The Last Days of Marilyn Monroe

The Last Days of Marilyn Monroe Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With explosive new revelations concerning the "National Security Matter" that led to the cover-up of her murder, The Last Days of Marilyn Monroe is a page-turning account of one of the most shocking crimes of the century. Donald H. Wolfe meticulously chronicles her final days, names the killer, documents the mode of death, and identifies those who orchestrated the cover-up. The pieces of the puzzle regarding Monroe's mysterious death finally lock in place with the testimony of the remaining two key witnesses who have come forward for the first time.

Assistant District Attorney John Miner, present at the autopsy, reveals his secret interview with Dr. Ralph Greenson, Monroe's psychiatrist. He also explains why Marilyn Monroe was a homicide victim, and why he is calling for a new investigation and the exhumation of her body.

Newly discovered CIA and FBI files document the dark secret in Marilyn's relationship with the Kennedys, the truth behind her break-up with the President, the shocking facts about the star's last weekend at Cal-Neva, and the many bizarre events that took place at Marilyn's home the day she died.

Review:

"A sensational biography of the tragic '50s film star." The London Times

Book News Annotation:

Following an account of Monroe's life, the author focuses on the period leading up to her death and presents evidence that Monroe was murdered in the name of national security, documents her death, and names those believed to be involved in the murder and cover-up. Includes b&w photographs. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

“Donald Wolfe has written one of the most absorbing accounts of Marilyns 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 TVs 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 starlets final weeks and offers startling evidence to support his provocative claim that Marilyns alleged suicide was, in fact, a homicide. A powerful and intimate look into the dark side of Hollywood and John F. Kennedys 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.
