Book 13 of 52 -- Dennis Lehane's Shutter Island

If you enjoy eerie suspense then you will like this book. It feels like a modern day Alfred Hitchcock. Very heavy on the suspense with tones of creepiness and deep mystery.

I was surprised to find out the BOOK is not filled with gore and blood. There is a big difference between eerie and slasher and Shutter Island, the book, was eerie. LEhane often writes really gritty stuff...

I don't want to write much about the storyline because it is a mystery and I wouldn't want to spoil the mystery for anyone. So all I am going to say is that if you enjoy a good mystery and like books that engage you as a reader, then this is a great choice.
