Publisher's Summary

Summer, 1954. U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels comes 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; 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. The closer Teddy and Chuck get to the truth, the more elusive it becomes, and the more they begin to believe that they my never leave Shutter Island because someone is trying to drive them insane ...

One of the best I've read.

There isn't too much that I could write about this story without ruining the ending for readers. You just have to take my word that this is a very very good psycological thiller. You will not regret purchasing this one. I was completely thrown off. Good till the very end.
