  1. I’m confused about the ending…did Patch Shoot and kill Matthew, and then did McCluskey shoot and kill Patch ?? Or did Patch shoot Matthew and then Patch finally went over the edge into madness ?? Or did Patch turn with the gun and McCLuskey shot him ?

    • Disappointing ending. I re-read the last 2 chapters thinking I missed something. I agree with the other posts. Who killed who? Did Matthew really get Patrick fired? Was the last chapter supposed to be Patrick’s last thoughts before he died? Frustrating. Also, it bothered me how often McCluskey referred to Hannah as “Aitch” every other line in the book.

  2. I am also very confused and disappointed in the ending. An anticlimax to the previous action without a clear picture of what happened. Same questions as above. I really liked the book until the .. pretty bad ending!

  3. Final chapter: Why was Patch meeting Hannah at a restaurant (as opposed to being incarcerated) and why did she need to explain how she ate her steak when, a) they’d been married for some years and, b) he’d eaten steak off her body early in the book?

  4. Can you explain the ending ?
    Patch shoots and kills Matthew and then the cop shoots Patch.
    he lives and gets back with his wife. Why doesn’t he end up in jail.

    Ending is way too confusing !!!
