The true story of Stamford, Connecticut, a city under the
stranglehold of organized crime, the officials who betrayed the
public trust, and the cop who wore a wire to help bring them
Stamford, CT sits approximately 50 minutes from Manhattan and was the location where summer homes were built by wealthy New Yorkers in the late 19th century. Along with the influx of industry moving out of New York City, came organized crime.
Rogue Town is the true story about a 21-year-old cop who only set out to make a living with the Stamford Police Department to support his growing family. Little did he know what was in store for him.
The story of Vito Colucci, Jr. and his under cover work with the Stamford, CT police force may seem unbelievable to some, but every word is true, every name, and every incident he survived.
Written by well-known true crime author, Dennis N. Griffin, the tales of corruption and danger in Rogue Town, not only from organized crime, but within the department itself, resembles a script for the next mob related movie, or episodes of a popular crime series for television.
To do the right thing and keep honest cops in tact, Vito Colucci went deep under cover, often wearing a wire, to gather necessary information to expose the illegal drugs and gambling operations running rampant in the city, often putting himself and his family in dire danger. The reader is taken back to a day when the good guys and the bad guys meet head on creating the inevitable battle between good and evil.
Retiring from the force, Colucci remains in the public eye as a Private Investigator in several high-profile crimes, as well as appearing as a media analyst on all the major news outlets. He hosts a weekly syndicated radio show, Crime Time, broadcasting each Sunday night on BusinessTalk Network.
