Description

When Jen wakes up the next morning, there is Todd, not in jail, but eating breakfast like a regular day. They are here, tonight, together, even if they might part again tomorrow, like two passengers on two trains going in opposite directions. Devastated, she and her husband wait for answers at the police station after he is taken into custody. Then this British author decided to insert some snide political comments about the 2020 US election.

I actually listened to the audiobook on holiday and I couldn't wait to get back to it each time I had to stop it. A genre-defining masterpiece that turns everything you think you know about crime, family and memory on its head. Particularly as time passes, these people drift in and out of Jen’s life without making a real impression. If you enjoy a mystery, suspense and time travel story with a hints of “Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle” then you will love this. Even though I figured out what was going on long before it was revealed, the story was fast paced and kept me intrigued.On the one hand, the narrator is fabulous and does a wonderful job inflecting various voices for the differing characters; on the other, it made it more difficult to keep up with the jumping timeline and easier to zone out on the more repetitive parts. A deep-thinking, mind-bending novel that will keep you riveted, don’t make the mistake that I did and put it down prematurely. A brilliantly genre-bending, mind-twisting answer to the question, how far would you go to save your child? Initially I was not excited about this premise but then got into it and revelled in the new facts, and twists to the story I just didn’t see coming.

Todd’s victim has lost his life and so has Todd really - his promising future over before it’s begun. The author tells us that parenting is the most important gift that parents can bestow upon their children.

And she even tapped into some "telling" that evoked many emotions – especially during the scene with her dad. Going back though is totally freaky and poor Jen feels like Bill Murray in Groundhog Day apart from she doesn’t just relive the same day, but goes further and further into the past to uncover some shocking truths.

It’s the type of guilt that most parents carry as we need to earn a living to pay the bills yet we want to make the most of our children and it can be hard to find a happy medium. Checking for him through the window, she’s momentarily relieved when she sees him round the corner…until she sees someone she doesn’t recognize approaching him.

Wrong Place Wrong Time is a masterfully plotted and ingenious psychological thriller told in reverse. As Jen travels back further in time, and faster, the concern arises as to not only whether she’ll be able to prevent the crime but also as to the possibility that her life will simply continue rewinding until she’s never even been born. Ebooks fulfilled through Glose cannot be printed, downloaded as PDF, or read in other digital readers (like Kindle or Nook). It’s very well written, cleverly plotted, pitched perfectly so it just flows and in some ways it shouldn’t but it does, demonstrating real writing skill. Lucky for Jen, her best friend at work is friends with a renown physicist who specializes in this sort of “time travel”.

I then picked one from her backlist The Evidence Against You, which I also enjoyed though admittedly quite as much as How to Disappear.

But besides the few people like Daniel Craig where their eyes literally pierce you with their brightness, let’s just stop making it significant. This built a cloak of believability to the plot, which could have easily swerved into a territory that felt illogical or far-fetched. But after she spends a restless night tormented by the tragedy, she finds herself waking up the day before. Jen will find herself living in past increments of time trying to retrieve the causal factor of Todd's crime.
