Val McDermid, A Place of Execution

7102552I had never read anything by Val McDermid before I happened to pick up a copy of A Place of Execution, and now, on the strength of this one book, she’s one of my favorite mystery/suspense novelists. The plot twist in A Place of Execution was beautifully executed, and I loved the characters in the small English village who have to cope with the disappearance and presumed murder of one of the village’s teenaged children. I kept thinking about this novel long after I’d finished it and about the question it poses of whether justice and the law are always the same thing.

(Read from April 7-April 8, 2010)
