Crime writer Robert Graysmith, whose books include "Zodiac" and "The Sleeping Lady," has been working on a book about the Unabomber for two years. "I'm always fascinated with manhunts," the author says.

Graysmith's agent, who doesn't want his name known because he doesn't want to play hide-and-seek with the Unabomber, is getting ready for a book auction.

Graysmith is optimistic that the bomber will be caught soon. "By the time we get this done," he said, "they're going to have him."
