Some people were easy to find. Others took hunting and patience. The most difficult was a target who knew she was coming, and he knew.
How could he not? When you backed a predator into a corner, when you took and destroyed all that she loved, when you made a game of ruining lives and sadism for you was sport, but then you failed to kill the predator: You’d better know she was coming back. This was an inviolable law. She wasn’t dead, and so she was coming for him. She had his face, had the name of a city. In the right hands, anything could be mined into so much more. She would find him. Kill him. Simple as that.

Tightly written, fast paced story with an immencely satisfying ending.
THE VESSEL is a single point of view character, and Hillary Huber's performance of Vanessa Michael Munroe was spot on.
I listen while driving and constantly found myself sitting in the car, unwilling to leave to leave the story, when I arrived at my destination. I wish I could have listened to the entire thing in one sitting.
Hillary Huber's portrayal of Vanessa Michael Munore, in this book, and every book in the series, is richly nuanced and extremely well done.
I was still in the middle of reading the hardcopy of The Doll when I thought I would listen to this. I didn't have to finish The Doll as the first few chapters wrap up what happened in that book - this wasn't a bad thing. Nice novella although it is eight hours long. Love Taylor Stevens!
As alway, excellent reader. the story was good. Not as good as the full stories. I had hoped for one of the outcomes to be different, but that said, the end was just fine with me!
Delight in the journey and the struggle on the road to your dreams
I'm a huge fan of books with strong female characters and I was intrigued by this one and by the 1.95 price. Unfortunately the story just never grabbed me and when I was finished I couldn't recall that much about it. Still at the price it's worth taking the risk on.
Continues the Vanessa Monroe mythos perfectly. Loved the tie-in with The Doll and provides a very satisfying outcome for the Doll-Maker
Narrator performance was superb as with all the Monroe audios and adds greatly to the overall enjoyment of the listening experience.
