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').
A New York Times Best Seller! Since Marilyn Monroe died among suspicious circumstances on the night of August 4, 1962, there have been queries and theories, allegations and investigations, but no definitive evidence about precisely what happened and who was involved . . . until now. In The Murder of Marilyn Monroe: Case Closed, renowned MM expert Jay Margolis and New York Times bestselling author Richard Buskin finally lay to rest more than fifty years of wild speculation and misguided assertions by actually naming, for the first time, the screen goddess’s killer while utilizing the testimony of eye-witnesses to exactly what took place inside her house on Fifth Helena Drive in Los Angeles’ Brentwood neighborhood. Implicating Bobby Kennedy in the commission of Marilyn’s murder, this is the first book to name the LAPD officers who accompanied the US Attorney General to her home, provide details about how the Kennedys used bribes to silence one of the ambulance drivers, and specify how the subsequent cover-up was aided by a noted pathologist’s outrageous lies. This blockbuster volume blows the lid off the world’s most notorious and talked-about celebrity death, and in the process exposes not only the truth about an iconic star’s tragic final hours, but also how a legendary American politician used powerful resources to protect what many still perceive as his untarnished reputation.

Bombshell: The Night Bobby Kennedy Murdered Marilyn Monroe tells the essential truth of the death of Marilyn Monroe at the hand of Robert Kennedy, Attorney General of the United States. Drawing on unseen police files, Marilyn Monroe's private diary, and first-hand testimony, this book proves that Robert Kennedy was directly responsible for her death. It details Marilyn Monroe's tumultuous personal involvement with him and his brother, President John Kennedy. The new evidence and testimony is provided by Mike Rothmiller who, as an agent of the Organized Crime Intelligence Division (OCID) of the LAPD, had direct personal access to hundreds of secret files on exactly what happened at Marilyn Monroe's Californian home on August 5, 1962. With his training and specialist knowledge, Rothmiller used that unseen information to get to the heart of the matter, to the people who were there the night Marilyn Monroe died--two of whom played major roles in the cover-up--and the wider conspiracy to protect the Kennedys at all costs. There will be those with doubts, but to them, the lawman--who has advised the White House, the Pentagon, and international crime agencies--says the printed, forensic, and oral evidence are totally convincing. He insists: "If I presented my evidence in any court of law, I'd get a conviction." Includes eight pages of black and white photographs.
Foreword: “The purpose of this book is to reveal in a theoretically integrated manner the national secret political aspects of the life and death of Norma Jean Baker or Mortensen, become widely known as the american actress, singer and dancer Marilyn Monroe, in the measure in which this is made possible by researching primarily her films as major facts of her life history, but also other information accessed and presumed by me as being authentic, namely outside of the anti-Marilyn Monroe personal secret political propaganda, in the light of my concept of “ethnical or national secret political organization”, which had developed in my mind by around 1995, process described by me in my book entitled “My Experiences Conditioning the Development of My Concept of Ethnical or National Secret Political Organization” of 2020, published with Google Play and Internet Archive.”
More than half a century after her death, Marilyn Monroe is arguably still one of the most famous people in the world. Her life was a contrast of public brilliance and private misery, her death a tragedy suffused by dark questions - about her relations with President John F. Kennedy and his brother Robert. Drawing on more than 600 first-hand interviews, Anthony Summers offers the classic, definitive biography of a woman who captivated the world. Marilyn's tragic story is clouded by gossip-reporting more than almost any other. GODDESS, however, delivers new, fully documented yet exciting fact. 'Gets as near to the heart of the mystery as anyone ever will' Guardian 'The fullest factual account of Monroe's life and death we're likely to get' Evening Standard 'The definitive story of the legend' Irish Times 'A remarkable performance...The ghost of Marilyn Monroe cries out in these pages' New York Times
A phantom haunts America the ghost of Dealey Plaza where President John F. Kennedy was shot on November 22, 1963. In Matrix for Assassination, author Richard Gilbride, a schoolboy in 1963 who became fascinated with the facts, condenses much of the research conducted in recent years after a mountain of new data became available from classified files with the passing of the John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992. Matrix for Assassination names the names. It offers simple and defensible solutions to many of the crime's lasting enigmas: Who were the shooters? Who forced Ruby to kill Oswald? Who orchestrated Kennedy's autopsy cover-up? What actually happened in the book depository? Were the Dallas police in on the plot? The Pentagon? LBJ? The CIA? Thoroughly referenced with 300 accompanying photographs, Matrix for Assassination is bookended by two events which draw it through the tabloids and into the X-Files: Marilyn Monroe's strange death and JFK's clash with an above-top-secret UFO cabal. Her murder was a prelude to Dallas; at the heart of the military-industrial complex dwelt a sinister darkness that originated in Nazi Germany.
