Was Michael Jackson Murdered? You Be The Judge is a work of non-fiction based on the life and premature death of the titular pop icon, penned by author and filmmaker Everett Watson. During the filmmaking process, Watson’s investigation and gathering of evidence prompted the creation of this book, which carefully chronicles the events surrounding the death of pop star Michael Jackson. Examining people, practices, medicines, social relationships and the like, we discover a chapter by chapter approach to the potential that his apparent accidental or suicidal death was in fact a carefully planned act of premeditated murder.

Whatever you believe in the mass of conjecture, suspicion, and mystery that surrounds the untimely and shocking death of the King of Pop, author Everett Watson’s work weaves a fascinating narrative towards the potential of an intentional crime deep in the heart of the intimate goings-on. Watson writes well on the subject, with a clear passion for the investigation and the artist himself, and displays a wide and varied knowledge of all the media coverage and facts which were released after MJ’s death. The formatting of the book is exceptional and makes it very easy to read and become interested in, with visual aids such as screenshots from media outlets and images which illustrate the author’s points more clearly. The chapters build up a convincing and intriguing argument that will not suit all readers’ tastes but is certainly very well constructed, making Was Michael Jackson Murdered? You Be The Judge a compelling read from start to finish.


The review is broad and covers all avenues that leads to the death of Michael Jackson. It is what I wanted and expected in the review.
