Roger Rogerson hasn't been a police officer for more than 20 years. Yet his name makes him the most well-known 'detective-sergeant' in Australia.

He has been the subject of articles, appearances, profiles and books; portrayed in TV dramas; and recorded by covert listening devices at home for months.

Rogerson took up his own pen in prison. Out, he walked the club and pub speaking circuit, where he found a ready audience for his tales of law and mayhem. He now writes for newspapers.

Here, he tells us of:

  • high profile investigations
  • forgotten ones, like when a key from Tassie opened a Sydney murderer's door
  • some of the most interesting dead people he's ever met
  • the hunt for desperados on a deadly robbing spree
  • the bloody night that earned him the award for courageous action
  • meeting a prominent toe cutter
  • besieging the comic Wally and the dangerous Green Man
  • the dogs in a prison he sojourned in
  • bad days in a flattened railcarriage at Granville...
and more...

These untold tales are the ones everyone else has glossed over or ignored, from the horses mouth, for the first time.
