Product Description

Product Description

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kealan Patrick Burke - Genius 10 Mar 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I only came across the Timmy Quinn series on my Kindle and i'll be honest Kealan Patrick Burke has had me hooked! The only downfall is i feel that Kealan Patrick Burke should write something longer, i always feel sad when the book ends. "Vessels" is very descriptive, you feel like your in the chapel and the small pub with Tim. I love this, i find myself trying to imagine the people and the surroundings. Vessels is a great story, Timmy (Tim) is all grown up looking for some kind of solice from his "ghostly life"... Does he find it??

Great book again.

Kealan Patrick Burke you are a genius...

5.0 out of 5 stars too short 23 Feb 2014

I got to the end far too quickly. A really great read. Hints of King and Herbert but at the same time totally unique. Will continue with the series

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad short read 16 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'd read this as part of the series of Timmy Quinn stories and enjoyed it as I'd got into the stories. Not a book to read on it's own - wouldn't make much sense if not read as part of the series.

I downloaded a free copy of Tutle boy onto my kindle, having never read anything by Kealan Patrick Burke before. I was not disappointed. After reading this book I quiclky downloaded the rest of the series. These books are all action with no 'filler', which I find quite boring, It was a refreshing change to read something that does not fill pages with usless junk. The books are brilliant and I would strongly recommend them to anyone that enjoys a bit of a supernatural read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good 3rd book 22 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having read the first books and enjoying them, i decided i needed to carry on with the other books in the series. I felt this book was a little confusing with regards to some of his descriptions of events unfolding and it was quite fast paced to the point where you felt rushed. Nevertheless, i really enjoyed it and the twists were very good. Just when you think you've figured it out, it turns in another direction. I have purchased the last 2 books and can't wait to get started!

Another good read, not quite as compelling as the two previous books but still recommend. You can really imagine the places described as if you to are
a passive onlooker.
