About the Author

My name is David P Perlmutter and I have a story to tell based on true events. There are moments in the story that I'm not proud of but also there are some that I am. You will have your own opinion of me, like some of the reviewers have stated in their reviews.

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.

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.

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.

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.
