Former FBI Director James Comey has signed a book deal with a major New York publisher to write a memoir that looks at the guiding principles that shaped Comey’s career.

According to a report by The New York Times, Comey has signed a deal with the New York publisher Javelin.

The report comes a month after reports that publishers were willing to offer Comey tens of millions for a tell-all book.

According to the Times report, Comey was originally reluctant to accept initial offers but decided to pen a book detailing more than just the major events of his career.

“It’s a book about leadership and his search for truth, informed by lessons and experiences he’s had throughout his career, including his recent experiences in the Trump administration,” Matt Latimer, a partner with Javelin told the New York Times.

“It will speak to a broader desire in our country for more ethical leadership.”
