This book is the fully documented story of Marilyn Monroe's death - a heart-stopping account of the events that led to the circumstances of 4th August 1962. To this day the Los Angeles police and the District Attorney's office have perpetuated a cover-up that was generated over 30 years ago. For the first time in 80 books and acres of newsprint, the complete story of her demise is revealed. It includes the reasons why so many joined the conspiracy of silence. Marilyn's universe is where the glitzy world of Hollywood, the sinister one of the Mafia and the secret one of Washington DC meet. Wolfe uses newly released FBI files and the information of insiders who have broken their silence to give us the resolution of one of this century's most enduring mysteries. From the opening description of the lifeless body to the moment-by-moment account of her final days and hours, THE ASSASSINATION OF MARILYN MONROE explodes every myth concerning her remarkable life and tragic death - as is attested by the generous acclaim of her rival biographers (see 'Reviews').

Donald Wolfe's masterly investigation, couched as both document and biography, gives an intriguing insight into the likely events surrounding Monroe's death on 4 August 1962. In the overpopulated field of conspiracy theories, Wolfe's brilliantly sustained arguments are in a class of their own, and even the sceptical will succumb. Articulate and highly persuasive, he presents overwhelming evidence for an official reappraisal of Monroe's death and does so in conjunction with a portrait of the ill-fated star that transforms the familiar into the fascinating.
