Synopsis:
In a masterful departure from the Boston-based hard-boiled mysteries he's known for, New York Times bestselling author Lehane (Mystic River) offers an atmospheric psychological thriller set in a 1950s asylum for the criminally insane. In 1954, U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels and his new partner, Chuck Aule, have come to Shutter Island, home of Ashecliffe Hospital, to investigate the disappearance of a murderer, Rachel Solando, loose somewhere on the remote and barren island. As a killer hurricane bears relentlessly down on them, a strange case takes on even darker, more sinister shades with hints of radical experimentation, horrifying surgeries, and lethal countermoves. Nothing is what it seems and Teddy begins to doubt everything his memory, his partner, even his own sanity. Description in Spanish: Verano de 1954.
