"He (Morton) has made a number of claims that are false and demonstrably so," said Fields, who added that he had read Morton's book, "Clearly the book is actionable, but I'm not commenting on anything to do with legal issues."

In a brief statement on Monday, St Martin's Press spokesman Steve Troha said: "We stand by our book and our author."
