    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. Is he there to find a missing patient? Or has he been sent to look into rumors of Ashecliffe's radical approach to psychiatry?

    Barry says: "Outstanding psychological thriller set in the 50s"
    "listened all night!!"
    Overall

    i am not a reader of thrillers or mysteries, and was reluctant to listen to this book, despite the praise of a good friend. i enjoyed this listen tremendously and stayed up far too late one night listening to the end. engaging story and great narration...

    Story

    Isabel Gillies had a wonderful life -- a handsome, intelligent, loving husband; two glorious toddlers; a beautiful house; the time and place to express all her ebullience and affection and optimism. Suddenly, that life was over. Her husband, Josiah, announced that he was leaving her and their two young sons.

    Bonnie Brody says: "Oh, So Quaint and Shallow"
    "its a great listen..."
    Overall

    this is a compelling listen...i'm listening whenever possible as this is a hard-to-put-down sort of book. despite some awkward pauses in the recording (a director was needed or the current one should have been fired), thumbs up to the author.

    Alone and un-tethered, feeling lost in the country he had come to regard as home, Hans stumbles upon the vibrant New York subculture of cricket, where he revisits his lost childhood and, thanks to a friendship with a charismatic and charming Trinidadian named Chuck Ramkissoon, begins to reconnect with his life and his adopted country. Ramkissoon, a Gatsby-like figure who is part idealist and part operator, introduces Hans to an "other" New York populated by immigrants and strivers of every race and nationality.

    "loved it..."
    Overall

    loved this book and the reading of it. i was hesitant about the novel given its subject matter - cricket - but enjoyed every moment of the story...
