“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 was given an opening on an epic scale with the hugely popular hit Dog Eat Dog. It is the first of three separate and unrelated books that occupy the shared universe of Yellow Dawn, sitting alongside successful, eerily haunting The Black Lake and the tense, slow-burning thriller of The Social Club.
In the wake of a cataclysmic event ten years ago (Yellow Dawn), Mikhail Drobná and Carlos Revira are two survivors, both hungry for money and power, and fuelled by a desire to carve their names onto this new world. One provides services of violence and protection for powerful corporate criminals in the Living City of New York; the other is a renegade intelligence agent forever running from the demons of his past. Both men are strangers until events bring them face to face in a bloody confrontation.
Complex politics, private armies, corruption and murder on a shocking scale this book spins from the ruins of Europe to the desperate heartland of a fragmented America. The size of the story is vast but the focus is tightly entwined around the raging emotions of these two men. Will they work together or will bitter rivalry lead to their destruction? Meanwhile something terrible has stepped into the new shadows of the darkened Earth. A chilling horror from beyond the stars and it has its own plans for Mikhail Drobná and Carlos Revira.
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.
The former Creative Director of Cunning, Floyd Hayes, described Dog Eat Dog as “the best Sci-Fi Horror I’ve read in ten years.” Although the first novel to be set in the world after Yellow Dawn, Dog Eat Dog builds on another five novels that take place before Yellow Dawn ever happened; there is a solid, well-defined universe for readers to engage with.
This is novel of grand vision, character depth and nerve-popping tension
