“A deftly crafted and extraordinary novel,
very highly recommended.” -- Midwest Book Reviews
Chosen as one of the best new novels of the year at the
2016 Next Generation Indie Book Awards.
Wrinkled Heartbeats is Temple's first novel.Within a month of being published, the book climbed into the Top 20 on three different Mystery & Thriller best-seller lists on Amazon. The story is about a war hero who stumbles into a web of money-laundering, lies, and deadly secrets. It includes the “Gator Pole,” a painful way to make people disappear in Florida’s famous River of Grass, the Everglades.
A very generous offer to buy the hero’s luxury home includes an expiration date on his life. The only person who can save him is the person hired to kill him.
For the warrior, one of the bloodiest and coldest battles in the history of the UnitedStates Marine Corps becomes a life-threatening allegory in the tropical paradise of the Palm Beaches.
Wrinkled Heartbeats has been awarded the coveted Awesome Indies Approval Badge. “This signals that a book has been crafted to the editorial standards of major publishers. This shows readers that they can trust that the book is a professional product worthy of their attention.”
