Program Description


The title for this month is Wrong Place Wrong Time by Gillian McAllister. 

A psychological thriller about a mother who witnesses her teenage stab a man and then seizes on an unconventional way to save him. Can a murder be stopped after it’s already happened? After midnight one night she is waiting for her  seventeen-year-old son to return home and he is late. As she watches from the window her son emerges and he isn’t alone. He is walking toward a man, who is armed. She can’t believe it when she sees her son do this. That night she falls asleep in despair until she wakes up again, and it is yesterday, then she wakes up again, and it is the day before yesterday. Each morning she wakes up it’s another day before the murder – with another chance to stop it.
