Based on the Book

I finally have a Based on the Book feature for you. The movie Shutter Island will be releasing soon, and we have the book written by Dennis LeHane (FIC LEH) available for checkout. From the looks of the trailer it promises to be quite a creepy thriller! It also looks like his movie has been adapted into a graphic novel as well (see the below playlist for an interview with Dennis
LaHane concerning his novels and their adaptations.)

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.

Here are a few videos concerning the movie and Dennis LaHane:
