Who was behind the murders is easy.
The why's and wherefore's not so much, but were thankfully less twisted than what I had running my head.
I don't understand why his mother kept Patrick drugged though.
Unless she just hated him that much.
Actually, there's not much I fully comprehend about Patricks childhood, mainly why no one noticed anything odd despite his mothers explanations.
There's no romance, but the interaction with the female (whats-her-name LOL) reporter did not come off as believable given what we know of Patricks childhood.
Not the smoothest flowing book I've ever read, but the story is good.
