A Greek tragedy in modern England, A Place of Execution is a taut psychological thriller that explores, exposes and explodes the border between reality and illusion in a multi-layered narrative that turns expectations on their head and reminds us that what we know is what we do not know.

One of the best books I have ever read or listened to. I found myself simultaneously wanting to listen to the whole thing in one sitting and rationing the story because it was so good. I had seen the 1st half of the miniseries and decided to read the book before seeing the 2nd half because I was so drawn into the story. I knew that there would be a plot twist, but I never quite guessed the ending. It kept me on my toes and interested the whole time. I immediately downloaded another Val McDermid book. I hope it is half as good!

Would you listen to A Place of Execution again? Why?
Yes. The story line was great. Some of the best writing I found, since I started reading Reginald Hill. Paddy Glynn was a very good narrator.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
It definitely kept me guessing and I was guessing a lot. I listen while I work in the service industry & It kept me company.
Which scene was your favorite?
It wasn't a scene as much as the journey through multiple scenes.
