The year is 1954. U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels and his new ­partner, Chuck Aule, have come to Shutter Island, home of Ashecliffe Hospital for the Criminally Insane, to investigate the disappearance of a patient. Multiple-murderess Rachel Solando is loose somewhere on this barren island, despite having been kept in a locked cell under constant surveillance. 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 made in the cause of a covert shadow war. No one is going to escape Shutter Island unscathed, because nothing at Ashecliffe Hospital is remotely what it seems.

If I read over a hundred pages the story should start to become interesting, but what happened here?

Gripping and confusing...but a thriller nonetheless. I kept thinking as I read: Oh no, they will never let the policeman off that island. :)

I enjoyed the characters and the story, but I am confused about the ending...was it a constant dream on Teddy's part as an inmate and they allowed him to believe he was a marshal to try to help him forget?

The ending really makes you think.
