Based on the novel by award-winning author Val McDermid, PLACE OF EXECUTION is a taut psychological thriller that explores, exposes and explodes the borderline between reality and illusion in a multi-layered narrative that turns expectations on their heads. Journalist Catherine Heathcote is making a documentary about schoolgirl Alison Carter, who vanished from a remote Northumberland village in 1963, sparking a major police hunt and making a hero of investigating offi cer DI George Bennett. When George withdraws his co-operation at the last minute, Catherine is devastated and sets off for Scardale to demand an explanation, accompanied by her rebellious teenage daughter Sasha. But what she uncovers there not only turns the Alison Carter case upside down - it rocks the very foundations of Catherine' s own life.
