He has written two books(Erceldoune and Other Stories & Grey Magic) but he is best known for his collaborative work with Michael Baigent. Leigh died from causes related to a heart condition eight months after losing the libel case against Random House.
Baigent and Leigh met in the late 1970's and they were to become a productive partnership, producing seven books. The first book wasbr The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail. This was a tremendous success. It purported that Jesus did not die on the cross, but fled with Mary Magdeleine and started a family in Europe. The same supposition was later the basis of a novel,The DaVinci Code by Dan Brown. Baigent and Leigh sued the publishers, Random House, only to lose and face huge costs.Neither was ever to overcome this predicament. Leigh died eight months later. Baigent lived on, but was a shadow of his former self, finally seccuming to a brain haemorredge in 2013.
