With Wrong Place, Wrong Time, Tilia Jacobs gives us the story of Tsara, a Jewish housewife who receives an invitation to a ball that she doesn’t really want to attend. The reason? It’s being held by her uncle with whom she has had no contact for nearly 25 years. Her husband stays home to look after the children while she attends with her brother. When they first arrive, her uncle’s security guards are evicting a man from the property for trespassing. During the course of the evening, her uncle’s best friend, Hans, swaps rooms with her with disastrous consequences. When she turns in for the night 2 men break into her room and kidnap her, holding her hostage. One of the men is the one who was evicted earlier and, during the course of the next 2 days, it comes out that Tsara’s uncle has kidnapped the man’s 6-year-old son and he wants him back.

Wrong Place, Wrong Time is an extremely well written book with an excellent plot. It follows the story from start to finish, not just the kidnapping, but how the victims deal with life afterwards and right through to the finale of the court case. It is a story of more than one person being in the wrong place at the wrong time and Tilia Jacobs draws everything together in one neat package. It is a little gritty in places but there is an underlying tale here of courage and bravery in one man’s bid to bring his son back home whatever the cost. Although I struggled a little to start with, I have to say that I found it hard to put down in the end, wanting nothing more than to get to the end and see how it all turned out.
