You know the hits and you know the headlines, but do you know the real story? Pour yourself a glass of Pinot and get ready to settle in for the greatest true-crime story in music history, as only best-selling author James Patterson can tell it. Brought to life by exclusive interviews with Lennon’s friends and associates, including Paul McCartney, The Last Days of John Lennon is the thrilling true story of two men who changed history. One wrote indelible songs that enliven our world to this day – and the other ended the beautiful music with five pulls of a trigger.
Imagine - With the Beatles, John Lennon surpasses his youthful dreams, achieving a level of superstardom that defies classification. “We were the best bloody band there was,” he says. “There was nobody to touch us.”
Nowhere Man - Nobody could touch the Beatles except Mark David Chapman, harboring a deadly obsession. Chapman once worshipped his idols from afar, but as his sense of betrayal grows, he edges ever closer. He’s convinced Lennon has misled fans with his message of hope and peace. And Chapman’s not staying away any longer.
(Just Like) Starting Over - By the summer of 1980, Lennon is recording new music for the first time in years, energized and inspired. He can’t wait to show the world what he will do. Neither can Chapman, who quits his security job and boards a flight to New York, a handgun and bullets stowed in his luggage.
The Last Days of John Lennon is the amazing story of John Lennon's extraordinary life and career, from his earliest days up to his last seconds. You’re invited backstage to meet the most profound rock-and-roll genius of all time - and the consummate Nowhere Man who took him from us.
