Roger Rogerson: From Decorated Policeman To Convicted Criminal (Australian True Crime) by Duncan McNab
Paperback: The verdict is guilty.
On 20 May 2014, former New South Wales police officers Roger Rogerson and Glen McNamara murdered student Jamie Gao in cold blood. Both have been found guilty of murder and possession of 2.78 kilograms of methamphetamine, and sentenced to life imprisonment.
But this was not Rogerson's first trial or conviction. Once one of the most highly decorated police officers in New South Wales, he was dismissed from the police force in 1986, and jailed twice.
That was just the tip of the iceberg.
This is the eye-opening account of Rogerson's life of crime - policing it and committing it - and reveals the full story of one of the most corrupt and evil men in Australia, and the events that led inexorably to the chilling murder of Jamie Gao in storage unit 803.
For years, it was almost heresy to say or think that Roger Rogerson was anything other than a good bloke.
Roger Rogerson: From Decorated Policeman To Convicted Criminal (2016) is dedicated to those who had the guts to disagree.
About the author: Duncan McNab is a former police detective, private investigator, investigative journalist and media adviser. He was in the Gao murder trial courtroom for eighteen weeks and has been following Rogerson's career - on both sides of the law - for over 30 years. Quite simply, he knows more about Roger Rogerson than anyone else - alive.
