Publisher's Summary

THE LIFE AND CRIMES OF AUSTRALIA'S MOST CORRUPT COP

Roger Rogerson was a serial killer with a badge.

Australia's most notorious corrupt cop was serving a life sentence for murdering student Jamie Gao in cold blood over 2.78 kg of ice, when he was found unresponsive in his cell. The man they called 'The Dodger' couldn't dodge his own death.

Once one of the most highly decorated police officers in New South Wales, Rogerson would brag of the crims he killed. For too long, the whispers of corruption around him were ignored. But his unholy alliances with heroin dealers and underworld figures would eventually bring about his downfall. Rogerson was finally dismissed from the police force in 1986.

This is the eye-opening updated account of Rogerson's life of crime and how he went from hero cop to ruthless criminal, considered one of the most corrupt and evil men in Australia. Detailing the chilling murder of Jamie Gao in storage unit 803 that led to Rogerson's final incarceration, bestselling author Duncan McNab also shares the stories behind the secrets Rogerson took to his grave.

Fascinating Stuff

Duncan McNab takes a close look at Roger Rogerson, a man who had the skill to be a top cop but who chose to one of the worst. McNab knows his stuff and this is a very compelling listen. Crisply narrated by the excellent Andrew Martin. I breezed through this book and hope more of McNab's work turns up as audiobooks soon. Updated to include Rogerson's passing in January 2024.

Well researched and well narrated

Great story about the Sydney gang wars and over a police officer going bad. I remember a lot of the headlines of the age and this book fills in a lot of the gaps. Highly recommend
