The Thin Blue Lie

The Thin Blue Lie Philadelphia, 1976. The city of Brotherly Love is waging a successful war against crime led by its tough-talking mayor, Frank Rizzo (Paul Sorvino). But a maverick investigative reporter, Jonathan Neumann (Rob Morrow), has heard some troubling rumours: stories of innocent people victimised by a ''goon squad'' of law enforcement officers.

With his reluctant partner, Phil Chadway (Randy Quaid), and a beautiful colleage (Cynthia Preston), Neumann follows a twisting, turning trail of leads pointing to a cache of records documenting hundreds of brutality cases. When Neumann begins to receive death threats, he realises he is periously close to uncovering a corruption scandal -- one that reaches all the way to the mayor's office.

With his time running out, Neumann risks everything to learn the truth -- and break a shocking story that will reverberate through the nation.

Based on Neumann and Chadway's Pulitzer Prize-winning articles, ''The Thin Blue Lie'' crackles with white-knuckle suspense and excitement.
