Aug. 13 (Bloomberg) -- An accountant who has publicly blamed imprisoned con man Bernard Madoff for stealing her family's savings has written a book that will disclose a secret she previously withheld -- they once had an extramarital affair.

Sheryl Weinstein's account, "Madoff's Other Secret: Love, Money, Bernie, and Me," will be published Aug. 25 by St. Martin's Press. Inc. and Barnes & Noble Inc. are accepting advance orders through Web site listings that disclose no details about their relationship and say that the author is "to be announced." The author is Weinstein, said John Murphy, spokesman for New York-based St. Martin's.
