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

“Absolutely AMAZING. The plot is astonishing—original and ingenious. But it’s much more than that; the love Jen has for her son and her husband is beautiful. The stakes are so high because they’re so meaningful.” —Marin Keyes, internationally bestselling author

“A brilliantly genre-bending, mind-twisting answer to the question How far would you go to save your child?” —Ruth Ware, #1 New York Times bestselling author

“Daring, inventive, exhilarating, twisted. This is virtuoso storytelling. Please dive in. It’s the right place and the right time.” —A. J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author

“A work of such genius it leaves you in awe. Wrong Place, Wrong Time is impossibly clever, daringly original and heart-rending. Exceptional.” —Chris Whitaker, New York Times bestselling author of We Begin at the End

From UK bestselling author Gillian McAllister comes an astonishing, compulsively twisty psychological thriller about a mother who witnesses her teenage son stab a man and then seizes on an unconventional way to try to save him, deemed “clever, original, and so addictive it should come with a warning” by Alice Feeney, bestselling author of Rock Paper Scissors

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

Late October. After midnight. You’re waiting up for your eighteen-year-old son. He’s past curfew. As you watch from the window, he emerges, and you realize he isn’t alone: he’s walking toward a man, and he’s armed.

You can’t believe it when you see him do it: your funny, happy teenage son, he kills a stranger, right there on the street outside your house. You don’t know who. You don’t know why. You only know your son is now in custody, his future shattered.

That night you fall asleep in despair. All is lost.

Until you wake . . .

. . . and it is yesterday.

And then you wake again . . .

. . . and it is the day before yesterday.

Every morning you wake up a day earlier, another day before the murder. With another chance to stop it. Somewhere in the past lies an answer. The trigger for this crime—and you don’t have a choice but to find it . . .

“Another ingeniously plotted genre-bender… McAllister succeeds in making us care, and the result is a tour de force.” — The Guardian

“This entertaining look at motherhood and memory will resonate with many." — Publishers Weekly

    This was entirely unexpected…I figured it out the same way she did just as she went along.. This really must have been difficult to write, but very well done!!

    Captured nostalgia in the most heart wrenching and beautiful way. A fun and captivating read, but also deeply touching and emotional.

    This was an interesting read. This was a first Gillian McAllister read and I enjoyed solving this mystery. I was immersed from the beginning and mind blown at the end. I enjoyed the story line and the plot. During the middle of the story I begin to get a little lost with keeping up with all the information and the timeline and the dual POV so that’s the only negative I have to say. If you enjoy reading books that solves crimes in reverse. This is the perfect book for you.

    This unique premise hooked me, and I couldn’t stop listening! I found the characters compelling and the unraveling mystery surprising. The narration was great as well. Definitely recommend!

    Creative concept in theory, a little difficult to follow in reality. At first I enjoyed reading this from a mother’s perspective, makes you wonder how much time you really spend being present with your kids, and what is the significance of the little things you miss. But then that kind of…became a moot point? Though it did make you focus on the age old question, if you knew what was going to happen, would you still make the same choices? I think it was taken too far (literally) and got boring and repetitive. This was slow moving and too long - it should have ended like 3 times. Without giving anything away, this just isn’t my type of “thriller.”

    3.5 stars: I went into this one blind and enjoyed it on audio. It did drag a bit in the middle, causing me to lose focus. And as a result, I just wanted to get to the end for the big reveal. The epilogue had me confused, like I had missed something, and had to re-listen to it twice.

    Took me a couple of chapters to get invested in this one. However once your in your hooked. It becomes a what if you could stop a tragic event in your life. Or perhaps in this case a why did it happen in the first place. This is just enthralling and gripping and full of heart. Great read

    Book 100 of 2022 — Wrong Place, Wrong Time by Gillian McAllister

    Oh my goodness! I LOVED this book. Suspenseful, surprising, funny, happy, sad — all the things! I seriously gasped about ten different times at each twist!

    Jen is an awesome storyteller. As she travels back in time, we feel her apprehension at events. It seeps into everything she does. I loved the interactions with her, Kelly, and Todd. A beautiful commentary on family love.

    The real question is what is real and what isn’t. Would you make the same choices if you knew their far-reaching effects?

    Good story, captivating. Though the plot is not brand new, it’s the connections to the characters and investment in their lives that keeps it going.

    What a “page turner” couldn’t stop listening, lots of twists and suspense, fascinated with the concept of dejavú and how people can be connected through time and space, what prevails and what gets skipped. Amazing

    2/5
    I really wanted to like this book! The concept is a very unique one. But this could’ve been about 200 pages shorter. There was a lot of unnecessary noise, (too much description) too many cuss words… just too much! It became very tedious to listen too! The only reason I kept going is because I had invested too much, not to finish. It came full circle in the end, but our protagonist was infuriating to much of the time, to naïve… and as such not credible! Don’t waist your time!
