Mark Madoff's Widow Writes Book

Stephanie Mack Madoff, the wife and widow of Mark Madoff, has been the only other Madoff to write a book and tell her story. She released a book earlier this month, "The End of Normal: A Wife's Anguish, A Widow's New Life," released earlier this month by Blue Rider Press.

Bruce Hector, 68, a victim of the Madoff scheme, said he felt sympathy for the Madoff family and said their claims of innocence and ignorance of Madoff's fraud scheme seemed credible.

"The family has to live with their name the rest of their life," Hector, a physician, said. "The Madoff name is going for the remainder of this century to be associated with scandal. And those kids have got to live with that. I can sympathize with that. If they make a little money on a book, who cares."

Another Madoff victim, Neil Friedman, said he was also more concerned with the "injustice that victims have been subjected to by the trustee, Securities Investor Protection Corporation, and the government."

"I believe that the family, if innocent, has the right to make money telling their story in a book," Friedman wrote in an email to ABC News.

ABC News' John Berman, Melia Patria and Nikki Battiste contributed to this report.
