About book: A Place Of Execution by Val McDermidMy dad (who reads two, maybe three books a week) told me that this was the best mystery he’d read in a long time. With an endorsement like that, who was I to argue? He tossed the book my way and in no time, I was hooked. Author McDermid takes this true life case and weaves her story into such a compelling tale of unanswered questions, piles of red herrings and an ending that will honestly knock the air out of even a seasoned mystery-lover. I couldn’t put it down. tPhillip Hawkin, the newly arrived Squire of Scardale, having married into the web of that particular village, was a man destined for destruction.
