    Wrong Place Wrong Time grips you from first page and reels you in so completely that you really can’t put it down until the very last page. David tells his tale with incredible honesty and his writing style is such that you journey to Marbella with him, living every moment alongside him as he stumbles from one disaster to another, sometimes of his own making, mostly due to really bad timing and some incredibly bad luck! This book has blockbuster movie written all over it!

    WOW You want reality in a book? This is the book for you.
    Starting off with a change of job from being a real estate agent who lost his job, car and everything that went with it, including the money.
    A change of life was called for and started as a light hearted ‘wander’ into Marbella, sea, sand and sex being the only thing to worry about. It is a down right gritty autobiographical account of making some wrong choices in a different country.
    Its fast, its gut wrenching and almost makes you puke at the thought of some of the things he went through.

    The lies he had to endure the betrayal and violence he had to just manage through were appalling, along with some of the conditions he had to live in.
    Knowing he had the love and help of his family was the only thing that kept him going, a lot of us don’t have that.

    “it’s only a mirror”

    This might be a guy just telling his story but to be able to recall as much detail as he has in this book, it must be burnt into his mind for him to remember it as clearly and concisely as this.
    Thank you for sharing this bold, scary part of your life.
    Your mum was right you brought shame on her family but you went through more punishment than they would have ever given you.

    A fantastic recollection of life in a hard place , you won't be disappointed , you are also ready to read 'Five Weeks' which IMHO is also ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
