You might want to read The Bridge of San Luis Rey by American author Thornton Wilder. It was his second novel, first published in 1927 to worldwide acclaim

Lifeline by Heinlein is very similar. Instead of a timer, he saw the body through time. There was a X Files episode where an insurance salesman knew when people would die.

If you call a large public library and give them this info, they may be able to find the book for you. You'd need to ask for the reference section most likely.

Here's a couple resources you can try.

link1

link2

link3

My best advice is to call a large public library, but if that doesn't work, maybe one of the other resources can help.

I wish I could just answer this for you. It's kind of familiar, but I would be of no help guessing.

Good luck

I've seen or read that concept before. Here's a short film which may be where I saw it.

Ah, Death Note has it from the eyes of what's his bucket, the monster dude. I watched most or maybe all of it, but I don't remember the details. I just saw a video clip of somebody discussing the manga which for sure has it. I didn't watch the whole video clip talking about it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aNFijQ5d0t0

Here's a trailer to a movie with a similar concept, where money is time left in people's lives, but it's displayed on their arms. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5K0s6eveTsI

And a music video featuring the effect. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_JQiEs32SqQ

I might be able to help you, if you can help me first. There is a movie, I was a child. An armored soldier (looked Roman) bursted out from a MOUNTAIN (cliff face). What is the TITLE of the movie? I have LEARNED not to help others for free. I'm FAIR...I'm Not a sucker.
