5.0 out of 5 stars Superb!, 2 July 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: A Place of Execution (Paperback)
This has got to be the best book I've read! I've never felt the desire to read detective or murder books, but this book was bought for me by a friend and without her, I would have never looked twice at the book or the author.
However, from the moment I began reading, I was hooked! The winning formula is created by the combinination of a missing girl, a very close-knit community that despises interference from strangers and a story that is set in the early 1960s during the time of the Moors Murders. The atmosphere of the 1960s and the investigation methods used by the police in that period is conveyed very vividly by the author and shows that she has carried out a thorough research before putting pen to paper. An atmosphere of mounting tension is created as the police try to gain new information, despite the hostility of the local folk of Scardale who seem to know more than they're letting on. The characters are all very believable and each one plays their part perfectly by building up feelings of apprehension mingled with great curiosity, giving the reader the urge to keep on reading until the truth is uncovered. By taking the mystery forward to present day, the author keeps the tension mounting and rewards the reader with a very satisfactory ending. Superb!
