#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER In late December 2008, Ian Halperin told the world that Michael Jackson had only six months to live. His investigation into Jackson`s failing health made headlines around the globe. Six months and a day later, the King of Pop was dead. The planned London concerts 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 50 year old 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, New York Times bestselling author Ian Halperin uncovers the real story of Michael Jackson``s finals years.
