This post-apocalyptic crime thriller keeps new fan awake

Sharing positive words

I had an email from somebody who knows somebody reading one of my books. Dog Eat Dog.  A punchy crime thriller set after the post-apocalyptic event called Yellow Dawn. The novel is available in paperback or Kindle from LULU books and  Amazon books & Kindle just click on these links to shop.

Feedback came in over several emails over several days:


“I downloaded Dog Eat Dog the other day and am a little over half way through. I’ve had a hard time putting it down and its cutting into my sleep time, but that’s how it goes when I am reading something good. I’ll probably download some of his other stuff when finished. Jonesy”


“My tablet says I’m through 77% of it now and once again it was almost 2am when I got to bed. The further I get into the story, the harder it is to put down.”


Dog Eat Dog is a post-apocalyptic crime thriller set in the shared universe of David J Rodger after the event called Yellow Dawn

Dog Eat Dog

By David J Rodger


A monster of a book! Packed with action, compelling in its attention to detail and pace, and horror scenes that will leave your heart pounding




“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.

This is novel of grand vision, character depth and nerve-popping tension
