Although the last act comes very late into the book (20-odd pages from the end and they still don't know whodunit) and wraps up quickly, protagonist Tom Caton is a well-drawn sympathetic leading man and is surely good for a few more adventures.
Since the book is of the publish-on-demand kind you may need to overlook distractions from occasional typos in the text, but all in all The Cleansing is a fitting addition to the police procedural genre, and Bill Rogers is a new author worthy of our support.
The procedural aspects of the police operation were covered well and the plot, though straining credibility in places, showed good planning. Not the most dynamic or gripping novel I have read this year, but I was sufficiently impressed to look for his other books.
The endless procedural padding makes a comparatively short story into a lengthy tedium.
The characters are varied and refreshing with Tom Caton being far from the stereotypical hard drinking and womanising DCI which is the usual fare in this role.
The story opens as expected with a murder but this one is a bit different with the perpetrator in fancy dress and making little attempt to hide their deed, this causes the panic button to be pressed in the fear of an unbalanced potential serial killer being on the loose, a profiler is brought in and the storyline develops at a fast pace and the team are well developed as individual characters.
As the investigation and profiling continue so does the killer moving towards his own end-game with a fitting finale played out to a large audience.
I would definately recommend this book, it helped me to pass a couple of long train trips very quickly indeed.
This is a really well written first book in a series. The characters are well developed and likeable. Despite there being quite a lot of characters introduced I didn't feel like I lost track of them at all. Am now going to download the second in the series!
