Dennis Lehane - Shutter Island

I heard of this through the promotion of the film with The reading Agency. It looked very intriging so I thought I would rad the book first.
The book is an amazing psychological thriller. Two US marshall arrive on an island in the 1950's . This island is home to some of the most dangerous and psychotic prisoners in the US. One has escaped. Then a hurricane blows in, cutting the island off and reaping devastation to the complex. In a twisted and and complex plot the reader comes to question everything they have read, assumed and believe to be reality. A stunning book, with a jaw dropping conclusion.
This would make a superb reading group book, there is just so much that can be discussed!!
Here is a link to the film trailer!
