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 advisors 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.

    " No idea how accurate it is, but it is certainly a quick and compelling read. Especially since it is written by someone who started the book determined to bring Michael Jackson down and prove what a pervert he is, and by the end of his journey, seems to feel fairly confidently that the reports and accusations of molestation were basically lies told for extortion. "

    " Well, ok, it was fun to read this book, if only for the anticipation of perhaps there would be something new and exciting in it... There wasn't, unless you count the author's allegations that Michael Jackson came on to him at their first meeting and that he (MJ) had numerous male lovers coming in and out of Neverland... And that he had wild passionate sex with Lisa Marie... in fact, sex was the main part of that relationship... Hmmm... Ok, this is not impossible, but somehow I just don't see it. And of course Jackson is no longer here to confirm or deny this (my feeling is that he would deny). The book has a few good moments, but not enough to make them memorable and not enough to give it more than 2 stars... My advice? If you are interested in Jackson, then by all means read it, but don't expect too much, and don't pay for it - just get it at the library... "

    " Halperin wrote a great book about Kurt Cobain's murder, so I was very interested to get his take on Jackson. Basically, he says Michael was falsely accused of the criminal sexual conduct and produces a great account of Chandler and Arviso's weak cases. "
