Overview

While many believe that Marilyn Monroe was murdered on that fateful night in August 1962, the real question still remains. What was the actual reason for her demise? Marilyn was a well-loved personality who ran in all the right (or wrong) circles. What could she possibly know that was such a threat to someone that only her death would bring them security? Was it Hollywood and the finishing of the film she'd been fired from and then rehired on? Maybe it was her involvement in Las Vegas with the Rat Pack and mobsters or possibly her association with the Kennedys, especially Patricia and John F. that would lead to the ultimate sacrifice.

In 1962, sinister forces were at work plotting to kill America's sex goddess to keep her from divulging deadly information. While mobster Sam Giancana played nice with Frank Sinatra, leader of the Rat Pack and America's favorite crooner. Frank was being equally nice to Peter Lawford, JFK's brother-in-law, in order to enter the political circles that Marilyn already had access too. As this circle was being completed one vital bit of information was passed on that would end the life of Marilyn Monroe or did it?

In this 1960's conspiracy story, Marilyn Monroe is saved by Peter Lawford. Bobby Kennedy replaces the real Marilyn with a body double allowing the whole world to think she is dead. Badly beaten and bruised, Marilyn struggles to come to grips with her near death experience and the realization that everything she worked for is gone forever. The actress and sex goddess is dead.

    Loved this book! This edge of your seat novel kept me turning pages until the very end. I couldn't put it down. The book twists fate and allows Marilyn Monroe to live on that fateful night. She is then in the race of her life to determine who might have wanted to kill President John Kennedy. This is a masterpiece of intrigue and mystery including such well known celebs as Frank Sinatra, Bobby Kennedy and the Rat Pack. This is a must read.

    What she knew starts a trilogy of novels that begins with the death of Marilyn Munroe. But was it an accident, did she commit suicide, or was she murdered because she knew too much? Another question might be, what if she didn’t die?

    Authors K. R. Hughes and T. L. Burns write convincingly and evocatively, bringing time, place and characters to life. The dialog reads itself as if the movie’s playing in the reader’s head. As each historically familiar character is named, the reader feels that thrill of recognition and anticipation.

    What might Marilyn have learned, she who was loved by a president, and privy to the rich, famous, and possibly mob-connected? What might the president’s wife have thought or planned? And just how far would a family go to protect its honorable name? Or a politician to protect his dream?

    My only complaint is this is only book one—hard to complain about since it says so in the title. Readers are drawn in and pulled along, seeking more. But more will come in books 2 and 3 I guess. It’s certainly a deeply involving and fascinating read.

    Disclosure: I won a free ecopy.
