Signal 13 Video Interview Series with Gary McLhinney Author of Bleeding Blue


Gary McLhinney came from a family of firefighters but he chose a different path. McLhinney wanted to be a Baltimore City Police officer. He loved the job and the friends he met along the way. He recently wrote a book, Bleeding Blue, about the rewards and challenges that come with the job. Bleeding Blue, about a police officer’s life on the streets of Baltimore, is available HERE on Amazon. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Bleeding Blue were donated to Signal 13.
