Scott Peterson Sues to Stop Ex-Lawyer's Book

A former lawyer for the Peterson defense team has a book coming out, explaining why Scott is innocent.  Nevertheless, Peterson is suing to stop publication of the book.  Is this a publicity stunt on the part of Peterson on top of a publicity stunt by his former lawyer?  Why would Peterson object to someone arguing that he is innocent?  Of course, if the book is really unauthorized, it is a disgrace--lawyers should not write about their current or former clients without permission.

This is pure speculation and should not be taken as reflecting knowledge of the facts: I see Geragos, Peterson's losing trial attorney, represents him in the lawsuit to stop the book. Perhaps this is more about Geragos' interests than Petersons?
