Plot Summary
Wrong Place, Wrong Time is the first novel in the DS Ripley series by author PS Brown.  Three brothers are carrying out their own form of vigilante justice on criminals who have escaped prosecution.  But when one of their crimes is witnessed the witness struggles to know who he can turn to and trust and finds DS Ripley may be his only friend.

My Review
It was certainly an interesting take on the vigilante style novel but with a very British police procedural overtone.  Nasty criminals are being eliminated and taken out and DS Ripley and his new partner Coffey are assigned to the case in something of an interesting way, a witness to one of the murders is on the loose and both the perpetrators and the police are trying to find him.

At times though this book is often a lesson in how not to write a crime novel.  It was a very difficult read at times owing to sentence structure which often came across as you find with new authors.  It was very much he did this she did that style of writing.

As such the characters didn't always come across too enjoyably but there is a lot of scope with them.   The author has laid down areas of potential development for future novels and could develop a nice little series especially as the plot was very well done.
