As each victim turns up, the case becomes more traumatic and bizarre. The killer has a point to make and will continue to make people pay with their lives . . . until Walker and the rest of the city GETS IT!! Find out who is murdered next and follow Detective Walker until he uncovers the truth behind these killings, the twisted motive for this murderous rampage.

Amazon Reader Reviews of ‘Mystery Thriller & Suspense: “The Card Counter” A Horror Crime Fiction Detective Murder Mysteries book as part of Conspiracy Thrillers with Serial Killers’:

“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.”

“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.”

Notorious explorer André Lefebvre has too many reasons not to take a wife. He’s launching a western expedition deep into untamed lands—a perilous journey that no gentlewoman could possibly survive. Forced to exchange vows with a King’s Girl in order to receive royal consent, he intends to leave his wife-of-convenience safely behind.

Crossing In Time: An Edgy Sci-Fi Love Story (Between Two Evils Book 1) by D. L. Orton

If someone took everything you live for, how far would you go to get it back?When offered a one-way trip to the past, Isabel sacrifices everything for a chance to change the rapidly deteriorating present–and see her murdered lover one last time. When she arrives twenty years in the past, buck naked and mortally wounded, she has 24 hours to convince a stunned but enraptured nineteen-year-old to change their future. Definitely easier said than done, as success means losing him to a brainy, smart-mouthed bombshell (her younger self), and that’s a heart breaker, save the world or not.This offbeat tale is about falling madly in love when one is too cynical for such things, letting go of pessimism when it’s the last life jacket on a sinking ship, and racing against the clock when one doesn’t have the proper footwear. It’s a coming-of-age story for old fogeys, a how-to-make-love guide for diehard celibates, and a laugh-out-loud tragedy with a hopeful twist.
