Publisher's Summary

Marshal Teddy Daniels has come to Shutter Island, home of Ashecliffe Hospital for the Criminally Insane, to find an escaped murderer named Rachel Solando.

As a killer hurricane bears down on the island, the investigation deepens, and the questions mount. How has a barefoot woman escaped from a locked room? Who is leaving them clues in the form of cryptic codes? And what really goes on in Ward C?

The closer Teddy gets to the truth, the more elusive it becomes. And the more he begins to believe that he may never leave Shutter Island. Because someone is trying to drive him insane....

    "Gripping and so well read"
    Where does Shutter Island rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    near the very top! this is one of those books that really does have it all, interesting story, very well written and impeccably read. It's set in an insane asylum which piqued my interest immediately (I find books about the mind so intriguing!) and as you would imagine...all is not as it seems. there are some fabulous twists that I certainly didn't see coming. It is terribly sad in places and can be quite unsettling, the ending is so so good!!!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Chuck... or was it? no spoilers, you'll have to listen to find out!


    Have you listened to any of Tom Stechschulte’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No I haven't but I fully intend to now.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes and no... I didn't want the book to end as it was so good but I was also desperate to get to the truth with Teddy!


    Any additional comments?

    JUST. GET. IT. You won't be disappointed!

    "Gripping dark thriller."
    What did you love best about Shutter Island?

    The complex characters, particularly Teddy. Haunted by myriad ghosts and has a thinly-veiled brutal nature.


    What other book might you compare Shutter Island to and why?

    The Magus by John Fowles. As with The Magus, in Shutter Island, reality is not as it appears.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Teddy sets fire to Dr Collies car. Disturbingly, I found this scene quite satisfying!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Definitely. I found Dolores interaction with the children shocking and macabre.


    Any additional comments?

    A thought-provoking novel.
