As a former Sydney detective himself, journalist Duncan McNab intimately knows the world of Roger Rogerson, Australia's most notorious ex-policeman.
They trained at the same places, rose through the ranks in the same time-honoured way, and served in some of the same divisions - yet Rogerson's career was to turn out very differently indeed.
The Dodger is a brilliant behind-the-scenes account of Rogerson and the police culture that created him. It shines a powerful spotlight on a hidden world of corruption and violence and on the infamous murders of Warren Lanfranchi, Sallie-Anne Huckstepp and the attempted murder of Michael Drury.
It also details the rise and fall of Rogerson's friendship with Arthur "Neddy" Smith - heroin dealer, murderer and one of the most feared villains in Australia.

Comments about The Dodger:
Anyone who has lived in NSW has surely heard of the name 'Roger Rogerson'. His story is as much a part of NSW as it is of the NSW Police Force.
There are choices to make in life and the path you choose will reflect how history remembers you!
