This book is the fully documented story of Marilyn Monroe's death - a heart-stopping account of the events that led to the circumstances of 4th August 1962. To this day the Los Angeles Police Department and the District Attorney's office have perpetuated a cover up that was generated over 30 years ago. For the first time in over 80 books and acres of newsprint, the complete story of her demise, and why so many joined in the conspiracy of silence, is revealed. Marilyn's universe is where the glitzy world of Hollywood, the sinister world of the Mafia and the secret sub-cellars of Washington D.C., newly released FBI files and the information of insiders who have maintained a thirty-year silence, collide. Don Wolfe's momentous book forbids us to look at one of the 20th century's cornerstone events in the same way again.
Don Wolfe has worked in Hollywood as both a film editor at Warner Bros studios and as a screenwriter for Chartoff-Winkler and Steven Spielberg. The fruit of years of meticulous investigative research, this is his first book.
