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.

The Dodger is a truly eye-opening insider's view of a brilliant detective gone to the bad and of cases that have become Australian criminal legend.

Keep in mid - there is heavy bias.


Some say this is deeply disturbing how a great well respected police officer so quickly moved to the dark side and became everything that the badge fights against. What these readers don't know, i that that was the police suyetem at that time, born out by the Woods Royal Commison. At the end of the day we must all be grateful he was one of the few caught and punished for his crimes rather than let go on sickness benefits or resignation where we keep paying for them. In sightful, well written and highly recommended if your interest lie in policing, corruption or just true crime. Just ememeber, the real truth won'tr be found in thes pages
