Description

Dennis Lehane is a New York Times best-selling author who won a Shamus Award for his first novel. In Shutter Island, he weaves a dark and terrifying story of deception, manipulation, and murder. Ashecliffe Hospital for the Criminally Insane looms like a fortress on Shutter Island. As a hurricane swirls toward the hospital, a U.S. marshal arrives to track down an escaped patient-a murderess who may hold the key to what really goes on in the locked wards and operating rooms.

Professional reviews

"In 1993, Dr. Lester Sheehan begins a journal to remember "Teddy and his poor dead wife. . . and those twin terrors, Rachel Solando and Andrew Laeddis." With this narrative device in place, the story flashes back to 1954, to Shutter Island's Ashecliffe Hospital for the Criminally Insane. U.S. Marshall Teddy Daniels is called after a female inmate vanishes from a locked room. One difference between simply listening and having a listening experience is Tom Stechschulte. He doesn't merely perform characters; he channels them. Main characters, doctors, nurses, inmates, and orderlies have believable individual voices and personalities. Lehane twists a devastating hurricane, possible unethical experiments, and enough secrets to justify paranoia into a psychological thriller that works most of the time. Stechschulte's magic makes it work the rest. S.J.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine"
