“Atmospheric and Creepy” – The Guardian on The Black Lake
“…a modern noir style mixed in with a heavy dose of brutal action adventure!” – Reflexiones Finales on Dog Eat Dog
David J Rodger’s vision of a post-apocalyptic world continues to expand with The Social Club – following the success of the action-packed Dog Eat Dog and eerily haunting tale of The Black Lake. All three books are separate and unrelated stories that occupy the shared universe of Yellow Dawn.
In the wake of a cataclysmic event ten years ago (Yellow Dawn), London survives like other isolated pockets of civilisation, but only just. Senior Verifier Jadon Purgo is a member of the Group, responsible for maintaining law and order and the status-quo of power and control for those who have grabbed the reigns of authority.
There is a dark and terrible secret at the heart of the Group’s history in London. One that is to be protected at all costs. When the naked body of a man washes up on the banks of the Thames, the brutal and shocking truth threatens to emerge. Purgo plays a dangerous game of cat and mouse with those determined to stop him, unaware of the ultimate price he will be forced to pay if he succeeds.
David J. Rodger is a British author of science fiction dark fantasy with eight novels under his belt. He is also the creator of Yellow Dawn – The Age of Hastur, an RPG that blends Cthulhu Mythos and Cyberpunk themes into a post-apocalyptic setting. His books are often described as intense, character driven, near-future thrillers. Compared to Ian Rankin / Colin Dexter and James Ellroy with a dose of Stephen King darkness, Rodger’s work crosses many boundaries to deliver a new and exciting fusion of ideas and genres. You never quite know what waits around the next corner. All his books are stand-alone but support each other as part of a consistent shared universe allowing you to build a deeper knowledge with every story.
With The Social Club the tension racks up to lock you inside of the claustrophobic prison that London has become. Surrounded by the Infection and a raft of enemies who want to see the Group torn down, there is no chance of a life beyond the heavily defended borders of the city. And yet the very existence of what is left of London is now at stake.
This is a slow-burn thriller with an explosive ending.
