On June 25 2009, the world was rocked by the tragic, shocking news that Michael Jackson – the biggest and most influential music icon since Elvis Presley – was pronounced dead on arrival at a Los Angeles hospital. He was 50 years old. As the news reverberated around the world, it was accompanied by even more shocking and controversial information – some a sickening revelation to Jackson’s millions of fans: that Jackson had died in the care of his personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray – a whole 83 Minutes before Murray put a 911 call in to emergency services.

In this, a comprehensive and truly horrifying account of those crucial minutes – Murray’s frantic attempts to cover his tracks and revive his client before the truth could be revealed – are laid bare. This is a compelling, multi-perspective tracking of all who were involved at the scene, and their part to play in the events surrounding Jackson’s tragic passing. The shocking cocktail of drugs employed to keep Jackson alive, administered by Murray himself; the harrowing and squalid conditions in which this troubled musical genius ended his life, all is 100% accurately described from official court transcripts and documentation. A powerful and compelling account of the brutal truth behind the rumours.
