Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dennis Lehane's masterpiece of mystery and suspense — brought to life for the first time as a graphic novel.

In 1954, U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels and his partner, Chuck Aule, are sent to Shutter Island to find a mass murderer who has escaped from Ashecliffe Hospital, a fortress-like federal institution for the criminally insane. As an intense hurricane bears relentlessly down on the island, the marshals are forced to piece together clues to a shocking puzzle hidden within Shutter Island, taking them on a dark, twisted journey, where paranoia assumes an air of cool rationality and the line between sanity and madness disappears....

Filled with his trademark grit, insight, and pathos, Shutter Island is vintage Dennis Lehane. Now adapted for the first time as a graphic novel by internationally renowned artist Christian De Metter, this riveting story brilliantly captures our capacity for depravity and deliverance.

Based on the acclaimed New York Times bestseller from Dennis Lehane (Mystic River; Gone, Baby, Gone), the gripping psychological thriller Shutter Island is now a full-color graphic novel.

Suzanne Oxford, November 4, 2012 (view all comments by Suzanne Oxford)
This is truly a mesmerizing story with psychological suspense. In 1954 US Marshall Teddy Daniels and Chuck Aule have come to Ashecliffe Hospital, Home for the Criminally Insane. Their mission is to find a missing patient and also to investigate who is murdering patients there. This seems to be a clear-cut case, but nothing is what it seems to be. As Teddy begins exploring the island, a hurricane creates massive destruction. As he digs deeper, darkness descends and sinister forces send his investigation spiraling out of control. From the depths of the prison, answers will come forth, none of which Teddy is willing to accept. The reader will be haunted by this journey into the world of paranoia, deception and mental illness. I highly recommend this novel as Lehane is a master of suspense.
