Profiled on ABC's The View, Good Morning America, and dozens of other national outlets, The Last Days of Dead Celebrities captured our imagination with its intelligent, intimate reporting.

John Lennon, Lucille Ball, Orson Welles, Ted Williams, John Denver -- these are just a few of the fifteen celebrities profiled here, each passing in a way that was as unique and distinctive as the life of the individual. Some slipped quietly into the night -- Welles died peacefully in bed with his typewriter still balanced on his stomach -- while others met a more shocking and violent end, as did Lennon and Tupac Shakur.

Working with an extraordinary level of access, exclusive material, and the cooperation of the stars family and friends, Mitchell Fink sets the record straight on these very human, very vulnerable public figures.
