Marilyn Monroe, the ultimate goddess of the silver screen, is at the peak of her popularity, internationally famous, universally admired by women and desired by men. But she's also famously insecure and temperamental and is being pilloried in the press for delaying the production of Something's Got to Give. When the head of Twentieth Century Fox threatens to cancel her contract, Monroe hires PI to the stars Nathan Heller to tap her phones and record calls that might affect legal action.

Less than three months later, Monroe is dead from an overdose and, officially, a suicide. But Heller isn't buying it. He knows that in the weeks before, the star was anything but suicidal. He knows, too, about her affair with JFK, about the secret connections between the Kennedys and the Mob... and about Bobby Kennedy's blood feud with Jimmy Hoffa. In short, Heller knows too much to accept this bum rap on a beautiful, gifted woman.

So he investigates, though his efforts might enrage some very famous, very powerful, very dangerous people. But they can't keep Heller from finding out the astounding truth behind Marilyn Monroe's untimely demise....

    " Extremely interesting book about the life and death of Marilyn Monroe. I am not a Hollywood-person-follower but Max Collins blends extensively well-researched facts into a fictional book. Includes Frank Sinatra, Peter Lawford, Jack and Robert Kennedy, and others. "

    " This was a really good book. It takes place and is about Marilyn Monroe's death and the suspicious events that happened in the days before and after. It is listed as fiction, however, it sounds so true that it had me googling MM's death facts. The author uses many resources and tells the story as a private investigator and friend that Marilyn has hired. This book has everything: old Hollywood stories, the Kennedys, politics and Mafia. "

    " Another Marilyn Monroe book!!!!! Imagine the world without the mystic of Marilyn.... but I really liked the story. And again, another book about the Kennedy boys and Marilyn!!!!! So well put together and well researched. Believable. I will read more by this author. "

    " Really intriguing read. Loved how the author created a murder mystery using history and fact and the real people in marilyn monroe's life. Great concept and I liked the portrayal of Marilyn. I will definitely read more books in the Nathan heller series "

    " Can I give it a 4 -3/4 star? I really, really liked it, but not quite a Top 10. The Nathan Heller series is excellent and this is probably the best one yet. What's not to love - Marilyn Monroe, scandal, politics, and murder, all in an excellently written book. "

    " By the time this ended I didn't care who killed Marylin. "

    " This kind of historical fiction makes me want to learn more about the real events that inspired the stories in the book. For example, did JFK really make an appearance at the Playboy Club and improv with the Rat Pack? But it also makes me wonder how much is true and how much is fiction. "
