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. Thank you for reading my book.

Outline of story:

After successfully negotiating another property deal in London, I meet a friend to celebrate but due to my own reckless stupidity events that night took a wrong turn and I end up losing everything I had worked so hard for. A month or two later I head for Marbella, Spain with its promise of adventure and fun. Little do I know that I’m about to be thrust into the most terrifying time of my life. Wrong Place Wrong Time is a gripping true-life story of an unimaginable nightmare and how my ticket to a new life turns out to be a one way ticket to hell. (Author Description)

I noticed from Mr Purlmutter’s author description that he now lives in Portugal. I’m not surprised, as I doubt he’ll ever go back to Spain! Those who lived there during the time Mr Purlmutter writes about in his true story, knows that both the Police and Guardia Civil took no nonsense. They would throw you in the back of a van and off to prison quicker than you could turn around and that is what clearly happened in this case.

To back up a bit, the author did what many young people do, even today, when you’re in a hole and have nothing to lose, go to a foreign country to ‘work the season’. Luckily not everyone’s adventures turn out the way Mr Purlmutter’s did. Think of him what you will, an idiot, foolish, brave, kind and caring there is no getting away from the fact that this is a fascinating true story. He writes with aplomb, using a great descriptive style that at times is heart wrenching in its frankness. So go on, walk the streets of Marbella with Mr Purlmutter, I promise you won’t be disappointed. A great 5* read.

Just noticed the tweet. Thank you for the review and like you say, I have been called many things which I understand how people would feel about my actions. I have not been back to Spain and doubt I will ever after my experience there. This is my first book I have written and it makes me humble that you gave it a 5* and that you enjoyed the read! Thank you!
