Dermot's fate is not yet sealed I believe because he obviously got off too easy. Well lets expect more from the other series.

I totally agree with you. My fingers are crossed though, I don't want to believe the author will 'make' Dermot go free just like that.

Hehehe...
I agree...
I guess it's part of the author's arrangements in the next series.
Dermot was evil; he can't just go like that.
I'm feeling he'll have a comeback plot in the next book where he'll pay dearly for all he did.

Oh yeah, I think that he deserved much more than what he got. Based on the ending though, I think that there is a strong implication of a 2nd book. I hope we get the answers we want there! :)

Dermot is someone where I would have expected a horrific fate to befall him. However, maybe he will crop up again in a future novel.

I want to belive that will happen too.

I agree also that he got off too easily. He must pay heavily for his crimes. I hope June Gilliam would start another series where he gets to suffer so much he would wish he wasn't born.

Does anyone else wish that Dermot had faced a tougher fate? I wish he'd have been dragged into court, either in Ireland or back in the US, and been forced to explain himself to a judge/jury. I feel he got off too easily for what he had planned. Thoughts?
It did seem a little rushed. And the cannibalism thing just hung out there, too. When a bad guy is that bad, I love to see them come to a justice that people can celebrate!

We are left wondering what happened to Dermot at the end. I would have preferred justice served. At the end, he is portrayed in a better light than the actual killer who was hired to do the job(s). We have a level of sympathy for him, seeing that he wanted to create the theme park for his mother. I think this part would have been better resolved.

Yes, I agree he just left , but at least his dad got caught. That was kind of wierd that his dad was the assassin. I would think he would be arrested for murder inIreland because that is where it happen, even if he didn't directly do it. He just has a lot of money to get away with it. Maybe he'll resurface in the next book and Bridget can get retro justice for his evil deeds.😊
I thought it was a little random that it was his dad that did the killing too.

The author indicates that the police are looking for Dermot. As he was behind the murders, this ends up being a loose end that doesn't satisfy readers' sense of justice. I applaud Hillary's confidence in the police force, but it does make readers steam to see the villain get away instead of being behind bars! Maybe Dermot and Seamus will meet again in the future???
