Book about Avery for education or profit?

It has been in the news recently that a prosecutor in the case against Steven Avery is coming out with a book in August. The family of the murder victim seems less than pleased.

The book, which is titled "The Innocent Killer" is apparently supposed to bring some light to the large responsibility of a prosecutor, but one has to wonder if it isn't just based on greed?

Even though there seemed to be a lot of evidence that pointed to Avery as the killer of Teresa Halbach, it certainly seemed like the State did have motive to set him up. If you are not familiar with the story, Steven Avery was wrongfully convicted of rape in 1985 and was imprisoned for a number of years before the Innocent Project proved through DNA that he was not the rapist. He was awarded a large sum of money for his false conviction and imprisonment. It was after that occurred, that he then raped, tortured and murdered Teresa Halbach in 2005.

There was bits here and there that implied that Avery figured he could get away with murder since he had already been falsely convicted, while Avery implied that he was setup and evidence was planted because of the money that he had been awarded by the State.

Either way, I think that any profits made from the case should at least be split with the victim's family.
