NEW YORK (AP) — The mother of murdered journalist James Foley is writing a book about her son.

Blue Rider Press announced Thursday that it had acquired the memoir by Diane Foley, whose son was a freelance reporter executed publicly by ISIS in 2014. The book is scheduled for early 2017 and is currently untitled.

According to Blue Rider, an imprint of Penguin Random House, the book will include not just the memories of Diane Foley, but also will feature interviews with others who knew him and a critical take on the "shockingly unresponsive U.S. government" response to James Foley's abduction in 2012.

Foley's parents are from Rochester, New Hampshire.
