Amanda Knox

Signs with Book Agent

Who Repped Barack Obama

12/5/2011 9:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Amanda KnoxThe Amanda Knox story is one step closer to bookstores everywhere -- TMZ has learned, she's signed with a very powerful literary agent in DC. 

According to sources, Amanda recently inked a deal with lawyer/lit agent Robert Barnett -- who has brokered book deals for some of the biggest names imaginable ... Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Hillary Clinton, Sarah Palin and Dick Cheney ... to name a few.

Our sources say Amanda's Italian ex-BF Raffaele Sollecito -- who was also convicted and then exonerated in the murder of Meredith Kercher -- has signed with a book agent of his own ... Sharlene Martin, famous for brokering deals for several NY Times bestselling authors.

Somewhere down the chain there are replies that reference, "she reminds me of a Manson girl" BINGO! She has that cold, distant look about her with a tiny bit of smug thrown in, just like that cult that followed Manson. - Stepfordish.

none of us know for certain what went on...i heard she was doing yoga, not cartwheels while in custody...however she gave me the creeps the first time i saw her with her boyfriend making out at the murder scene...normal reaction of an innocent woman would be quite different, her other roommates said she was acting strange flirting with her boyfriend while at the police station, and they believed she was guilty of something too..personally i think she knew much more...but none of us will ever know the truth...that is until she does something crazy again, they ALWAYS do and she is quite young....to all the creeps on here wanting to 'do her' regardless of her guilt...you are pathetic morons, please get cut your rocks off before you breed!

The book will be a tragic story of what can go wrong in a foreign country. At least the appellate court got it right and released the 2 innocent defendants. Hopefully, the murderer/necro rapist Rudy Guede will at least serve his remaining sentence.

There is no proof she even left her boyfriends apartment the night of the murder. All evidence to the contrary was disproven during the appeals trial. She was coerced to falsely accuse her friend and boss by the police. Once they realized a mistake had been made they tried to blame the murder on Amanda. Even drastically reducing the sentence of the real murder, Rudy Guede, when he lied and blamed her.

@53 Scott... There's more evidence she left the apartment that night than that she stayed. As a matter of FACT, Raffaelle's first statement was that she left and returned several hours later.

Amanda Knox is a wart on the ass of society. Anyone who reads this book is no better.

Can't wait to read the book. A totally innocent person victimized by a mentally deranged prosecutor and an italian media that makes our truth bending rags look like the word of gospel. Should be an incredible story from her point of view.

Raffaele was talking about the night before the murder (Halloween) when she went out for several hours. Not the night of the murder.

Since she now has a book deal, I'm starting to think she really was guilty.

Will Amanda confess yet again? Or give the Italian police even more ammunition against her in her upcoming perjury trial? After all didn't she claim the police beat the first confession out of her. Why read the book of a pathological liar expecting to find the truth? Amanda is incapable of telling the truth.
