(Newser) – The DC madam may have committed suicide last week to avoid jail, but her story lives on. Literary agents are discussing doing a documentary on Deborah Jeane Palfrey, the New York Post reports, and have lined up biographer C. David Heymann to write a book about the sex industry, with Palfrey as the focus. "Perhaps her life won't have been taken in vain," said agent Marianne Strong.
