In the latest book in the multimillion-selling Killing Series, Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard tell the larger-than-life stories of Elvis Presley, John Lennon, and Muhammad Ali.

The King is dead. The Walrus is shot. The Greatest is no more.

Elvis Presley, John Lennon, and Muhammad Ali. These three icons changed not only the worlds of music, film, and sports, but the world itself. Their faces were known everywhere, in every nation, across every culture. And their stories became larger than life—until their lives spun out of control at the hands of those they most trusted.

In Killing the Legends, Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard explore the lives, legacies, and tragic deaths of three of the most famous people of the 20th century. Each experienced immense success, then failures that forced them to change; each faced the challenge of growing old in fields that privilege youth; and finally, each became isolated, cocooned by wealth but vulnerable to the demands of those in their innermost circles.

Dramatic, insightful, and immensely entertaining, Killing the Legends is the twelfth book in O’Reilly and Dugard’s Killing series: the most popular series of narrative history books in the world, with more than 18 million copies in print.


  • Than you Bill

    Fabulous writing
  • Another fascinating Killing book

    By BirdoWorky
    I loved this book. I have really enjoyed the entire killing series, and this book is right up there with the rest of them. It was incredible to get the behind the scenes look into these three icons. Although tragic in the end, each of them gave so much to the world. I recommend this book to anyone looking for the real story of their three lives.
  • Killing series

    Excellent read on these three significant individuals. Have read everyone of Killing series(some 2 or 3 times) and look forward to next book.
  • It fits

    By Glusupportsux
    It was good but not a lot of new info but it was enjoyable
  • Disappointed

    By Bill 2003
    I eagerly anticipated this books release. I am very disappointed. It does not really give a good background and account of their lives. I was wanting more, but there was no more.
  • Fast read

    By Jackiedo123
    I know the stories of Lennon and Elvis fairly well, but O’Reily usually throws in bits of information that may be unknown to the casual fan. Found a couple errors, but that doesn’t take away from Bill’s storytelling. Looking forward to Ali’s story. I recommend this book and any of Bill and Mr. Dugard’s books.
