Publisher's Summary

INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A REESE'S BOOK CLUB PICK

“It’s perfection, every word, every moment. A masterpiece . . . One of the best books I’ve ever read.” —Lisa Jewell, #1 New York Times bestselling author

New York Times bestselling author Gillian McAllister has created a thriller unlike any other in this endlessly clever, twisty story of a mother who must move backward through time to prevent tragedy from striking at the heart of her family.

Can you stop a murder after it’s already happened?

It is midnight on the morning of Halloween, and Jen anxiously waits up for her 18-year-old son, Todd, to return home. But worries about his broken curfew transform into something much more dangerous when Todd finally emerges from the darkness. As Jen watches through the window, she sees her funny, seemingly happy teenage son stab a total stranger.

She doesn’t know who the victim is, or why Todd has committed such a devastating act of violence. All she knows is that her life, and Todd’s, have been shattered.

After her son is taken into custody, Jen falls asleep in despair. But when she wakes up…it is yesterday. The murder has not happened yet—and there may be a chance to stop it. Each morning, when Jen wakes, she is further back in the past, first weeks, then years, before the murder. And Jen realizes that somewhere in the past lies the trigger for Todd’s terrible crime…and it is her mission to find it, and prevent it from taking place.

Both the story of a mother’s love and the sacrifices she will make for her child, and a thriller with a brilliant twist, Wrong Place Wrong Time is a one-of-a-kind novel that begs to be listened to in one sitting.

So incredibly unique

You can’t help but be sucked into the main character’s world. Helplessly confused, trying to figure out why this is happening, and what is needed to stop it. I really really enjoyed this book. Suspenseful, but real. Real in the way that makes you look back at your life and wonder if one thing was done differently, what all could it have changed for the course of your life.

Spectacular!

This was such a refreshing read. I couldn't put it down and I actually cheered aloud at the conclusion! This story qualifies as excellent under so many genres: mystery, thriller, sci-fi, fantasy, literature, and more. It is a mind bender and a fun puzzle.
As someone who also really enjoys physically reading books I must say that presented as an audio book makes the story even better because it draws you in even more. WELL DONE!
Enjoy! Enjoy! Enjoy!

loved it!


i wasnt sure where this story was going in the beginning, and I found it a little hard to follow, however the end really tied it together nicely. Now please someone make it into a movie! I feel it would adapt very well to the big screen. 9.5/10

Although at times it got confusing going back and forth, the story had me guessing until the very end. Great book and worth the credit!

Riveting

Loved this book… I listened to it as part of Reese Witherspoon’s book club recommendation and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The mystery and clues keep you thinking and doing it in reverse makes it much more exciting! I don’t think the story would be as good in a regular timeline and the voice actor was great!!
