Amanda Knox has struck a deal with Blair and Obama’s book agent to tell her murder trial story
Amanda Knox is to bring out a tell-all book about her murder trial after hiring a top lawyer and literary agent to negotiate a publishing deal.
The agent, named as Robert Barnett, has been used by President Obama and Tony Blair in the past and negotiated some of the biggest deals in publishing history.
He will ‘represent her in discussions with book publishers who have expressed an interest in Amanda writing a book,’ says a spokesman of the family.
‘Mr Barnett will also assist Amanda and her family in evaluating other opportunities.’
Amanda Knox's tell-all account will offer her take on the events leading up to Meredith Kercher’s death in Italy and will focus heavily on her experiences in prison.
Her family is said to have spent nearly £650,000 on the court proceedings, but media experts believe the memoirs could earn her a seven figure amount.
Knox, who served four of the 26-year sentence before she was finally released, kept a diary whilst in jail accounting all the events that were taking place.
Raffaele Sollecito, her Italian ex-boyfriend and freed co-defendant, is also planning to write a book of his account of the events.
