This is another true story and this time set in London, Eastbourne and America! I worked for an Estate Agent in North London and I attend a party along with my friend Steve in Islington. Then just after Steve disappears to the loo, two guys come into the kitchen where we were and dragged me across the floor punching me in the face and ripping my hair out.

A few months later I'm threatened by the same guys from the party, BUT this time with a gun in my back and told if I'm seen in the area again, they will have no hesitation in using the gun. 

So after resigning from my job, I was invited to spend Christmas in Eastbourne with my girlfriend Jenny at her parents place . We decide to stay and move to Brighton where I was offered a job as a tele-sales manager for an American portrait company, but first must take a trip to Pennsylvania for a five week training course.


5***** "I have read Dave's other book WRONG PLACE WRONG TIME and thoroughly enjoyed it, so when I found out he'd written FIVE WEEKS I jumped at the chance to read it."

5***** "FIVE WEEKS is equally as entertaining as WRONG PLACE WRONG TIME, the story's about a dream job in America that turns into a five week nightmare where he's fled for dead in a Pennsylvania forest."

5***** "David's life would be equally as exciting if it was a prime time to show or a hit movie."

5***** "I read WRONG PLACE WRONG TIME and FIVE WEEKS equally good (if not better), fast-paced true story of the innocent North London estate agent coming a cropper in the States. A scenario, which is one of my personal nightmares."

5***** "FIVE WEEKS is equally as entertaining as WRONG PLACE WRONG TIME."

5***** "Action Packed. Fantastic. Great Writing."

5***** "The writing is witty and highly original. Read the first chapter and you’ll be hooked."

5***** "Having read the authors first book, WRONG PLACE WRONG TIME which I loved, I had to read this and WOW. This is a great story and one yet again I will recommend."
