This story is spellbinding. I couldn't put it down and the ending just "blew me away!" It's a well-plotted, intricate mystery about a missing inmate from a facility for the criminally insane. Shutter Island houses this facility, and there is no way off the island except by a well-guarded ferry. So, where did this person go? Added to this mystery, is the fact that the roster shows 67 inmates, yet this missing person would change the census to 68. Is there really a missing inmate or not? The chief psychiatrist insists there is 67 inmates, but he seems to be a secretive, sinister individual. Who is lying and who is not? That is for the main character, a federal marshall, to discover! Add to this mix a pending hurricane and you will be in for the ride of your life! This book delivers! The movie will be out February 2010 - can't wait.
