Untouchable: The Strange Life and Tragic Death of Michael Jackson Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Beginning with his final departure from Neverland, Untouchable takes listeners through Jackson's final four years, as he shuttled from California to the Middle East, Ireland, Asia, the East Coast, and Las Vegas, planning to recapture his wealth and reputation with a comeback album and a series of 50 mega-concerts, for which he was rehearsing until the day before his death. Sullivan also delves deep into Jackson's past, and the man that emerges is both naive and deeply cunning, a devoted father whose parenting decisions created an international outcry, a shrewd businessman whose successes blew up in his face and whose failures nearly brought down a megacorporation, and an inveterate narcissist who wanted more than anything a quiet, solitary, normal life.
Sullivan has never-before-reported information about Jackson's business dealings and the pedophilia allegations that irreparably marked his reputation. He had exclusive access to inner-circle figures, including Jackson's former attorney and business manager. The result is a remarkable portrait of Michael Jackson, a man of uncountable contradictions who continues to reign as the King of Pop.

Sullivan is not trashing Jackson's reputation, he is sympathetic to him and states that he believes in his innocence. I don't believe anyone would think any less of MJ after reading this, far from it - he climbed even higher in my estimation.
That said, there are inaccuracies which are inexcusable, e.g. claiming Michael wore a prosthetic nose (a look at the autopsy report shows this is not the case), and Gordon Brown being described as the 'prime minister of the Liberal party'. Also, his conclusion that Michael remained a virgin his entire life will anger some fans.
