shutter island

Set in 1954 in America, Shutter Island is a thriller novel by bestselling writer Dennis Lehane, which sees a US Federal Marshall Teddy Daniels and his partner Chuck Aule being sent to a hospital for the criminally insane to find an escaped killer.

Made into a film in 2010, directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Shutter Island is widely considered to be one of the best crime novels of the past decade.

Full of suspense and frighteningly gripping, this isn't the kind of novel you'll want to read when you're home alone.
