Wrong Place Wrong Time (Compact Disc)
In Wrong Place, Wrong Time, a mother witnesses her son commit a murder within the first few pages of this ambitious thriller, and then begins a journey of waking up each morning one day earlier in the past. Moving back in time as we move forward into the plot was an ingenious and effective way of putting the reader into the disorientation and confusion of the main character’s frame of mind. Think “Groundhog Day” meets “Russian Doll” meets “Happy Valley”. This book was a fun and captivating read, staying with me for days after I finished it. I stayed up way past my bedtime to finish it, racing through the pages at a pace that matched the racing of my heart, the way the plot raced to its mind-bending conclusion. If you want your thriller with a side of twists, then check this one out: twist after twist after twist. And even when I thought we were done, the book ended and every twist wrung out of this delicious thriller, the author had me gasping in shock and surprise as the final page ran out.— Molly
