The Colorado Kid by Stephen King

Another short story from King one i thought I would read as I collect all his books and this would serve as a quick Stephen King hit. However I was sorely mistaken as this story had none of the usual charm or horror of a King book.
The story is a mystery about a man who was once found dead on the beach, who no one could identify and no one knew the circumstances of his being on the island.
Thats basically it, the book is the reader being taken through this event by a journalist who is recounting the event. The event is shrouded in mystery but never comes to any conclusion.
I know its only a short story but a very poor effort from King in my opinion.
