This is a hard book to put down! It follows Detective Jake Walker through a multiple homicide investigation, as well as his family life as he tries to be a good dad to his three daughters and deal with his ex-wife at the same time. Once the killings commence, it's a roller coaster ride until the very end of the book. I ended up turning the pages as fast as I could in order to see what would happen next, because the author does a great job of keeping the reader guessing. Just when you think you know the pattern of the story, it twists an entirely different way. I thought I knew who the killer would turn out to be, and of course, I was completely wrong. Detective Walker's character is very well-developed, so that the reader gets to know him both professionally and personally. Overall, this is a very readable suspenseful book that will keep you wanting more from this author.

Brilliant and riveting book! James Kipling has once again mastered his method of throwing the reader straight into this dark fantasy right from the start. An excellent detective story creatively wrapped into a mystery and suspense thriller. Extremely well written. Crime and Mystery fills the pages as dead bodies are found all over the place. An intellectual murder and mystery thriller as this detective does what he does best adding being a good father to this weird thought thrilling equation.

James Kipling has the book glued to your hands with his exciting writing style with crime and murder twists and turns. I highly recommend this book to those who enjoy the Author's books but those enjoying a mystery and suspense thriller captivated in a dark fantasy. Yet again, Brilliant!

This is a great pick when you need an intellectual puzzle, a suspensful thriller, and crime fiction with the thread of revenge running through it. The procedural is written in the first person, so we really get to know Devon, and that's a great thing because he's a cool guy. I liked his devotion to fatherhood, especially since we don't have near enough serious genre characters who are also dads. Through his eyes we understand the high personal stakes he brings to all of his work, and especially to this case involving murdered students. I loved the way the relationship with his own daughter Cassie aids his work both as indirect inspiration and also directly. Big points to Kipling for pulling off those unique scenes.

The darker elements of the story don't suffer at all from the family themes, in fact, kids are at risk throughout the whole story. Walker is a father but he's first and foremost a relentless detective, and there is a lot of tension and action pushing the plot forward. Untangling the mystery is great, in a ripped from vengeful headlines way. Highly recommend this one for fans of crime fiction and suspenseful thrillers.

Devon Walker, a homicide detective, is your typical modern, hard-working man who is married to his job- already divorced with three kids. Just as you expect he would be able to give his family proper attention, guess what happens? The state college football team begins to turn up dead everywhere. Bodies are found gruesomely murdered, presumably by the man called "the Card Counter."

Kipling kept my attention straight from the get-go. I love a good murder story, especially the type where the media has given the killer a nickname. I'm a sucker for it, I admit. Green River Killer, Zodiac Killer, Card Counter...it's just too deliciously tempting. Kipling presents us and Walker with a puzzle to solve under pressure, while thing get more out of control and bizarre. "The Card Counter" was extremely entertaining and engaging and it kept me on the edge of my seat. I'm a bit embarrassed to say that I read it in one sitting...all the way until dawn! Whoops! I just couldn't put it down!

True crime fans taking a break from true crime books and anyone who enjoys suspense/crime thrillers would enjoy this book. Happy reading!

The Card Counter is a great crime/thriller/murder novel. I have read some other books by Kipling and I LOVED them, so I didn't even have to think twice about purchasing this book. I was hooked from the very beginning. Detective Walker was a very dynamic character and I loved how he just came to life (Kipling is a very descriptive author). I really enjoyed this book and it was very hard for me to put down. I love a good mystery book and this was a great read. The flow of the book is amazing and I was on my toes the entire time I was reading it. I experienced a lot of different emotions while reading The Card Counter. I highly recommend this book to EVERYONE. If you don't like thrillers and mysteries, you will end up wanting to read them more after reading The Card Counter. This is a great book!

The Card Counter has everything that defines a good, suspenseful crime thriller. The plot is mysterious and the author knows when to feed the reader certain clues at the appropriate times, always adding a piece to the puzzle, yet still raising more questions after each answer is given. I really admire Detective Walker it's not hard to tell that a lot of good character development has gone behind making him into the perfect protagonist for this kind of genre. I highly recommend it for any kind fans of thrillers out there.
