Overview

The third book in the award-winning Timmy Quinn series...

On a remote island off the coast of Ireland, an unpiloted boat drifts ashore, watched by a man to whom the dead are something to be feared…

In a small stone chapel that stands hunkered against the vicious island winds, a woman whispers a frantic prayer to the gathering dark as something pale and dreadful scratches at the window.

A young girl races to the shore to meet her lover and finds something monstrous instead…

And in a confessional, a dead man waits to tell his sins…

A gunshot in a church in Los Angeles leads Tim Quinn halfway around the world and into a nightmare, for on Blackrock Island, he will find love, murder and madness, and discover an earth-shattering truth about the Curtain, and those who hide behind it.

    GREAT WRITING!!

    VESSELS was even better than THE HIDES, which I thought was great. VESSELS is engrossing, well written, and fast paced. I was also highly impressed with the grammar and editing of this PUBIT novel. So many new and self published books lack proper spelling and grammar. I am looking forward to more by this author, especially in the Timmy Quinn series. VESSELS is a ghost story and it delivers! Scary and suspenceful.
