Wrong Place Wrong Time: Can you stop a murder after it's already happened? THE SUNDAY TIMES THRILLER OF THE YEAR AND REESE’S BOOK CLUB PICK 2022
About this deal
My high score for this is because it was such a delightful surprise, being far more cerebral than I anticipated. In some ways, Jen is taking inspiration from him, who has been so good at lying that his secrets have been hidden in plain sight. If she had spent more time with him, shown more interest in his interests, done things differently, would he have still stabbed?
Before she could take it all in and make sense of what is happening , her son gets charged for murder. On par with the works of Blake Crouch or Michael Crichton, but with an emotional touch, this book was a overwhelmingly impressive work that, while keeping me in suspense, demonstrated the depth of a mother’s love (and which even made me cry). Other than the f-words, probably my next biggest problem with the book was the scene where Jen is looking through a window and catches a glimpse of a photograph. To do that she has to go far, far back in time, getting to the roots of her most important relationships. I did figure out part of the twist, but it may not be as obvious to those who are new to this genre.There is never a moment of doubt that the ending will satisfy, and the story evokes genuine emotion as it proceeds there.
Her British accent is somewhat difficult to understand, but she does a fantastic reading, so I was able to stay with it. It's the book we'll all be talking about this summer, so you might as well get ahead of the game and read it now -- S.The author succeeded in making the readers curious to know how far a mother will go to save his son. It became an instant international bestseller, hitting the Sunday Times and Canadian Bestsellers list. Wrong Place Wrong Time is a masterfully plotted and ingenious psychological thriller told in reverse. And it is also hell of mind bending, twisty mystery guarantees to burn your extra brain cells wit the surprises you never see them coming! She embarks on a challenging yet exciting journey into the past to unravel the mystery behind everything that happened.
The entire concept of the book requires going back in time to various days to find out new information, that’s not dragging, that’s a book doing its job. Well this was certainly different, and there were so many twists I don’t know if I’m on my head or my heels!
It was a bit reminiscent of the movie Happy Death Day where the main character gets murdered and keeps reliving the day/murder over and over again until she figures out who did it.
The game at play is a dangerous one and it’s a rollercoaster ride as she makes some shocking discoveries in this voyage of second chances. I decided to jump in on The Traveling Friends buddy read, as I knew it was one I'd want to be able to discuss with others, and sure enough, it was a smart move. For all ebook purchases, you will be prompted to create an account or login with your existing HarperCollins username and password.I would recommend this to anyone who loves thrillers and also those who want to get started with psychological thrillers. Instead, it was well-crafted and finely tuned, weaving together an addictive tale about motherhood, second chances, and protecting those we love. The time loop is merely a device to set up the premise and enable the story to be told in a different way. There are some fantastic twists revealed at deliberate intervals, and like I said above, although I figured many of them out ahead of time, this was still an entertaining and clever story.
