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… (més)

Written in present tests, this time-travel novel is about going back into the past in order to explain and prevent an event occurring in the present - Day Zero.

From there, the beginning, we are presented with chapters with names like Day Minus One, Day Minus Two, Day Minus One Hundred and Forty Four, in ever increasing backward intervals.

It’s the tale of a marriage related backwards. There’s a twist, but to give it away is to spoil the plot.

The book starts off slowly and I almost gave up on it. It gained interest as the years fell away, but never succeeded in fully grabbing attention. And then the clinch came with a less than believable ending. It’s all been done before. Time travel, the dilemma of changing the future, the necessity of collateral damage.

I bought Wrong Place Wrong Time as I needed some light reading. I just wish it had been a bit shorter and deeper. ( )

suspense fiction - described by the author as Russian Dolls with knife crime, a UK mother of an 18-y.o. gets stuck in a time loop that brings her further and further back in time as she tries to prevent her son from committing an unexpected knife assault on a strange man in front of their house.

took a little while for me to warm to the main character but a very quick suspenseful read that will also let you sleep peacefully after you've finished it. Plus no female characters end up getting hurt, so yay, an easy one to recommend. ( )

This is a bit like a time travel suspense but not. The plot is very unique with a few characters that you can invest in....if you can be sure enough of one. How many times many of us would like to go back and try to prevent something that has happened in the past? How far back would you "really" need to go? Who could you possibly tell what was happening to you? Would they believe you? What would you see differently in the past because you have lived a bit of the present and how much are you willing to adjust the future? It's a book that I really let go and got in to. I would have liked more characters and those characters to have been well developed. ( )

A time-traveling thriller that did not end up where I expected. The setup is this: a happily married mom witnesses her only child, now a teen, stab a man to death on the street outside their home. Hours later, emotionally and physically spent, she falls asleep and wakes up 24 hours earlier than the stabbing incident.

She keeps traveling back in time (the book dates where she is along the timeline x days or months or years before the night her son committed murder). She relives moments and scenes from her past and picks up small clues to solve the mystery of who the man was, why her son stabbed him, and how she might be able to change the past to shift the future. Along the way, she finds out many things that she'd come to accept about her life, marriage, and family weren't what she thought them to be.

But, the one thing that never wavers is her love for her son and desire to protect him. IMO, this is a story you've hear before, but the reverse chronology is a unique construction that sets it apart from a sea of similar family thrillers. If you like psychological drama, give this one a try. ( )

This book is so so so so gooood! If you like psychological mystery thrillers you will love this book.

I can always judge a book by my thoughts as I’m reading. When I’m not counting the pages until the next chapter I know it’s a good book.

Holds your attention in every way possible. And the twists, oh wow the twists. It makes the book even better.

5 stars all around ! ( )
