Shutter Island

July 21, 2009

Shutter Island off Massachusett's coast is an army facility turned into a hospital for the criminally insane. This mystery, Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane, about two U.S. marshals investigating the disappearance of a patient is a psychological thriller, packed with twists and turns and one we couldn't put down. It will be released in October as a movie. But read the gripping novel first - you have plenty of time to read it this summer.
