Shutter Island Graphic Novel (Paperback)
Based on the acclaimed New York Times bestseller from Dennis Lehane (Mystic River; Gone, Baby, Gone), the gripping psychological thriller Shutter Island is now a full-color graphic novel. The tense and twisting story that inspired the blockbuster film directed by Academy Award-winner Martin Scorsese and starring Leonardo DiCaprio has been given a breathtaking new life by internationally renowned artist Christian De Metter. Shutter Island, the graphic novel, was an Official Selection at the 2009 Angouleme International Comics Festival, Europe's top comics exposition.
“The ride this novel provides is as good as entertainment gets.”
“Combines the claustrophobia of . . . Agatha Christie . . . with the creepiness of a good Stephen King yarn. . . . Good luck putting this one down.

-New York Times
“There is no mystery…about how good this book is; like Mystic River, it’s a tour de force.”

“Nightmarish…it’s not a book to start before bedtime. Even if you finish before dawn, Shutter Island will trouble your sleep.”
“Fasten your seat belts for a bumpy, breakneck ride…utterly absorbing… is an express train with no local stops…engrossing.”
