Wrong Place, Wrong Time




How do you stop a murder after it's already happened? Find out the lengths one woman will go to save her family in Gillian McAllister's first hardback publication.

It's every parent's nightmare.

Your happy, funny, innocent son commits a terrible crime: murdering a complete stranger.

You don't know who. You don't know why. You only know your teenage boy is in custody and his future lost.

That night you fall asleep in despair. Until you wake . . .

. . . and it is yesterday.

Every morning you wake up a day earlier, another day before the murder. Another chance to stop it.

Somewhere in the past lie the answers, and you don't have a choice but to find them . . .

Praise for Wrong Place, Wrong Time

An extraordinary novel. Intricately plotted, beautifully written and impossible to put down. This is a Groundhog Day thriller lived and told backwards, which is such an incredibly smart concept - but Wrong Place, Wrong Time is not just clever, it's heart-wrenching and full of emotion too. McAllister is a writer at the absolute top of her game

Beth O'Leary

A genre-defining masterpiece that turns everything you think you know about crime, family and memory on its head. I'm so jealous of everybody who gets to read this for the first time. An instant classic

Holly Seddon

It's perfection, every word, every moment. A masterpiece

Lisa Jewell

McAllister, the Queen of the Moral Dilemma, takes ordinary families and puts them in extraordinary situations - 'if Jodi Picoult wrote psychological thrillers'
