More About the Author

Welcome to my 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 events that happened in the early 90's when I visited Spain.

I am delighted to share that the book had become a #1 Bestseller in TRUE CRIME on Amazon in US, along with #2 in True Accounts in Japan, #1 in Factual in Spain and top #10 in UK. I am also amazed at the number of reviews, over 300 with over 180 x 5* so far! Thank you readers.

My second book is called MY WAY, its about how I have marketed Wrong Place Wrong Time, firstly because I was told I should and secondly to give new authors, like myself some tips.

1.0 out of 5 stars It should be titled "Walter Mitty rides again" 24 Mar 2013
By KeithT
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If this book has anything more than a fleeting connection with reality I will be amazed. He certainly is quick to blame everybody but himself for the situations he finds himself in. From the start, when done for driving under the influence of drink and drugs, he tries to excuse himself by claiming it was a momentary error. Unfortunately these moments seem to occupy most of his life.
Then Mr Superhero risks life and limb climbing 30 feet up the drainpipe of a burning building to rescue a damsel in distress. This after consuming beer and champagne all night at a party! Not content with one piece of heroism he then runs into said burning building, avoiding police and other emergency services, to try to rescue anybody else he can find. What he accidentally finds and then pockets are cash and credit cards. Once out of the building he has enough about him to hide the cash "because it's heavy" but 'forgets' to do the same with the credit cards.
If I seem to be giving too much of the story line away I make no apology as, if I can stop just one person wasting their money on this drivel I will be happy.

1.0 out of 5 stars A story of ego and pride 11 April 2013
By skem
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this thinking from the reviews it would be a gripping true tale of one mans struggle. But in reality if you enjoy reading about selfishness, ego and pride then this is the book for you. I felt angry reading it as the writer wanted the reader to feel sorry for him, i did not. His actions were selfish, his behaviour stupid and his actions ridiculous. I find it hard to believe that he was on a mission to be a hero, it would seem that he was really there to pocket money and credit cards from those who were caught in in a tragedy by chance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Suffering abroad 22 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a nightmare fo David, an apt title. Well done for sharing this brilliant true story. It goes to show that anything, anywhere can happen to anyone and although much of it was because David had made the wrong choices he has earned his second chance at making the most of his life. It could have all gone badly wrong had he he stayed in Marbella. One place I will not be visiting! Easy reading, unable to put this book down until the end in just 3x days.

5.0 out of 5 stars A captivating read :) 9 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Oh my! What a fabulous book. I absolutely loved this story and especially as it is based on the author's real life experience. I was captivated and fully engaged from page 1. I know it's become a rather cliche thing to say in reviews but I genuinely could not put the book down and it was read in just over 4 hours. What struck me after I'd read it was how the author must always be looking over his shoulder and how must it feel to be a 'wanted' man? I consider the author to be so very brave to publish this novel. I understand why he felt compelled to do so and I'm full of admiration for him. It is written very well and is a definite page turner. If you love real life novels, this should be on your list of 'must reads'!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping, Scary & A Good Read 16 Jun 2012
By William
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this book a few days ago and later that night (about 11pm) went up to bed to have a read - I ended up staying awake until 2.30am to finish it!

I am just a bit older than the Author was when the events took place and I can relate to a lot of what writes about, being a bit naive and carefree when young. Fortunately for me (unfortunately for David) the few scrapes I had in my early 20s with the police were here in the UK not Spain!!!

Anyone who enjoys reading books involving True Crime,the Police,Spain, Being young and a bit adventurous should definitely give this a read.

5/5 from me and hopefully David Perlmutter decides to write further books.

Picked this up and read it in a couple of days - found it impossible to put down, as I had to see what happened in the end.
I found the writing both easy and flowing to read. His descriptions were wonderful - you could see what he saw, and feel everything he felt. Yes, he made some stupid decisions at the time - he made mistakes - but he was a youngster at the time, and most of us have made silly decisions and mistakes in our younger days. Many of us get away with things, that no one ever has to know about it, so I have to feel sorry for his bad luck at being in the wrong place at the wrong time, and admire his honesty in admitting to all of his mistakes at the time. It could have happened to any of us...

I also imagine, that getting it all written down, has probably been very cathartic/therapeutic to him. And it's amazing how truth can be so much stranger than fiction. We never know what we're capable of, until we're put in situations where we really have to fight for our own survival... I hope he writes more. Would like to know what's happened since this book ended!
