When Teddy Daniels arrives on Shutter Island to investigate an escaped inmate from the maximum security prison for the mentally insane, he slowly begins to discover that there are questions that run deeper on the island than what happened to Rachael Solando.
I don’t want to reveal anything about the plot because the book is much better if you go into it without knowing what will happen next. But Lehane has managed to craft a book with one of the smartest and most exciting plots that I’ve read in a long time. I couldn’t wait to read each subsequent chapter and when I wasn’t reading I was trying to untangle the plot.
I’ve heard good things about the movie, but I definitely recommend reading the book first. I haven’t read anything else by Lehane, but that is something I plan on changing. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a thrilling story that will keep them on the edge of their seats.
