James Comey’s much-buzzed about forthcoming book has finally found a home: The former FBI director will be published by Flatiron Books, a division of Macmillan.

The still-untitled work will not be the tell-all memoir many readers hoped for. Instead, Comey will “explore what good, ethical leadership looks like and how it drives sound decisions,” according to the publisher’s release. “Using examples from some of the highest-stakes situations in the past two decades of American government, Comey will share yet-unheard anecdotes from his long and distinguished career.”

Comey served as Director of the FBI from 2013 to 2017 after being appointed by President Barack Obama. Writes Flatiron in the release, “From prosecuting the mafia and Martha Stewart to helping change Bush administration policies on torture and electronic surveillance to overseeing the Hillary Clinton e-mail investigation as well as ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, Comey has been involved in some of the most consequential cases and policies of recent history.”

The book is due out in Spring 2018.
