Frey Book Deal

Frey Signs Book Deal
By  | 

Scott Peterson's former mistress is going to write a book.

Regan Books has announced that it has signed a deal with Amber Frey. The book is expected to go on sale January fourth.

Frey's attorney says the book will be a "story of courage in crisis" that "will inspire others who have been betrayed to fight back for truth and justice."

The attorney declined to say how far along Frey was with the manuscript -- or whether she'd receive help writing it.

Frey is the woman Peterson was romancing on the side while married to his wife, Laci.

During his trial, prosecutors portrayed Peterson as a cheating husband who wanted to murder Laci to escape his marriage.
