Publisher's Summary

From the author of the gripping Amazon number-one best-selling supernatural suspense thriller Where the Dead Walk.

When molecular biologist Holly Reilly is forced to go on the run carrying a piece of technology with the potential to change what it even means to be human, she calls the only person she trusts with the skills necessary to keep her alive: her estranged husband Gabriel.

Gabe and Holly soon find themselves caught up in a secret conflict that has raged for centuries, a battle poised to spill into the modern world, threatening chaos and bloodshed.

    "A brilliant story, wonderfully read."
    What did you like most about Vessel?

    The plot - it's both intricate and fast-paced, with a clever back-story that feeds the main narrative at just the right point.


    What other book might you compare Vessel to, and why?

    If I had to, I'd compare it to Dan Brown's novels, only much, much more enjoyable. It's well-written, for a start.


    Have you listened to any of Craig Beck’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No but I might do now.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Well, yes, but I don't like spoilers. The original approach to Jerusalem. And the ending.


    Any additional comments?

    I'd thoroughly recommend this book, genuinely exciting, engaging characters, a fast-paced and witty narrative style, great twists, ably delivered in Audible.

    "Great story"
    If you could sum up Vessel in three words, what would they be?

    Exciting
    Fantastical
    (Easily) believable


    Have you listened to any of Craig Beck’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I've not got any audible narrated by Craig but he did a great job with one so would definitely listen to others that he narrates


    Any additional comments?

    I received this book in an audio format from the author is exchange for an honest review. Thank you John.
    Action packed and fast paced for the majority of the book. The main characters were very likeable and I found myself 'rooting' for them very early on.
    My only (tiny) criticism is that there was a part in the story that went on a bit longer than I thought was necessary and if I had been reading rather than listening I would have skimmed over this part.
    That said, if you enjoy a fast paced thriller you'll like this one. It has the added ingredients of history and conspiracy theories thrown in as well!

    "Another great read. Fast paced and gripping."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Vessel to be better than the print version?


    I haven't read the print version.
    I read the audiobook


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the background story on the Templars. The characters were believable, I felt I could Easily picture the characters and the scenes.


    What does Craig Beck bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    I felt it took the narrator a little time to settle into the story and characters, but once he did he was great.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were many moments in the book I felt emotional for the characters and what they went through.


    Any additional comments?

    Definitely a book worth reading,
    I've also listened to John Bowens chilling supernatural book 'where the dead walk' which I can also recommend.
    I'm looking forward to his next.
