Jeanine Pirro, the bulldog former Westchester County DA-turned-TV star who went after Robert Durst for the cold-case alleged murder of his wife, is about to drop a book on the topic, and you know you can’t hardly wait.
Titled He Killed Them All: Robert Durst And My Quest For Justice, the the self-touted “definitive insider’s account” will cover all she learned in her years-long investigation of the alleged killer, including topics she explored in HBO’s hit miniseries The Jinx. According to EW, it’s out November 3, which is a damn shame, because was there ever a book more suited to your summer reading list?
The title refers to the shocker final scene of The Jinx, when Durst mumbled to himself on a hot mic, “killed them all, of course,” a rant widely received as tantamount to an admission of murdering his wife, Kathie Durst, as well as his close friend Susan Berman and neighbor Morris Black. He was arrested the day before the episode aired on HBO last March.
“As the former District Attorney who first kicked the Robert Durst beehive,” said Pirro in a statement, “I am thrilled to finally tell the full story behind my mission: I want this man, who became my nemesis, tried and convicted for murder.”
Durst, in the event you could ever forget, is the millionaire son of a Manhattan real-estate magnate whose murky case surrounding the disappearance of Kathie in 1982 became the subject of 2010’s All Good Things, starring Ryan Gosling. During Pirro’s decade-long career as Westchester County DA, she focused on domestic violence and rape cases, making Kathie Durst’s disappearance a focal point for her tenure.
In March, following the conclusion of The Jinx, we shipped Jeanine Pirro and Galveston, Texas, detective Cody Cazalas, who worked together on the Durst case, but nothing has come of that since, to our great chagrin.
