Summer, 1954.
U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels has come to Shutter Island, home of Ashecliffe Hospital for the Criminally Insane. Along with his partner, Chuck Aule, he sets out to find an escaped patient, a murderess named Rachel Solando, as a hurricane bears down upon them.
But nothing at Ashecliffe Hospital is what it seems.
And neither is Teddy Daniels.

Is he there to find a missing patient? Or has he been sent to look into rumors of Ashecliffe’s radical approach to psychiatry? An approach that may include drug experimentation, hideous surgical trials, and lethal countermoves in the shadow war against Soviet brainwashing. . . .

Or is there another, more personal reason why he has come there?

As the investigation deepens, the questions only mount:
How has a barefoot woman escaped the island from a locked room?
Who is leaving clues in the form of cryptic codes?
Why is there no record of a patient committed there just one year before?
What really goes on in Ward C?
Why is an empty lighthouse surrounded by an electrified fence and armed guards?

The closer Teddy and Chuck get to the truth, the more elusive it becomes, and the more they begin to believe that they may never leave Shutter Island. Because someone is trying to drive them insane. . . .

"Shutter Island" is my first book of Dennis Lehane and despite that at the beginning of it I was like: “What the-hell is this guy trying to tell…”, I was completely astonished by its end.

Sort of the same feeling I got when the movie "The Usual Suspects" ended.

Big smile !!!

Many hardcore fans will surely be a bit disappointed with the line of the plot, which carries a different direction in term of Lehane’s more Noir PI inspired novels. But honestly, who care… be sure to read "Shutter Island" and be also sure, to keep in mind every little details because the sledgehammer that will hit at the end will hit you hard, very hard. And if you're not prepared you will have to call for help so you can close your mouth.

Mycket spännande psykologisk triller. Spännande hela tiden. Saknar tråkig mittdel som många andra böcker har.

Jag gillar handlingen, jag gillar karaktärerna och jag gillar att boken ger en aura över hela ön. Men det var lite för seg ibland, men den exploderade i slutet.
Tack vara filmen (som jag personligen tycker jag bättre än boken) så får den en femma!
