The Bond of Blue is a tribute to my father, Francis P. Quinn who was a Buffalo, New York Police Officer.
The main story in my memoir is a non-fiction account of my father’s life through my eyes, with my voice. The story takes you back to his upbringing with his father, Frank P. Quinn who was also a Buffalo Police Officer. It then spans through my father’s career with BPD, his life with our family, his passing and beyond.
At the end of the memoir is a separate fictional story of What Might Have Been, regarding an actual homicide of an infant boy that my Grandfather was investigating in 1946.
The story showcases the love of family, respect for the law enforcement officers, especially the Buffalo Police Department and the bond of blue that connects them.
