Author Talk: Greg Dillon

January 12 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join Greg Dillon as he discusses his book, “The Thin Blue Lie: An Honest Cop vs. The FBI”.

When Greg Dillon is assigned to a federal fugitive task force in Connecticut, he inadvertently uncovers a pattern of misconduct and falsified affidavits. After reporting his concerns to the politically connected but incompetent chief state’s attorney, the whistleblower finds himself a target of reprisal. Investigated, transferred, demoted, and threatened, Dillon hires an attorney, and–with the assistance of legendary whistleblower Frank Serpico–takes on both the state of Connecticut and the Department of Justice in federal court, resulting in an explosive verdict and a landmark federal court decision. But then the retaliation continued…

Characters within this non-fiction book include John Bailey, Richard Blumenthal, John Rowland, Dr. Henry Lee and the legendary NY police whistleblower Frank Serpico.

Copies of the book will be available for purchase, with 10% of book sale profits go to Shepherds, supporting two local area high schools (Notre Dame of West Haven, and Kolbe Cathedral in Bridgeport).
