Description

"Donald Wolfe has written one of the most absorbing accounts of Marilyn's life to date."
--Fred Lawrence Guiles, author of Norma Jean

"Admirable!...Wolfe takes us very close indeed to the dark truth about Monroe, the Kennedys, and that lonely death in the California night."
--Anthony Summers, author of Goddess: The Secret Lives of Marilyn Monroe

Fifty years after her death, the Marilyn Monroe mystique remains as strong and alluring as ever--as evidenced by Michelle Williams' Golden Globe-winning performance in the critically acclaimed film, My Week with Marilyn, and NBC TV's drama Smash about the creation of a Marilyn-themed Broadway musical. In The Last Days of Marilyn Monroe, author Donald H. Wolfe, a former Hollywood screenwriter and film editor, examines the tragic starlet's final weeks and offers startling evidence to support his provocative claim that Marilyn's alleged suicide was, in fact, a homicide. A powerful and intimate look into the dark side of Hollywood and John F. Kennedy's Camelot, The Last Days of Marilyn Monroe is a must-read for movie buffs, true crime aficionados, and the many still enchanted by the Monroe magic.

Review quote

Donald Wolfe has far surpassed my exhaustive work and even Anthony Summer s tour de force in 1985. It is the most astonishing work ever to emerge in the literary Monroe sweepstakes. --Peter H. Brown, coauthor of Marilyn: The Last Take"

Back cover copy

Marilyn Monroe's death has been shrouded in decades of deception, conspiracy, and lies. Donald H. Wolfe has written a startling portrait of the twentieth century's greatest film star that not only redefines her place in entertainment history but also reveals the secret conspiracy that surrounded her last days.

In The Last Days of Marilyn Monroe, Wolfe confirms that the tragic actress was a homicide victim. He documents the mode of death, and names those involved and those who participated in the cover-up. Filled with documented revelations, eye-opening information about the dark secret in Marilyn's relationship with John and Robert Kennedy, and shocking details about the many bizarre events that took place at Marilyn's home the day she died, Donald H. Wolfe's remarkable book is the culmination of more than seven years of research. It will change forever the way we view the life--and death--of this great star.
