Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2009-10-13)

Celebrity biographer Halperin focuses on the last 15 years of the late pop star's life and lifts the veil of Jackson's private life. Because Jackson's legal battles over allegations of child abuse are central to the narrative, the book frequently quotes from tedious trial manuscripts. Four-time Audie Award nominee Richard Allen narrates in a confident journalistic style.

Verdict: Recommended for Jackson's fans as well as for those enthralled by celebrity scandals and the machinations of the entertainment industry. Expect the late-October releases of Jackson's final album, This Is It, and the documentary film of the same name to spur interest. An alternate purchase to consider: J. Randy Taraborrelli's Michael Jackson (2009), which also addresses the star's final years.

[The Simon Spotlight Entertainment Ac, published in July, was a No. 1 New York Times best seller.-Ed.] - Phillip Oliver, Univ. of North Alabama Lib., Florence

Book description

In late December 2008, New York Times bestselling author Ian Halperin told the world that Michael Jackson had only six months to live. His investigations into Jackson's failing health made headlines around the globe. Six months later, the King of Pop was dead. Whatever the final autopsy results reveal, it was greed that killed Michael Jackson. Friends and associates paint a tragic picture of the last years and days of his life as Jackson made desperate attempts to prepare for the planned concert series at London's O2 Arena in July 2009. These shows would have earned millions for the singer and his entourage, but he could never have completed them, not mentally and not physically.

Michael knew it and his advisers knew it. Anyone who caught even a fleeting glimpse of the frail old man hiding beneath the costumes and cosmetics would have understood that the London tour was madness. Why did it happen this way? After an intense five-year investigation, Halperin uncovers the real story of Michael Jackson's final years, a suspenseful and surprising thriller.
