Description


In the year 1954, U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels and his new partner, Chuck Aule, come to Shutter Island, home of Ashecliffe Hospital for the Criminally Insane, to investigate an unexplained disappearance. Multiple murderess Rachel Solando is loose somewhere on this barren island, despite having been kept under constant surveillance in a locked, guarded cell. As a killer hurricane bears relentlessly down on the island, hints of radical experimentation and covert government machinations add darker, more sinister shades to an already bizarre case. Because nothing at Ashecliffe Hospital is remotely what it seems.

Praise For…


“The ride this novel provides is as good as entertainment gets.”
-Miami Herald

“Combines the claustrophobia of . . . Agatha Christie . . . with the creepiness of a good Stephen King yarn. . . . Good luck putting this one down.
-San Francisco Chronicle Book Review

“Startlingly original…instantly cinematic… unfolds with increasing urgency until it delivers a visceral shock in its final moments.”
-New York Times

“There is no mystery…about how good this book is; like Mystic River, it’s a tour de force.”
-Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“A lollapalooza of a corkscrew thriller…sure to be the most talked–about thriller of the year.”
-Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Nightmarish…it’s not a book to start before bedtime. Even if you finish before dawn, Shutter Island will trouble your sleep.”
-Orlando Sentinel

“Fasten your seat belts for a bumpy, breakneck ride…utterly absorbing… is an express train with no local stops…engrossing.”
-Boston Globe
