Publisher's Summary

If there had been no cover-up of Robert Kennedy's complicity in the murder of Marilyn Monroe in 1962 and he had been prosecuted based on compelling evidence at the time, the assassination of JFK by Bobby's enemies would not have happened - changing the course of history and preventing the murder of media icon Dorothy Kilgallen. 

In a breakthrough book that is sure to be relevant for years to come, best-selling author (The Reporter Who Knew Too Much) and distinguished historian Mark Shaw investigates the connection between the mysterious deaths of motion picture screen siren Marilyn Monroe, President John F. Kennedy, and What's My Line? TV star and crack investigative reporter Dorothy Kilgallen. A former noted criminal defense attorney and network legal analyst, Shaw provides an illuminating perspective as to how Robert Kennedy's abuse of power during the early 1960s resulted in the murders of Marilyn, JFK, and Dorothy.

Author Makes Unsubstantiated Claim About Trump

Was enjoying the book until the author went on a tangent about President Trump. Even going so far as imply President Trump wealth was gained by illegal means. Should have just stuck to the subject.

Long but interesting

In 1965 I was newly married whose Uncle was the caretaker for the Bates ranch in Gilroy Calif. They commented that they heard a helicopter come and go the night before Monroe died. The Kennedy family was there. They also commented about the car driven by Kennedy. A station wagon they referred to as a "Woodie".
After JFK and RFK were killed I read numerous books about the murders. Many that this book mentions.
I came to the same conclusions the author did.
The only thing that drove me crazy was the readers pronounce of Melvin Belli. Not Belly Belli. My mom had a friend Pat Montendon who was married to him for a short time , she always referred to him as Belli not Belly.
Although, I didn't know much about Killgallon, except for her TV show "What's my Line" I submit that the author proved his case.
The authors research is impeccable.
Well worth the long read.
