More About the Author

Hello and thank you for visiting my author page.

WRONG PLACE WRONG TIME is my first book and was encouraged by my family and friend/editor to put pen to paper/fingers to laptop and write. It is based on a events that happened to me when in the early 90's I visited Marbella in Spain.

The success of Wrong Place Wrong Time has been mind blowing and the reviews from readers around the world has been a wonderful surprise. Over 248 x 5* reviews across Amazon.

My second book, called MY WAY is all about book marketing and has received many 4/5* reviews from authors who have said that the tips have helped increase book sales and gain wider exposure on the social media scene.

My third book is called FIVE WEEKS and about a guys new life in America but ends up nearly left for dead in Pennsylvania.

If you do download my books I hope you enjoy.

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.

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.

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.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The first chapter of a novel is the most valuable piece of real estate in a novel. It is where the story is won and lost. Unfortunately, in this book, the story was lost. In the first few pages, the hero loses his job and lands in jail with no more emotion or strife than a routine tooth extraction. Prior to leaving for Spain, he has a relatively emotionless run-in with his family. If you read the acknowledgment section of the book, the author clearly has a great attachment to his family. I would have rather seen it in the novel.

Then the main character heads to Spain, and I was looking forward to a Hemingway-esque travelogue. What I got instead was Austin Powers on holiday, without even the added tension of Dr. Evil trying to do him harm. He drinks a lot, and has sex with fembots - essentially the same hot women with different names. He is attached to nothing and no one, so how can the reader be attached to him?

This is a book in which nothing much happens, over and over, until something actually happens. Even when it does, the story is told in such a way that I felt like I was observing the action through a telephoto lens instead of being in the middle of events with the main character.

The best part of the book is toward the end, after the fire. The irony of the book Misery making an appearance is great, since the main character is trying to escape a situation in which he is a hostage. The flight from justice (or what passes for it) and the dastardly Paul are the parts of the book that hook the reader. I wish with all my might that this kind of tension had started on page 1 and persisted throughout the book.
