Over 330 reviews across Amazon with 200 x 5* and over 50 x 4*!

5* It was a great read...I finished it all in one day...just couldn't put it down.

5* Its why you must read David's account. He writes what happened with such intensity.

5* Story I'm likely never to forget. Riveted, stunned, heartbroken, genuinely worried & in many places even found myself smiling & laughing.

5* Found Mr Perlmutter to be completely frank, open & no time does he play down any culpability for his actions.

5* He managed to make me a complete nervous wreck at points unable to look up from the pages.

5* Real life is messy, exciting & soul changing. That's exactly what WRONG PLACE WRONG TIME offers the reader.

5* Good as any book published by a mainstream publisher, and better than a lot of the drivel they deem fit to publish.

5* WRONG PLACE WRONG TIME is the first book written by David Perlmutter and what a fantastic story he has to tell.

5* Absolutely fantastic book from first chapter to last you will be engrossed in David's life.

WRONG PLACE WRONG TIME is the first book written by David Perlmutter and what a fantastic story he has to tell.

The biography is of a young successful man who had it all, and lost it all by making one careless mistake. This error in judgement caused a chain reaction of errors that took David on a roller-coaster of misfortunes and plain, bad luck. The book certainly fits the title. We've all been at the wrong place and wrong time. David has been there numerous times.

This story is well-written and gripping to the end. I applaud the author for telling his story. It's a quick read that you will want to finish in one setting just because it's that captivating.

Highly recommended. Brilliant story sir.

3.0 out of 5 stars authorpholloway August 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I feel bad for this poor guy and all he had to go through. What is scary is that something like this could happen to anyone. I had a difficult time getting into the book and almost gave up on it several times. It goes into so much details describing all the different alcoholic drinks, who bought each round and where they met to drink the next day and that night and the next day and so on.

I didn't start to get into the book until around page two hundred. Up until then it read like a book on the adventures of an alcoholic. The poor guy never seemed to learn his lesson. He loses his job and everything he owns due to alcohol and what does he do? He changes where he lives but continues his self-disdructive behavior. Even when the journalist takes him in while he's out on bail, he continues his alcoholic behavior. I'm wondering if he ever did learn or is he still living like that.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Walk from Hell July 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Such a harrowing experience, it took David P Perlmutter twenty years to be able to put pen to paper and tell his true story, or nightmare may be a better word. We all make foolish mistakes, but David's mistake turned his life upside down.

After a night out drinking in London, David got behind the wheel. If that wasn't stupid enough, he made a nuisance of himself by driving like an idiot and neighbors justifiably called the police. He was thrown in jail overnight, and the next day he was fired. David had a great career as a realtor making great money. He not only lived in a luxury apartment but drove a BMW to boot.

Soon after being fired he appeared in court and his license was suspended for a year and he was ordered to pay a considerable fine. This resulted in having to move back with mom and dad giving up his life of luxury.

When all this really hit David, it hit him hard. He became depressed, reclusive, and a couch potato. He knew he couldn't continue on this path so he decided to escape to some fun in the sun, Marbella, Spain.

David is the first to admit he blew it. He spent money he didn't have and partied way too much. Eventually this took its toll. He did get a job of sorts, but that ended up badly with a busted up face. Of course a beautiful woman was involved, one usually is. So David was jobless again.

Having just a few bucks left and a bruised face David tries to find an out of the way bar to have a drink. Here he meets a couple, Peter and Rosa, who befriends him and he gets drunk with them. The guy is a loser, but the woman, Rosa, is a knock out. She flirts with David and again he gets himself in trouble. When he leaves the bar it's with Rosa. She takes him to her place and they have an incredible night of steamy hot sex.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very mixed feelings, 2.5 stars. December 31, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a true story written by the author, about how he ended up being in the wrong place at the wrong time. A place that no one in their right mind wants to be - behind bars in a foreign country, accused of a heinous crime.

This story is well-written with a gritty reality that might bother some people. The author doesn't spare the reader's sensabilities, using at times very raw phrases and invective. However, it never felt like the author used foul language egregiously, in my opinion. It does not seem like he hides any of the choices he made, leading to his predicament.

It starts with the author "living the life" of a successful real estate agent. He doesn't say how long he had been working in this job, but he does tell the reader about the night of drinking and drugs which caused him to lose his license and his job. But instead of trying to get his life in order, he goes off to Marbella, Spain, continuing the behavior which got him into trouble in the first place. He then takes the reader along on his trip downward, until he gets back home to England.

Although this is a very interesting tale, and I can appreciate the effort that it took for the author to relive his disgrace, I am disturbed by a few things. Throughout the book, it seems like he echoes his title, saying "I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time." Repeatedly. But as I read, I couldn't shake the feeling that the author never quite accepted the fact that his behavior and poor choices landed him in the mess in the first place. He proclaims his innocence, which indeed may be the case. But we only have the author's word for that. It still feels like he blames others or circumstances beyond his control, rather than his lack of discretion and addictive/self-destructive behavior which ended up affecting more than just himself. Because of this, I had difficulty enjoying the book or feeling entirely sympathetic towards the author. Others might see things differently.
