Book 5 of 52 -- Dennis Lehane's Shutter Island
Dennis Lehane's prose is very well paced; secrets behind every corner.
Plot twists abound, but I can't say the whole book surprised me because I thought of just about every scenario Marshals Daniels and Aule could get into.
At first I thought the premise of two US Marshals looking for an insane, escaped murderess on an island during a hurricane was a little to zany to work, but man, I'll tell you, the whole book is so well done!
And I was TOTALLY satisfied with the denouement.
The dialogue really grabs you.
It's funny at times, heartbreaking at others and completely true to life.
