How main character felt? 3 evidence. He was scared, angry, frustrated. He couldn't figure out who the killer was. And he couldn't control the crowd. He couldn't understand why his mother committed the murders.
Time period? No year was given although I don't think this was crucial to the story and could have been set in any time period.
Favorite character? Patrick was my favorite. His whole life seemed to be like one lie after another and I felt really bad for him. The author did a good job with the portrayal of him as the head of Evergreens.
Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author.
