Wrong Place Wrong Time

Wrong Place Wrong Time


It's every parent's nightmare.

Your happy, funny, innocent son commits a terrible crime: murdering a complete stranger.

You don't know who. You don't know why. You only know your teenage boy is in custody and his future lost.

That night you fall asleep in despair. Until you wake . . .

. . . and it is yesterday.

Every morning you wake up a day earlier, another day before the murder. Another chance to stop it.

Somewhere in the past lie the answers, and you don't have a choice but to find them . . .

Our Review

Wrong Place Wrong Time was a refreshing and exciting read. I stayed up until the early hours of the morning just to finish it. 

Wrong Place Wrong Time is a well-thought out, fast-paced book full of intelligence and heart. 

"Jen is glad of the clocks going back tonight. A gained hour, extra time to be spent waiting up for her son. 

Now that it is past Midnight, it is officailly the thirtieth of October. Almost Halloween. Jen tells herself that Todd is eighteen, her September baby now an adult who can do whatever he wants." 

It really is every parent's worst nightmare. Jen witnesses her happy, thoughtful boy murdering a complete stranger. What happened? Why did he do it? All these questions whir through her head and then she wakes up to find herself stuck in a kind of Groundhog Day. Jen is in a time loop, waking up a day earlier each time and maybe that is what she needs to prevent the murder. 

"It is the twenty-seventh of October. It is the day before the day before. 

Blood pounds in her forehead, hot and stretched, like somebody turned a heater on. She must be mad- she must be. The pumpkin isn't here because it hasn't yet been purchased by her. 

Apparently, it is Thursday, eight thirty in the morning." 

Wrong Time Wrong Place was a much about the relationship between a mother and her son as anything else. A fantastic answer to the question of whether nature or nurture plays more of a role in creating a child killer. 

This book is everything!
