‘Incredibly tense and thriller-like . . . I totally recommend it’ LEE CHILD ‘The dialogue is punchy, cinematic . . . we get inside the mind of Patterson’s villain, the delusional Chapman, through periodic chapters from his point of view as he works up the courage to pull the trigger on Lennon’ ‘Pure Patterson- fast-paced, no-frills’ SUNDAY TIMES.The greatest true-crime story in music history. A GLOBAL SUPERSTAR In the summer of 1980, ten years after the break-up of the Beatles, John Lennon signed with a new label, ready to record new music for the first time in years. Everyone was awestruck when Lennon dashed off ‘(Just Like) Starting Over’. Lennon was back in peak form, with his best songwriting since ‘Imagine’. A DANGEROUSLY OBSESSED FAN In the years after Lennon left the Beatles, becoming a solo artist and making a life with Yoko Ono in New York City, Mark David Chapman had become fixated on murdering his former hero. He was convinced that Lennon had squandered his talent and betrayed his fans. In December 1980, Chapman boarded a flight from Hawaii to New York with a handgun stowed in his luggage. He was never going home again. A MURDER THAT STUNNED THE WORLD. Enriched by exclusive interviews with Lennon’s friends and associates, including Paul McCartney, The Last Days of John Lennon is a true-crime drama about two men who changed history. One whose indelible songs enliven our world to this day, and the other who ended the music with five pulls of a trigger.
