On November 24, 2015, a little more than a month after it was published, Wrinkled Heartbeats by Temple Emmet Williams made it into the Top 20 on three separate best-seller lists in the Thriller & Suspense genre at Amazon.
The author is in the process of writing a blog post that explains how and why the book climbed so rapidly. It should be published in a few weeks. Tentatively titled “The Secret Of The Marketing Triangle,” it will outline, step-by-step, how the author’s book made the move, and also why it is so hard to keep it there.
Wrinkled Heartbeats is about a war hero who stumbles into a web of money-laundering, lies, and deadly secrets, including 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 who has been hired to kill him.
For the warrior, one of the bloodiest, and one of the coldest battles in the history of the United States Marine Corps becomes a life-threatening allegory in the tropical paradise of the Palm Beaches.
