In a masterful departure from the Boston-based hard-boiled mysteries, bestselling author Dennis Lehane offers an atmospheric psychological thriller set in a 1950s asylum for the criminally insane. The year is 1954. U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels and his new partner, Chuck Aule, have come to Shutter Island, home of Ashecliffe Hospital for the Criminally Insane, to investigate the disappearance of a patient. Nothing at Ashecliffe is what it seems and Teddy soon begins to doubt everything: his memory, his partner, even his own sanity. DVD just released: http://www.shutterisland.com/#/home
From the Publisher:
U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels and his partner, Chuck Aule, come to Shutter Island's Ashcliffe Hospital in search of an escaped mental patient, but Ashcliffe's sinister patient treatments propel them to the brink of insanity.
Annotation:
The year is 1954 and the government keeps its most dangerous and disturbed criminals locked away in a hospital-prison on the remote Shutter Island. When one detainee escapes from Ashecliffe Hospital, Federal Marshals Teddy Daniels and Chuck Aule receive the assignment to go and track down the maniac. But when a horrible storm hits the island, everything becomes much more complicated, much more frightening, and much more dangerous. Daniels has enough skeletons in his closet that soon he is questioning his own sanity, and SHUTTER ISLAND throbs with the paranoia of tenuous sanity.
Author Bio
Dennis Lehane
A native of Dorchester, Massachusetts, a neighborhood of Boston--the city that was the muse for much of his oeuvre--Dennis Lehane was born to Irish immigrant parents in 1965. Before publishing his first novel in 1994, A DRINK BEFORE THE WAR, Lehane held many odd jobs (including as a limo driver, a waiter, and a counselor for abused and mentally handicapped kids) and attended Eckerd College. His debut novel introduced a pair of private investigator heroes who would tether his subsequent four novels and help him establish his name: Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro. The Kenzie-Gennaro novel GONE, BABY, GONE was adapted for the screen in 2007, although Lehane's Hollywood career began in 2003 with the critically acclaimed adaptation starting Sean Penn of his 2001 novel, MYSTIC RIVER. A sophisticated and powerful novel that explores the gritty streets of Boston's roughest neighborhoods and the organized crime families that dominate that world, MYSTIC RIVER launched Lehane's career to another level, and he followed it up in fine form with works like the psychological suspense novel SHUTTER ISLAND and the historical drama THE GIVEN DAY. In 2010 Lehane returned to his classic characters with another Kenzie-Gennaro story in MOONLIGHT MILE. Lehane has also written for the stage (CORONADO) and was a contributing writer for several episodes of the television program, THE WIRE. Lehane still resides in Boston, with his second wife.
