The writing is excellent. The storyline is excellent. I could not stop reading this book. I am waiting with baited breath - I *need* to read the rest of this series. That is saying a lot, because I don't think I have ever finished a series. EVER. (I rarely make it to Book 2.) I actually think this is the only book review I've even thought about posting.

You will thoroughly enjoy the writing style. The book flows well, and the wording paints such a clear picture of what is happening that you can *feel* it. Emotionally, physically - it truly is the best book experience I've had. The characters are amazing. You will not *believe* the craziness that goes on in these pages. Just try to guess what will happen next. Keyword: Try.

Put this on your summer reading list immediately...and you may as well put Book 2 on your list for the Fall. You will probably need to set up 1-click just for the books in this series. I did.

(Looking forward to reading others' reviews...)

Cleansing Evil, is a exciting thriller. It immurses you in a world filled with secret agencies and mystery to be uncovered. It left me in chills! Bravo Author Derek Dorr the realism you were able to bring to this story is mystifying!

Cleansing Evil started with a horrific scene that captivated my attention and pulled me straight into the story. I needed to know more. It is the story of Dr. Christian Rinaldi and how he deals with his curse.

We meet Dr. Rinaldi on a train headed from Maine into Boston. Derek Dorr is slowly developing this fascinating character, and then he slaps you across the face with some incredible information. Dr. Rinaldi was a great character. It amazes me how an author can make a character, who by all of our society’s standards, is truly evil, into a likable character.

The story itself is a good one, it is the type of story that makes you ask questions: What is right? What is wrong? Is it acceptable to take another’s life? For the first part of the book it felt like there were two stories going on. The author brought it all together, uniting both of these stories.

Cleansing Evil is an excellent introduction to what should be a fantastic series. It has all of the elements that I look for in a book, such as a flawed hero, horrific crimes, blurred lines between good and evil, and less than human villains.
I am already looking forward to more adventures with Christian and Mick.

*4.5 Stars

I’m still going back and forth after finishing this book- which is good yes? Means it is stuck in my head!

Likes-Intrigued by the main characters. Both Mick and Christian are well-developed and complex characters. There is a great deal of room to grow these two in stories to come. The instant friendship felt genuine, not forced. Having Mick as ex military made it believable that this new situation he finds himself in would not freak him out- too much anyway.

The scenario of secret assassins and “cleansers” is well- written. Who doesn’t love a conspiracy theory?

Now the big meh-I figured out the mystery at about 45%. As in not surprised and then annoyed for the rest of the book. What the killers make fun of is the same tool used to catch them. Christian is supposed to be a savant at reading crime scenes yet he is so blind to all that is happening right under his nose- especially given his own history? Nope, didn’t buy it. Found myself skimming large portions looking for redeeming bits.

As I said I am torn, I think there is quite a bit of growth that is possible with these characters and the story line. This is an interesting start to a new thriller series, here’s hoping the author trusts his stories and readers and stays away from the predictable.

Now I’m a person that is easily startled, scared, and….well my hubby calls me a wimp!! I normally don’t watch any scary or gory movie. I just can’t do it. But I did it…….I read a suspense thriller!! I was pleasantly surprised. Yes, I still covered my eyes at parts….covered the kindle a time or two…. but I still could not put the book down.

There were times when I found myself looking around to see if the TV was on…am I really watching a movie or reading a book! It was that “real” and believable.

The characters are very “deep”. They have their faults, but you still like them. You want to know more and understand more about why they do what they do. These are everyday people that you would see every day. It makes you wonder if you really do know any people like this in real life? hmmmmmm

The story flows well and moves at a very good pace. You will definitely not get bored. You will find this to be a fast read because you won’t want to put it down. Go check it out!!! See what all the talk is about.
The only reason this book did not get a 5 stars was because I didn't cry. I'm a sap....what can I say. I want all emotions in my reads. :)

This book was my second thriller read. I am used to the happily ever afters. This book was so well written. Derek really surprised me. So many details. It creeped me out at a few points but I still kept reading because I wanted, No I needed to know what happened next. I thought I had it figured out as I went along, but in the end I was shocked by what happened. If your looking for a good thriller that you just can't put down then you need to read this book! I can't wait for the next one!!!
