Rod Logan is an architect who is constantly tormented by his past. After returning from Southeast Asia, flashbacks of horrific events during his time as a Navy SEAL contribute to, but are not the sole source of, his inner turmoil. Desperately seeking to put his troubled past behind him, Rod embarks on a business trip to San Francisco.
Once in California, Rod comes face-to-face with the one woman able to turn him to jelly-his ex-wife Lena. His head whirls at the thought of being hurt again by the woman who wounded him so badly in the past, while simultaneously trying to resolve his inner plight. Rod's dilemma becomes even more complicated after discovering that his association with Lena leads him to his true destiny. But knowing the truth is one thing-surviving it is something else.
Rod and Lena bravely set out to stop the efforts of the sinister cult leader, Mr. Kazan. A man who will stop at nothing to see his plans to fruition, Kazan has surrounded himself with a highly trained contingent of willing minions. From kidnapping and burglary to ritualistic sacrifices and murder, The Vessel is a devilishly exciting tale.
