The author of 'Fire and Fury' has more inside stories on the Trump administration.

Michael Wolff's 'Siege: Trump Under Fire' comes out June 4, Henry Holt and Company announced Wednesday. 

Like the million-selling 'Fire and Fury,' which came out last year, 'Siege' promises a juicy, behind-the-scenes look at the current White House and a president who is 'volatile, erratic, and exposed.' 

The new book will focus on tensions amid Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into alleged ties between Russian officials and the Trump presidential campaign.

According to Holt, Wolff spoke to more than 150 'sources,' although the publisher declined to say whether any are currently in the administration.

'Fire and Fury' was among the first books to extensively document the ongoing conflicts in the Trump White House.

It portrayed a chaotic White House in Trump's first year as president, based on extensive interviews with Trump's former chief strategist Steve Bannon and others.

Trump claimed Wolff had 'zero access' to him or the White House and tweeted angrily about it - and even threatened to sue, which only increased interest in the book.

It sold more than 28,000 copies in the United States in its first week, according to NPD BookScan.

Wolff himself called his book an 'international political event' in an interview with The Guardian shortly after its publication..

'I got to a truth that no one else had gotten to. Everyone around Trump thinks he's a charlatan, a fool, an idiot and someone ultimately not capable of functioning in this job,' he said.

He also said the president is 'deeply unpredictable, irrational, at times bordering on incoherent, [and] self-obsessed in a disconcerting way.'

Bloomberg estimated that Wolff was likely to earn $7.4 million from Fire and Fury, a figure which his publisher never confirmed or denied.
