Ex FBI Director James Comey has inked a multi-million dollar deal to write two fictional crime thriller novels, two years after the release of his last nonfiction book.
The first book, ‘Central Park West,’ is described by Comey as a ‘legal thriller’ and is scheduled to release in spring of 2023.
The book, announced by Comey and Mysterious Press publishers Tuesday, follows an assistant U.S. attorney whose case against the mafia unfolds after the murder of a local politician.
The former FBI director surely pulled from his own experience as both Deputy Attorney General under President George W. Bush, as well as his previous time as the Managing Assistant U.S. Attorney in charge of the Richmond Division of the United States Attorney’s office for the Eastern District of Virginia.
But he is best known for being fired as Director of the FBI by Donald Trump in 2017, allegedly for refusing to end a federal probe into the former president’s alleged ties to Russia.
