"The brevity and discrepancies of the initial investigation, the unexplained silence of several key witnesses and the rumours sparked by her relationships with the Kennedy brothers have consistently raised suspicions that the events of Saturday August 4th 1962 did not end as they were officially documented - in the suicide of the world's most famous woman. Now, in this major new investigation, Donald H. Wolfe has succeeded where so many other writers have failed. With the testimony of the two witnesses, John Miner and Norman Jefferies, who always seemed to possess potentially explosive information but had never previously come forward, Wol f e assembles conclusive evidence proving that Marily Monroe was murdered. He not only names her killer and specifies the cause of death, but identifies the men who, acting upon the 'National Security Matter' surrounding Marilyn, orchestrated the su bs e quent cover-up - From the opening description of the lifeless body to the moment-by-moment account of her final days and hours, (this book) explodes every myth concerning her remarkable life and tragic death. It is a truly gripping portrait of on e of the most shocking crimes of the century." Book lightly cocked, one tiny corner bump.
