Defending A King ~ His Life & Legacy

MORE THAN a Michael Jackson Biography — AN EMOTIONAL JOURNEY…

Today, in spite of volumes of printed material and a world of cyberspace about Michael Jackson, there is little published information about the real, flesh-and-blood man from first-hand witnesses. Until now.

Revealed in this biography are Michael’s last four mysterious years: where he and his children went, what he did, and how he spent his time.

An in-depth portrayal of Michael Jackson — the global “King of Pop” — Defending A King ~ His Life & Legacy discloses new information and unique insights into this “king of a man.” This book explains his torturous life with an emphasis on his triumphs over his adversities and challenges.

More controversial in life and in death than anyone else, Michael Jackson’s goodness has been mostly ignored. This volume needs to be affixed to the legacy of his genius and greatness.

“Bizarre circumstances demand bizarre behavior.” Dr. Moriarty leads her reader through the maze of stunningly bizarre circumstances in which Michael lived and struggled, through private joys and suffering as a real person … at the absolute pinnacle of human existence.
