Publisher's Summary

With explosive new revelations concerning the "National Security Matter" that led to the cover-up of her murder, The Last Days of Marilyn Monroe is a fascinating and riveting account of one of the most shocking crimes of the century. Donald H. Wolfe meticulously chronicles her final days, names the killer, documents the mode of death, and identifies those who orchestrated the cover-up.

The pieces of the puzzle finally lock into place with the testimony of the remaining two key witnesses who have come forward for the first time. Assistant District Attorney John Miner, present at the autopsy, reveals his secret interview with Dr. Ralph Greenson, Monroe's psychiatrist. He also explains why Marilyn Monroe was a homicide victim, and why he is calling for a new investigation and the exhumation of her body.

Newly discovered CIA and FBI files document the dark secret in Marilyn's relationship with the Kennedys, the truth behind her break-up with the president, the shocking facts about the star's last weekend at Cal-Neva, and the many bizarre events that took place at Marilyn's home the day she died.

Highly recommended....

...but where is the unabridged version? If this book was only allotted 3 hours, the almost one-third of the book spent on basic biographic information should have been eliminated in place of greater detail in the 'last days' of Marilyn. Still, this is a truly fascinating read.

PLEASE PUT UP THE NON-ABRIDGED

Great...If after listening to this book you still believe the Marilyn Monroe died at her own hand DON'T!!! If what Donald H. Wolfe said is correct, Ms. Monroe was MURDERED!!! We will never know for sure because of all the cover-ups during the period of my growing up. I love this short but informative book on Marilyn Monroe. I never have been a big fan of hers; however, it did not matter to me. WHAT A WONDERFUL LISTEN...INTRIGUE...MURDER...AND CAPTIVATING. The price is right as well. Give THE LAST DAYS OF MARILYN MONROE a listen...You won't be sorry.

What we don't know is the question

If you could sum up The Last Days of Marilyn Monroe in three words, what would they be?

What really happened?

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

Ms. Monroe's death. was it murder or suicide?

Which character – as performed by William Atherton and Alyssa Bresnahan – was your favorite?

not really sure if there was a favorite but Ms Monroe has always been one of my favorites.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Murder or Suicide?

Any additional comments?

This book is hard to review for me because I am not sure how much we can believe or know is true based on the books and it's research and or evidence

Intriguing!

I have never had much of interest in Marilyn Monroe but that was because I didn't know much about her. She is such a fascinating person and this book about her life is enthralling. I love hearing everything about her life. Great book!

Very informative

This book is well-written and very informative

We get some good insight into with whom Miss Monroe interacted before her death as well as we receive some knowledge to who might have been interested in her death

A great book - I like it

"I thought it quite good"

I liked that the author was not forming a bias view and did not push personal beliefs on the reader. Rather, I found it to be quite factual and relying on the record statements and accounts known to be true and not speculated.
