the master of ‘Carrie,’ ‘Christine,’ ‘Kujo,’ came what turned more into an Ellery Queen story. This, to many, is a marmite story. ‘ You love it or hate it.’
He was well dressed, had small feet, manicured nails, and wore a grey suit. He had no ID on him, nobody reported him as missing.
The police had no idea who he was? Where did he come from? or how did he get there?
Nobody remembered seeing him on the beach that day; he just turned up.
