Latest 5***** reviews for Wrong Place Wrong Time

Wrong Place Wrong Time

"Best book I've read in a while! From the closely in-depth scenarios throughout this fantastic read, I knew it would become an instant favorite, just like this author already has. This book produces a variety of emotions, ending on a note of timely relief. Highly recommended!"

"I read the book in a day, as I couldn’t put it down. I won’t give too much away about the story, but it’s the first time I’ve looked up an author after finishing their book. I had a few outstanding questions and I was also really keen to see what David looked like as you build up a mental picture in your mind :-)… I don’t know if there were photos in the paper copy but there wasn’t on the e-version. David has a rogueish loveable charm, which came across brilliantly… I’ve always been attracted to that type of personality and sense of humour, so it was right up my street! It’s a story about a normal ‘geezer’ I won’t forget in a hurry. I expect (like me) most of the girls reading it will only wish they had been in Marbella at the same time as him!"

"It was unsettling, the knowledge that a split second decision can completely change the course of someone's life........"
This was certainly a statement that represented David P. Perlmutter's true life account in "Wrong Place Wrong Time". So many wrongly made split second decisions that impacted on the rest of his life, especially when in the wrong place at the wrong time!!
This book is brilliant and I thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish, I would highly recommend you try and read this in one sitting as it's very addictive.
All the way through this compelling read you feel you are with David every step of the way - from his everyday job in an estate agency to the unfortunate events that followed - feeling all his emotions from fear and guilt to shame and relief. There was so much build up of anticipation throughout, the fear and terror was palpable. As a parent of three teenage sons I'm now going to be dreading them taking their first holiday abroad with their mates!
Lots of varied characters make up this story some nice some not so nice, I particularly liked 'Son of Elvis' - what a great character he was. The harrowing account of the filthy, dark and dank police cells were very descriptive and I can't imagine the true horror David went through during those days with only orange peel to keep him company!
"Wrong Place Wrong Time" is a very exciting book with some cliffhanger moments leaving you wondering what will happen next and at times screaming at him 'don't do it!'
I would highly recommend you put this book on your to read list but perhaps best not read if you're on holiday in Spain......."

"I don't normally read books like this but I am so glad I did. I could not put it down and I know that that line has been said so many times before but it is true. Again, this has been said over and over again but this story would make for a brilliant movie. I can see why this book has so many five star reviews and in my opinion, it deserves every one of them. Well done David! After everything you've been through you deserve a huge amount of credit for surviving to tell your tale."

"Fantastic book, couldn't put it down. I need a follow up though....still intrigued. As they say "leave them wanting more." Loved it thanks."

"The book drew me in from the first page, 'how could all this happen to an innocent member of the public'? It's an amazing story of one mans fight for freedom and the truth, that had me wanting to read on and on until its final conclusion.
Well written and an incredible read Hi journey had me unbelieving but knowing it was true and could happen to you
Really enjoy this book."

"From the start of the book I was gripped. It takes a special kind of book for me to not keep putting down and then pick back up as and when. I only put this book down once...and that was to get off the plane! This book took me on a roller coaster of emotions and there were moments that I really wasn't expecting! It was so well written and described that you can visualise every place, every room, every Street...even feel the warmth of the weather!"

From Auckland and Papatoetoe to National Park on North Island, across Cook Strait to South Island and on down to Christchurch, they pursue both the killer and their honeymoon.

"5***** I have read each book in the CJ Washburn series and each one is better than the other. Newly weds CJ and Stella are on their honeymoon in New Zealand but can't seem to escape murder and bad guys. A shocking murder occurred and the local police want to write it off as a home invasion. A distraught grandfather begs CJ and Stella to investigate, so how could this refuse?

As well as the action, I enjoyed the local color and characters in this novel. Looking forward to the next book in the series, that is if CJ and Stella decide to continue taking on risky cases. This one almost ended in disaster."

SNOW: Stories of Forbidden Love by Kelly Anne Blount

5* review for Stories of Forbidden Love

“Snow” is a collection of sixteen short stories by different authors. The theme is about forbidden love, and each story takes place in a cabin in the snow. That might seem to box in what can be written, but there is a great deal of variety in the stories, and a little something for everyone. Forbidden love is complicated and can have unexpected or even dangerous consequences. The story “Whiteout”, by Sarah Benson, starts with a frightening mystery where everyone is a suspect, and yet relationships and love make the difference in the end. As we learn about and identify with the characters in these stories, we learn about choices and consequences – and we come to learn about ourselves as well. I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of this book, then I purchased it to have on my smart phone."

SNOW: Stories of Forbidden Love

Before The Devil Knows You're Dead by Owen Mullen

An explosive new crime thriller from a best-selling author

Charlie’s Back!
Gavin Law was a whistleblower.
Now he’s missing.
Just another case for Glasgow PI, Charlie Cameron, until he discovers there is more to Law and his disappearance than anyone imagined.
Wallace Maitland, the surgeon responsible for leaving a woman brain-damaged may have abandoned his sacred oath and become a killer. Did the hospital which refused to accept responsibility for the tragedy have Law silenced permanently? Or, with his wife little more than a vegetable, has David Cooper, believing he has been betrayed yet again, taken justice into his own hands?
Charlie comes to realise the world of medicine can be a dangerous place.
Across the city, East End gangster, Sean Rafferty is preparing to exploit the already corrupt city council in a multi-million pound leisure development known as Riverside. The project will be good for Glasgow. But not everybody is keen to work with Rafferty.  
With more than money at stake, Sean will do anything to get his way. His motto, borrowed from his old man, is simple. Never take a no from somebody who can give you a yes.
If that means murder, then so be it.
Charlie has crossed Rafferty’s path before and lived to tell the tale.
He may not be so lucky a second time.
 What the readers are saying:
'An exciting new voice in Glasgow's crime fiction genre - it will have you hooked from page one!'
Lorraine Patrick
Westender Magazine
I have a very pleasurable problem with Owen Mullen's books - after I have finished reading them, I am spoilt for anything else until I come down off my 'Charlie high'. 
Goodreads Top 100 Reviewer
This is a cracking read, fast-paced and well plotted. More please!

                                          Before The Devil Knows You're Dead (PI Charlie Cameron Book 3)

5* review "I have always been a Charlie Cameron fan, I think Owen Mullen writes a wonderful brand of modern detective noir fiction. In the characters of Charlie and his sidekick Patrick you have interesting and well developed characters, who still have shades of grey within them. When you read one of Owen's books you expect a beautifully written novel with plenty of twists and turns and one that really brings the city of Glasgow to the fore. However this New work from Owen takes all of these concepts to the Max. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it's one of those devour in one sitting kind of novels. The story develops well you could read this as a standalone, but for Charlie fans the novel continues to give us more information about all the characters we've grown to love. Owen Mullen has always been a 5* read for me and this new book is no exception."

Ghost Girl by Stephen Hazlett

Ghost Girl

A novella telling the bittersweet tale of a May-December romance between a man with a hidden tragedy in his past and the young Ghost Girl of a chance encounter.

5* Both achingly sensual and hauntingly melancholy, Ghost Girl, by author Stephen Hazlett, is a story to savor. The winsome Maddy... is she or is she not pursuing Joe? Could Joe's doubts alone undermine all that is possible in this May-December romance? A truly gorgeous story, and I loved being a part of the world the author created.

Dance of Desolation by Jenna Whittaker

Dance of Desolation

Shren has been locked in his own mansion’s cellar for seven years before one day, he finds the door unlocked, and his house—once filled with parties that his captors, his traitorous servants, threw—silent and empty.

Upon closer inspection, Shren finds that his home has only one difference from the days before his imprisonment—a painting gracing one of the walls, a painting of a man with eyes bleeding pitch black. A magicworker has been in his home.

Shren leaves, seeking to escape the wrath of the magicworker, should they return. It is then that he discovers their origin, that they are far more insidious and dangerous than he’d ever imagined, and he is inexorably drawn into a journey to stop the magicworkers from taking and corrupting his people as they did in the land they were created.

Voices from the Bayou by DeLisa Brown

Voices from the Bayou: Baton Rouge Students Confront Racism, Police Brutality, and a Historic Flood

Voices from the Bayou: Baton Rouge Students Confront Racism, Police Brutality, and a Historic Flood!

When Professor Clarence Nero and his teaching colleagues walked into their classrooms for the first time after the tumultuous summer of 2016—a summer that in Baton Rouge had seen the murders of Alton Sterling and innocent police officers as well as a vast and historic flood—they had no idea what to expect from students. This wasn’t any ordinary semester at Baton Rouge Community College. Many enrolled students had lost their homes due to flooding; most were still reeling from the shootings and the subsequent protests and riots that rocked the capital city. There were students who had been traumatized in ways that defied simple explanations. 

Not only did Professor Nero understand that they were pain—he had lived with and through the same hellish nightmare that summer—he determined to let them give expression to their experiences and reactions. Having seen this type of racial tension fuel students’ creativity in the film Freedom Writers, based on actual classroom experiences of Erin Gruwell, Professor Nero showed the movie to students in his English classes. The result was an instant connection: the diverse women and men he was teaching identified with the students in Ms. Gruwell’s class who had shared stories of frustration and pain growing up in racially hostile, violent communities in South Central Los Angeles.

Before long, students in Professor Nero’s classes were sharing their own stories, too, writing narratives and engaging in intense conversations in the classroom around race in south Louisiana. The idea caught on like wildfire around the college; other professors similarly challenged their students, and the school’s Creative Writing Club members likewise joined in the effort. Students who had begun the semester in varying states of distress were writing powerful and unforgettable accounts of their shared experiences coming of age in the South. Thus, Voices from the Bayou was born: a collection of heartwarming and heartbreaking narratives told by college students who bravely put it all on the line during a time when our country is most divided, after a contentious presidential election. Their courageous stories of dealing with racism, the police, and the flood in Baton Rouge will leave an indelible impression, reminding readers that our young people are ever watching and their voices must be heard and studied for peace and humanity’s survival.

Manumission by E. R. Harding


In a not-too-distant future, where wealth is measured by credits and almost all people are surveyed and tracked with barcodes, the Metaform Corporation is one of the wealthiest, most talked about and controversial companies in existence. To save the vulnerable from death and preserve the human race, the Metaform mainframe can store a person's consciousness for an infinite amount of time and download it into a new, upgraded bio-frame - potentially meaning that that oh-so-illusive human ambition, immortality, has been reached once and for all.

Of course, with an insurmountable amount of credits, this ambition can be reached with little to no wait-time. Without the funds, being stored in cyber-space indefinitely is a very real possibility.
Cults, terrorists and religious groups protest the Metaform constantly, and raids and attacks are a very real threat. When Gabriel and Errik hatch a plot to take down the Metaform from within its own mainframe, things start to go awry and they learn more about the Metaform, its directors and some of its inhabitants, than they ever expected...
