The first idyllic hours of Greg and Marena Walker’s Caribbean vacation are filled with turquoise water, sand as soft and white as powdered sugar, and gentle ocean breezes. But all too soon the Walkers find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time. Now they are running for their lives . . .
Scott Vaughn has made a lucrative career of secretly transporting illegal materials. Pay him enough, and he’ll move whatever you want from anywhere to anywhere. And though he has never met the Walkers, he needs them dead. His future depends on making certain they don’t have one..
Wayne Hovey desperately wants Scott Vaughn—alive is best; dead is acceptable. And luck has handed him the perfect bait: Greg and Marena Walker..In a heart-pounding game of cat and mouse, each player is driven to succeed, never realizing they are all pawns in something much larger—and more dangerous—than any of them knows.

This was great to listen to while working. I always enjoy the audio versions
I really enjoyed listening to this story. It kept me very entertained on my long drives. I was a bit disappointed with the stupid behavior of the Walkers. Some was just ridiculous! I am glad that there were other more intelligent characters.
It also made no sense why the bad guy was more intent on the Walkers than the Asians who would be hunting him and can also identify him. I just do not believe that a guy this smart would suddenly start behaving so foolishly. It was not consistent.
Overall, I would recommend this book.
Boy, this story just hits the ground running and doesn't slow down! I used to primarily read mystery/ suspense novels, but I haven't for a few years. I am glad that I chose to read this one though.
The prologue had me hooked right away, and the main story kept me interested throughout. The characters are very well developed and I was easily able to lose myself in the story.
I will be putting this book on my keeper shelf and look forward to reading more from this author.
This author did a great job of masterful detail, without droning on like some do. His introduction of characters was unique and smart because I couldn’t easily identify who would be a major player and who was minor. Some authors are lazy about that, but not this guy! So not only was I wondering what was next I was wondering who was pertinent how and every character contributed, rather than some being white noise. I hope to read another of his.
But OMGoodness the NARRATOR! I listen to many audiobooks and I tell ya, this guy could make a phone book reading sound fantastic! (For younger folks, that’s a paper book with city residents names in alphabetical order). He had SO many different voices for many characters and never missed a beat! He was consistent and in a book with so many characters we needed his talent to help us keep everybody straight. The author must be thrilled with this narrator. I thought for sure they were one and the same but not so! Some men do the stupidest female voices but this guy was flawless without sounding goofy or trying too hard. I wanna meet this guy and give him a high five or something. THE BEST!!!! Now I want to download whatever else he’s read.
THIS audiobook was excellent.
This was the first time reading a book by this author and I hope it won't be the last. Harrison is a wonderful writer using vivid descriptions that immerse you into the story from the first chapter. All of the characters are brought to life so brilliantly that this book runs like a movie in your head. You are never thrown out of this story because of the fantastic plot. Once you start reading you are going to want to keep on reading.
This novel is told from many different POV's but is easy to follow. The novel begins with Greg and Marena Walker on a vacation in the Dominican Republic. That's where the good times end for them after witnessing a murder. The action and suspense in this novel never stops. I wondered throughout the novel who were the good and the bad guys. There were many questions wandering through my mind as I tried to piece this together.
Honestly, this is one of the best books I've read so far in 2019. This is why this book receives a 5-Star rating from me. I want more from this author, especially in this genre. This book is my top pick for your Summer reading!

I was intrigued by this book immediately and then shocked with the outcome of the first chapter. I don't want to give away what happened, but I will say that throughout the story we are introduced to quite a few characters that have passing involvement. Although that is probably common for a suspense novel, most of the books I read have more character development, so I missed making connections to the characters. Even with the lack of depth, I did enjoy the story and wanted to know what would become of the bad guy.
I was surprised that Greg and Marena were so gutsy with Scott after what they witnessed him doing. I expected more fear and subservience, but their actions made for an entertaining story.

E. James Harrison has written a compelling suspense novel. The focus is on the horrible situation that Greg and Marena find themselves in rather than a romance which made the suspense the most compelling part of the story. The prologue pulled me into the story immediately and the book didn't let go anywhere along the way. It was interesting to see the different perspectives as the story went on, including the bad guys and their motivations and actions and how they collided with the 'good guys' including Greg and Marena who came to the Domincan Republic for vacation and ended up in the 'wrong place' at the 'wrong time' and ended up facing death. I especially enjoyed the details about Greg and Marena's vacation and snorkeling trip before things went wrong. An enjoyable mystery full of suspense and sympathetic as well as evil characters, Wrong Place Wrong Time is a great choice for those who enjoy a good suspense story without all the romance.
I don't read a lot of just suspense novels. I read them as a romance, as a historical fiction, as...well, mostly anything other than just suspense, so this novel was a little new and different for me. As soon as I got into this novel I just kept thinking that I would watch this as a movie. It was that fast paced. I'm more used to a slightly slower pace and more character development. This seemed a little more like a movie where you have to cram everything into two hours so you don't have a lot development going on. We don't really get to know any of the characters. We don't get to know what makes them click, why they do what they do. We just get a surface this is what is happening now and hold on tight because it's going to change in two seconds. I would have liked to have seen more of why Vaughn did what he did. He didn't originally want to take the job in the first place, so why go to such lengths that he did? Just for the money? While sometimes that would be believable, this was set up so that doesn't feel right.
I was also taken aback by how many characters there were in this novel. I'm used to two main characters, some minor characters and the bad guys. This just had a whole bunch of people. Granted, they were all necessary to the plot, which made it more believable, but sometimes it was a little hard to follow.
It was definitely fast paced, and a really quick read. You do keep wondering what's going to happen next, and that is the point of a suspense novel, so the author ticked all the boxes there. There is no swearing, there is some violence. Mostly the violence is gun shots, but there is a scene with a pitch fork that is gory.

Great Read: I usually do not reach for a suspense novel when I sit down to read, but I couldn't resist this one. It was one of those books that you pick up and can't put down and when it is finished you don't want it to end. From the first page, I was captivated. The characters were so believable and I loved the sweet little old lady who is taken advantage of and the author successfully manages to turn her tormented experience around and produces a "hero". I highly recommend " Wrong Place Wrong Time" if you are looking for a great "feel-good" book!!!
I really enjoyed this book! I loved the suspense and the diversity of the characters! It kept me in my toes and once I started I couldn’t put it down! I liked all the detail, and could visualize myself in the places he described! Can’t wait for more from this author!
I so love a good suspense story!
While I would hate being in a situation like this, I do love reading about someone else being in a situation like this!
I especially love reading how it all comes together and how it all plays out.
Such a GREAT BOOK!
Grab a copy for some fun summer reading!
Wrong Place, Wrong Time started off slow for me at first but as the action and suspense started unfolding I was hooked as a reader. The story has several moments where characters were either in the wrong place at the wrong time or the right place at just the right time. It was an action packed and suspenseful read. The descriptions were well-written and I could easily visualize the scenes and characters. It's well worth a read.
I received a free copy, however my opinion is my own.
Wow! If you pick up this book, you’d better hang on tight. This book is a crazy ride of things that you’d never expect to go wrong. I loved the way it kept me turning pages long after I should have been done.
One of my favorite things about this one was the cast of characters. There are so many. They are diverse and unique and that made this book really interesting. I didn’t have a hard time keeping up on any of the stories, though. The author did a really good job keeping things where they went.
It’s a bit tricky to come up with who would be the main characters in this one. I think it’s Greg and Marena Walker along with Scott Vaughn. But there are so many different perspectives throughout the book. I liked the way the author uses so many different perspectives from characters in this one. It gives the reader a great picture of exactly what happened and when.
If you like suspenseful books, this one is for you! The plot will keep you turning pages wanting to know just what is coming next. It’s a thriller for sure!
