ID SK would've been her case I just couldn't help I was on your show several times doing commentary.
About the actual DSK case and sort everywhere when people wanted to know.
What really happened that I know anymore and then have been reported in the papers so what I thought I could do religion to Avant and no it shouldn't.
But what I thought I could do is take the insider's look at what was happening.
In those meetings why couldn't the accuser get a story out that was straightforward -- made sense -- why couldn't we trust which she was saying.
I really want to get inside that investigation took about three weeks in my book which is fast pace there.

The woman that can be believed but there is DNA in the room.
Bernard and then Yasser Arafat -- direction of the conversation.
There's a lot of the physical evidence in the room -- That haven't suggests that there was sexual encounter proves that this is excellent counter.
I don't -- love affair it happened in twenty minutes so but I also don't think that this 58 year old man whose.
Kind of pig in his private life.
Came out of the bathroom and grabbed this woman 3000 room suite where she had an opportunity to leave the room.
So something's missing for me at the beginning of that encounter.

In this fictional narrative of what that might have been.
More war what did you come over -- a book or do we have to read it to find out you have to reach its -- sorry.
I'll tell you later -- Since they know you what it is but no I don't censor and I know that a special -- like -- people were rated because.

Murders the south of France the restaurant world in new York and then our -- restaurant promote find me speak.
For both domestic usually it's -- and so it's got a lot of fun elements and then the background is the investigation of this familiar.

And -- section.
Bob -- -- became.
A -- books trashy books.

This conduct had been going on for so long.
