Katie, no, the hanging scene isn’t in the book. In the book, since it’s all from Claire’s POV, you don’t see anything that happened to Jamie between the time he was captured until Claire finds him in the cell. All you know is that Jamie’s scheduled to hang and Claire has no idea how much time she has to find him. That’s what creates most of the tension; once BJR releases her, the reader doesn’t see Jamie again until after it’s all happened.
