She was as iconic as any figure in American history, and her death 50 years ago has only magnified the attention and focus lavished upon her. Her death was ruled a suicide; after reading Wolfe's remarkable portrait of the fragile actress, you'll come to believe differently.
The book reveals incontrovertibly that the FBI and CIA were freaking out: they suspected classified national security secrets were being passed from President John F. Kennedy and Attorney General Robert Kennedy to Marilyn--a very strange kind of pillow talk. Further, Wolfe shoots down the notion that Monroe died in a "locked bedroom" alone but was indeed moved,
and that points to homicide.
This is a remarkably fascinating book based on years of research and culling through the notes of various other biographers, writers and investigative journalists. The real truth will probably never be fully disclosed, but this will bring you as close to it as you're ever going to get. And it will disturb you.
