The Cleansing Summary

Introducing Detective Chief Inspector Tom Caton. Christmas approaches. A killer dressed as a clown haunts the streets of Manchester. For him the City’s miraculous regeneration had unacceptable consequences. This is the reckoning. DCI Tom Caton enlists the help of forensic profiler Kate Webb, placing her in mortal danger.

The trail leads from the site of the old mass cholera graves, through Moss Side, the Gay Village, the penthouse opulence of canalside apartment blocks, and the bustling Christmas Market, to the Victorian Gothic grandeur of the Town Hall.

Time is running out. For Tom, for Kate…and for the City.

    Roger Standing, commander of the British Empire and the prime minister's special adviser for education, is murdered. DCI Tom Caton is not short of suspects. But if this is a simple mugging gone wrong then why has MI5 ransacked his apartment, and why is Special Branch disrupting the investigation? And why are the widow and her son taking the news so calmly? Roger Standing was not what he seemed...and something is rotten in the corridors of power. Will the killer strike again?
