THE ADJAL OF JIMMY TEMPLE

Samuel Johnson once said that "when a man knows he is to be hanged in a fortnight it concentrates his mind wonderfully," thinks Jimmy Temple. And what does he have to concentrate on? How about a dead psychic billionaire, a Bel Air harridan of a stepmother, a genius of a plastic surgeon, and a drop-dead gorgeous woman who needs him in more than one way...

Jimmy Temple, a well-read, soft-boiled Los Angeles private eye, has just embarked on the wildest case of his career. Dubbed the Love Detective by the media, Jimmy makes a comfortable living in moneyed Bel Air by finding lost lovers for wealthy clients. But when Wanda Kincaid, a femme fatale straight out of a Chandler novel, chooses Jimmy to help catch her billionaire father's murderer, Jimmy can't resist taking the case. How does Wanda know Jimmy is her man for the job? She is psychic. And so, apparently, is Jimmy.

The secret of Jack Kincaid's fortune resides in the funeral home that has been in the Kincaid family for generations. When Jack Kincaid slept in his childhood bedroom, the room above the parlor's "wet room" where the corpses were embalmed, he could travel into the future and see other people's deaths. Then he would pose as a hit-man, contacting those who may want the person he saw dead, and collect a tidy fee for no work at all.

His psychic powers made Jack Kincaid a rich man. They also made him a twisted and morbid man, and a dead one. Or did they?

Jaron Summers' The Adjal Of Jimmy Temple is a thriller that takes us into the realm of the supernatural. Those who have psychic power are able to see certain people's Adjals, literally, their day of death. But what do you do if one of the Adjals turns out to be yours? Jimmy Temple is about to find out.
