The Treehouse – BBC Radio 4 Broadcast
Five part thriller set in Ulverston.  The message: He deserved it, scrawled across a woodland treehouse where a teenager fell to his death twenty years before causes panic among his remaining friends.

   "Radio 4 can be relied upon to offer up regular crime thrillers - and they don't get more 
   psychological in tone than The Treehouse.  All the things I loved about Broadchurch are 
   here in spades. There's the setting in a tight-knit community (in this case a market town 
   in Cumbria).  Then come the gradual, teasing reveals of possible motivation.  But best of 
   all is a cast of characters any one of whom could prove to be the killer."  
      Jane Anderson, Radio Times Pick Of The Week
