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 . . .


I’ve been seeing so many glowing reviews of Wrong Place Wrong Time so my expectations were pretty high and I can happily confirm those expectations were totally and completely met! The entire concept was so clever and so fantastically well thought through that I was utterly glued to the pages. I really don’t want to give too much away because the unexpected twists add so much to the story but I don’t think I’ve ever read a book that involved time travel aspects so seamlessly and effortlessly. Gillian McAllister is a truly brilliant writer who manages to keep the reader engaged and immersed from start to finish. The characters are compelling and plot is smart and thrilling. I would recommend Wrong Place Wrong Time unequivocally to anyone!


I very kindly received a copy of the book from the publisher. My review is entirely my own honest opinion.

Buy the book:

Waterstones | Blackwell’s | Amazon
