The Card Counter

The Card Counter was an extremely engaging book that you want to read in earnest because the plot is so compelling. As a murder/crime book, It’s an instant classic mystery because of the sense of urgency throughout as well as the tough decision-making that our protagonist is forced to make. Often we get a firsthand account of his struggles in having to sacrifice himself and his family for the sake of another person’s life. Those things often take a toll on us and we can all relate to having to go through those tribulations, although to a lesser extent.

This book has plenty of assassinations and conspiracies that readers will have to grapple with along with the victims. What we discover is that things are quite darker than they seem. The author, James Kipling is very creative in this body of work and I commend him for his ability to think outside the box and deliver such an intense contribution to the crime fiction genre!
