Description

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 and the District Attorney's office have perpetuated a cover-up that was generated over 30 years ago. For the first time in 80 books and acres of newsprint, the complete story of her demise is revealed. It includes the reasons why so many joined the conspiracy of silence. Marilyn's universe is where the glitzy world of Hollywood, the sinister one of the Mafia and the secret one of Washington DC meet. Wolfe uses newly released FBI files and the information of insiders who have broken their silence to give us the resolution of one of this century's most enduring mysteries.

From the opening description of the lifeless body to the moment-by-moment account of her final days and hours, THE ASSASSINATION OF MARILYN MONROE explodes every myth concerning her remarkable life and tragic death - as is attested by the generous acclaim of her rival biographers (see 'Reviews').

Review Text

Admirable! You do not have to agree with all his conclusions to see that Wolfe takes us very close indeed to the dark truth about Monroe, the Kennedys and that lonely death in the Californian night. Anthony Summers, author of GODDESS: THE SECRET LIVES OF MARILYN MONROE

Review quote

A quietly written testimony that moves relentlessly towards a conclusion that is both plausible and convincing. * NEW STATESMAN * Donald Wolfe has written one of the most absorbing accounts of Marilyn's life to date. It is a masterful work. * Fred Lawrence, author of NORMA JEAN * I want to restate my great admiration for Don Wolfe's magnificent, trend-setting biography of Marilyn Monroe. Mr Wolfe has far surpassed my exhaustive work and even Anthony Summer s' tour de force in 1985. * Peter Brown, co-author of MARILYN: THE LAST TAKE * Admirable! You do not have to agree with all his conclusions to see that Wolfe takes us very close indeed to the dark truth about Monroe, the Kennedys and that lonely death in the Californian night. * Anthony Summers, author of GODDESS: THE SECRET LIVES OF MARILYN MONROE *
