Bill O’Reilly’s new book

KILLING THE LEGENDS
To Be Published By St. Martin’s Press
The latest in the #1 New York Times bestselling series

(New York, NY - June 2022) - Trail-blazing TV journalist Bill O’Reilly, the best-selling author of the Killing series, will add KILLING THE LEGENDS to the roster of record-breaking books that he co-writes with Martin Dugard. This will be the 12th book in the series—following the #1 New York TimesWall Street Journal, and Publishers Weekly bestseller Killing the Killers—nearly all of which became #1 New York Times and national bestsellers. Sales of the series approach 19 million copies worldwide, and have spent more than 340 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. Publication date for KILLING THE LEGENDS is set for September 27, 2022.

KILLING THE LEGENDS explores the lives, legacies, and tragic deaths of three of the most famous people of the 20th century: Elvis Presley, John Lennon, and Muhammad Ali. These three icons changed the worlds of music, film, and sports. Their influence, though, far exceeded the entertainment and athletic fields. These three changed society and culture. They were known and inspired people across the globe. They each became larger-than-life figures. They were on top of the world until their lives spiralled out of control. Immense success led to failure, addiction, or unhappiness that forced them to reinvent themselves and their talents. In industries that celebrated youth, they faced down growing older and found ways to renew themselves. But in the end, they were all three isolated by their fame —and sadly, it was their inner circles, those they trusted the most, that contributed to their downfall.

Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard’s Killing series is the most popular series of narrative nonfiction books in the world. KILLING THE LEGENDS is the dramatic, insightful, entertaining, inspiring, and ultimately heartbreaking story about how these “legends” met their end.

BILL O’REILLY’s success in broadcasting and publishing is unmatched. The iconic anchor of “The O’Reilly Factor,” he led the program to the status of the highest-rated cable news broadcast in the nation for 16 consecutive years.

O’Reilly has been a broadcaster for over 43 years. He has been awarded three Emmys and a number of other journalism accolades. He was a national correspondent for CBS News and for ABC News as well as a reporter-anchor for WCBS-TV in New York City among other high-profile jobs.
