Editorial Reviews

Peter H. Brown
“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.”
Fred Lawrence Guiles
“Donald Wolfe has written one of the most absorbing accounts of Marilyn’s life to date.”
Anthony Summers
“Admirable! You do not need 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 California night.”
London Times
A sensational biography of the tragic '50s film star.
Paris Match
A bombshell of a book that proves she was murdered.

Reads like the thriller Marilyn Monroe's life was. She was surrounded by so many people but was she ever loved for her real self? And how did she die? This story focuses on those last days. Such a sad life poor Marilyn had. Losing many people whom she felt closest to,to death, & trying so hard to just BE, & trusting so innocently those who would wrong/betray her. Get ready to hear tantalizing stories about drugs & drinking & Marilyn's doctor's & psychiatrists. Just what really happened & who was responsible for M.M.'s murder?? the people, the police, the politics, the cover-up??? Dig in & enjoy even if you don't agree with Wolfe's story, you'll love reading it, he's a great writer & don't forget the photos too!!First turn off your phone & grab your favorite liquid libation & you'll be ready to read.

The facts are here and the story is captivating. The fact that this woman was spied on and lied to for so many years is tragic and these communists were never brought to justice. This is a must read for biography lovers and conspiracy theorists.

Good research. It really makes you wonder about things and how nothing was as it appeared to be, apparently. Very good read.

The author takes you back through it all in such great detail that you actually feel like you were there. You will be amazed when the author uncovers the truth about the tragic death of Marilyn Monroe.

Well written book that lays out the facts and evidence nicely. Although it wanders a bit at times, the author comes back to the point just before I lose interest. I'd definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in Monroe, Hollywood, the Kennedys or history.

I love this book. History buffs future actors avid readers and mystery fanatics and everyone else will love this book! In my books this is one of the murders of the century, not suicide. And this book definetly helps with my point. First i did some marilyn monroe research online. Mostly wikipedia? but you get suspects right in the beginng like well maybe i wont tell you. You get whisked away in the very beginning and your mind gets mental images in the beginning and in the rest of the book. READ THIS BOOK! YOULL GET HOOKED! ha maybe a rhyme will catch your eye read this book anytime!!

Gives the reader a fascinating glimpse of the life of an iconic star. She was a brilliant actress despite being tormented by many demons. Chronicles her rise to the top of Hollywood and her sad emotional descent towards the end of her life. To this day the true cause of her death remains shrouded in mystery!
