Former FBI director James Comey, who was fired last year by President Trump, has a hush-hush memoir coming out next month, and he’ll be in Boston to talk about it.

Axios got a hold of the itinerary for Comey’s tour to promote “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership,” and it includes an appearance at the Back Bay Events Center April 29.

Not a lot is known about Comey’s book, but it’s already Amazon’s No. 1 bestseller in politics and social sciences, law, and biography. Fortune.com reports that the publisher, Flatiron Books, is going to great lengths to ensure that the memoir doesn’t hit the street before its April 17 pub date. The publisher is requiring warehouse workers to sign nondisclosure agreements and using password protection and code names for digital drafts of the book.

Although the book is described as a career retrospective, the expectation is that Comey will shine a light on the Trump White House, though perhaps not in the same dishy way as Michael Wolff in “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.”
