One of the worlds most popular authors, James Patterson and Little, Brown and Co. announced that a book about Hernandez is scheduled for early 2018.
Patterson will be putting together a collection of true-crime stories in partnership with Investigation Discovery, to come out on the TV network and in print next January. The story will be based on the rise and fall of the former pro football player and convicted killer, who committed suicide in his jail cell last week. Patterson was ”stunned” by Hernandez’s death and wanted to know ”what went wrong.”
A portion of the authors’ proceeds will be donated to education and reading initiatives.
