Shutter Island is a best-selling novel by Dennis Lehane, published by Harper Collins in April 2003. A film adaptation was released in February 2010. Lehane has said he sought to write a novel that would be a homage to Gothic settings, B movies, and pulp. He described the novel as a hybrid of the works of the Brontë sisters and the 1956 film Invasion of the Body Snatchers. His intent was to write the main characters in a position where they would lack 20th century resources such as radio communications. He also structured the book to be more taut than his previous book, Mystic River. Lehane was inspired by the hospital and grounds on Long Island in Boston Harbor for the model of the hospital and island. Lehane had visited it in the Blizzard of 1978 as a child with his uncle and family.

Historia perturbadora. Una inteligente, peligrosa y violenta reclusa (paciente) escapa de un centro penitenciario para criminales con problemas psiquiátricos, sito en una isla de Boston. Deja un código que un federal intenta descifrar, donde se hace mención a la "Ley de los 4" y al "paciente 67". En la isla sólo hay 66 pacientes. El federal cree que el asesino de su mujer está recluso en esa isla y que tal vez sea el "paciente 67". También cree que allí se practican lobotomías y se experimenta con terapias radicales, administrando drogas y lavando el cerebro a los pacientes para crear soldados zombis asesinos. Códigos y anagramas. Mezcla de realidad y delirios de mentes enfermas. ¿El federal está cuerdo, tiene problemas mentales o le están drogando para que no cuente los experimentos que se hacen en la isla?
