Garry Rodgers is a retired serious crimes detective with the “Royal Canadian Mounted Police.” He has also worked for the “British Columbia Coroners Service,” where he for the most part did unexplained and sudden death investigations.

In his younger years, he trained Emergency Response Teams for the RCMP and was a sniper for the “British Special Air Services.” Rodgers is also a recognized expert witness on the operation and identification of firearms for Canadian courts.

He is now best known as a bestselling crime fiction novelist who has often been sandwiched between the likes of Dean Koontz and Stephen King on the bestselling charts.

He published “No Witnesses to Nothing” his debut novel in 2012 and has never looked back since. The work was inspired by a true story in which a ton of people believed that there had been a paranormal event. Garry now has at least eighteen titles to his name and continues to write.

After achieving a lot of success with his debut novel on Amazon, Garry Rodgers continued publishing under the Amazon KDP platform. It was in 2020 that he really came into his own during the pandemic. Despite the gloom and doom of the lockdown, he managed to have his best year as a writer.

It was during this time that he decided on a hybrid model and got out from being Amazon exclusive and began partnering with “Nook,” “Apple” and “Kobo” too.

By the end of the year, his works had been downloaded more than 150000 times and were sold in more than a hundred countries across the world, as he became an international bestselling author.

At some point, he began to blog at “DyingWords,” which he has since grown to become a very popular website that gets up to a million hits every year. The blog has been known as a place where Garry shares his thoughts on writing, death, and life.

Over the years, he has penned more than four hundred posts ranging from analyses of high-profile death cases, and rants on bureaucratic stupidity. He has also ghostwritten opinion eds on “Huffpost” and became a regular contributor on “The Kill Zone.”

Aside from writing blogs and books, Garry Rodgers has also become a content producer in the film industry.

He is the founder of the “Twenty-Second Century Entertainment” company where he does script planning, and screenplays in addition to consulting on specialties such as forensic applications, police procedures, and realism in characterization and dialogue.

Garry also appears as an on-camera resource in non-scripted podcasts and documentaries. Outside of his crime writing, he also has qualifications as a boat skipper, as he has a Marine Captain Ticket since he took a Transport Canada course and passed all the exams.

As a certified boat skipper, he is qualified to run luxury yachts, tugs, small ferries, and seiners. Nonetheless, outside of working on whale-watching tourist boats, he does not get involved in commercial watercraft driving. He just loves spending time in the sea around Nanaimo on Vancouver Island in British Columbia Canada.

Garry Rodgers’s novel “In The Attic” tells the story of Maria, who is terrified that a psychopath is going to kill her.

Her death at the hands of Billy Ray Shaughnessy has been prophetically foretold and it seems that this is about to come true. Everything comes to a head when her ex-boyfriend kidnaps and hides her in the attic for two days before he chops her and her new lover to death with an ax.

It had all begun with Maria reporting a violent knife-point sexual assault crime committed by Billy Ray her ex-boyfriend one Friday afternoon. The police sprung into action on the weekend and roped in her friends trying to find Billy so that things would not escalate. They failed in their efforts as Maria was ultimately killed.

It is a work inspired by a true crime story that is an unforgettable, shocking, and intense psychological crime thriller that the author worked on while working as a homicide detective.

The work is also told from the perspective of the killer through his homicidal, psychotic, and lyrical thoughts. It is a mind-twisting, lightning-paced psychological ride that suspends you in a six-day investigation.

It provides access to an anti-social and psychopathic mind that was ultimately diagnosed as one of the most extreme cases of mental disorder by forensic psychiatrists.

“Under the Ground” by Garry Rodgers is one true crime fiction work that finds inspiration from a true homicide the author worked on. The psychological thriller follows the story of Kristen Madsen, an eighteen-year-old troubled girl.

She had last been seen with Esa Raasanen her former boyfriend on the southwest coast of Canada on Vancouver Island. The police employ their usual techniques to try to resolve the mystery of the disappearance but this fails, resulting in a very complex criminal undercover operation.

Esa the boyfriend soon finds himself sucked into the shadowy world of organized crime run by “The Boss,” a very shadowy figure even in that world. Ultimately, they get to the truth by making use of sophisticated psychological manipulation and a well-developed sting operation.

“Under the Ground” sweeps the reader into the depths of an abusive relationship full of emotional turmoil to the high-roller lifestyle of criminals who prey on Esa’s psychopathic, lustful, brutally violent, greedy, and ignorant personality.

With focused purpose and skillful handling, the lead undercover operator comes up with an ingenious trap for Esa, which he can only escape by confessing about what happened to Kristen Marsden.

Garry Rodgers’s novel “Beside The Road” is another thrilling work that is inspired by a true crime. It opens with a decomposing and unidentified body found dumped down an isolated bank next to a remote road on Vancouver Island.

This would become one of the most bizarre and baffling homicide cases that Garry Rodgers ever had to deal with. The case is then titled “Beside The Road,” even as the investigation team at the Serious Crimes unit does everything to try to find out the real identity of “John Doe” in the case.
The work shows how leading-edge forensic techniques are developed and how police procedures work. We get insights into creative stimulations, informants, major media involvement, paid agents, digital recreations, and wiretaps that result in the resolution of criminal mysteries.

The work also includes good old-fashioned police work that includes operating in teamwork, taking action on tiny details, and conducting skilled interviews.

It is a tragic tale full of suspense that ultimately ends in a shocking twist you will never see coming.
