Book Review: Shutter Island

Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane

Teddy Daniels has come to Shutter Island to find escaped murderer Rachel Solando. Shutter Island houses a hospital for the criminally insane. There the doctors hope to help the violent and deranged, or do they?

Teddy soon suspects that something nefarious is going on. Is the staff lying to him? Why are the patients so fearful? How did Rachel Solando escape from a locked room? Is there anyone he can trust? Will he be allowed to leave?

This is a very good suspense novel. I guessed the twist early on but it was a wonderful read getting to the end.

Best Line:
If you’re not crazy but people have told the world you are, then all your protests to the contrary underscore their point.”
