Regardless of what you think of the outcome of the Casey Anthony trial, would you read a memoir by the assistant state prosecutor in the case? Sales for Jeffrey Ashton's book, which won't even be published until November, are already skyrocketing.
While there are critics of the book, including a columnist on The Stir claiming that publishing it makes Ashton a "dirtbag", the majority of commenters on the post say that Ashton worked hard for justice for Caylee Anthony even though a not-guilty verdict was returned.
Ashton retired right after the trial, after spending decades in public service. The book is to be titled "Imperfect Justice: Prosecuting Casey Anthony".
What do you think of these kinds of memoirs? Is he just out to make a buck off the case?
