My new book, which will be released in August, is called 'Timeless: Love, Morgenthau, and Me.' It's an intimate memoir about my husband, Robert Morgenthau, NY's former DA for 35 years, and me; the successes, trials, adventures, both traumatic and hilarious, of our marriage. It also gives inside information about my husband's most famous cases - The Central Park Jogger, Astor Elder Abuse, BCCI, Tyco, Goetz and others.
