Review: The Card (Van Stone Novel #1) by Jim Devitt

4 Stars
Series: Van Stone Novel
Author: Jim Devitt
Pages: 248
Jack Stone works at a big time biotechnology company, Biotrust. While working on a very sensitive project that could change the world as people know it, he is forced to take a leave of absence in the middle of the project. In the efforts to safe guard his work he unknowingly sets off a series of events that he could have never predicted.

 Van Stone, Jack's son, is floating high as he goes to his first day as a batboy for a major league baseball team. His life is going smooth, new popularity at his high school, his two best friends in the world by his side and his family's loving support. What more could a teenager ask for?

Then the unthinkable happens and his life is turned into a whirlwind of action, confusion, and mystery as unknown assailants makes themselves known. They want something from Van and they aren't about to give up.

Forced to make decisions that put not only him but his family and two best friends in danger as well. Van sets out with his two best friends, Zoe and Fred, to discover the mystery to the card his father gave him.

I loved this book it pulled me in from the very first page and wouldn't let go! It doesn't really have much to do with baseball, yes, that topic is there and in the background but we are mostly centered on Van, his two friends and the mystery that surround the gift from his father Jack, a Moe Berg baseball card.

I would definitely recommend this book for anyone who is looking for some mystery, suspense and a good one-day read.

*I received an Ebook copy of this book for free to review from the author.


  1. Holly, I agree completely. The Book surprised me more than once and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. I can only hope my 17 year old son has as good of as Zoe and Fred. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good ride from a novel
