Richard Leigh Passes Away

The Telegraph is reporting that author Richard Leigh, co-author of Holy Blood, Holy Grail, The Temple and the Lodge and many other projects with Michael Baigent, has passed away at 64, apparently of a heart attack.

Baigent and Leigh unsuccessfully sued Dan Brown in 2006 over a claim that he plagiarized their material from Holy Blood, Holy Grail in his book, The Da Vinci Code.

Even though the chase in 'Holy Blood, Holy Grail' turned out to be a hoax, it was sure an enjoyable read. He was a very knowledgable man and looked and seemed like he'd have been a cool cat to hang out with.
