"Hollywood noir mashed up with Cuban missile crisis-conspiracy theories and the shadowy death of Marilyn Monroe... makes for a dark and fascinating read." Kirkus Reviews on No City for Dreaming.

The dark, twisted undercurrents surrounding Marilyn Monroe's tragic death have never stopped haunting the American psyche. What if there were someone with intimate, first-hand knowledge of what happened to Marilyn on that fateful night fifty years ago? Someone who'd been carefully picked and cleverly manipulated to be the fall guy for her murder, but managed to flee the premises before the arrival of the official onslaught - exiling himself out of the country with the only surviving eyewitness account of the murder and it's conspirators. And what if he wrote a book, telling everything, and secretly arranged for it to come into the possession of a trusted family friend, a noted Los Angeles attorney. But because of its scorching revelations was deemed unpublishable for the times, and was committed to an old Chinese chest, where.... through the course of years, retirement and death, it was eventually forgotten. And what if the manuscript's discovery - provided us with a final, definitive account of what many consider to be the crime of the century, and certainly L.A.'s most infamously unsolved murder. What if such a manuscript really existed. That told everything. Everything.
It does.
