NEW YORK, June 23, 2015 – Gallery Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, will publish HE KILLED THEM ALL: Robert Durst and My Quest for Justice by Jeanine Pirro, it was announced today by Jennifer Bergstrom, Publisher.
The New York Post exclaimed “Jeanine Pirro emerges as the true hero of The Jinx” (referring to the popular HBO documentary on Robert Durst). Pirro is the former Westchester County (NY) district attorney who reopened the 1982 Kathleen Durst cold case in 2000 and has been on a crusade to convict Robert Durst ever since. In HE KILLED THEM ALL, Pirro will take readers through the twists-and-turns of Robert Durst’s bizarre life and the trail of victims he left in his wake. She makes her case against Durst beyond a shadow of a doubt, combining her own research and exclusive interviews to reveal stunning, previously unknown information about the crimes he is accused of committing.
“As the former District Attorney who first kicked the Robert Durst beehive, I am thrilled to finally tell the full story behind my mission: I want this man, who became my nemesis, tried and convicted for murder,” said Pirro.
Bergstrom said, “Anyone who watched The Jinx was riveted by Jeanine Pirro’s role in the case. Her book will be the definitive insider’s account of the true crime story that has captivated the country.”
Jeanine Pirro is the former district attorney of Westchester County, where she started the first domestic violence unit in a prosecutor’s office in the US. She is an Emmy Award winner, a legal analyst for Fox News, and the host of Fox News Channel’s “Justice with Judge Jeanine,” as well as the author of several books, including To Punish and Protect: Against a System That Coddles Criminals.
Bergstrom acquired US, Canada and Open Market rights from David Vigliano at AGI Vigliano Literary. Simon & Schuster Audio will publish an audiobook. Mitchell Ivers, Vice President and Senior Editor at Gallery Books, will edit the book. HE KILLED THEM ALL will be published on November 3, 2015.
