Weaving together true historical events with infamous conspiracy theories, The Empty Glass is a riveting, paranoiac thriller narrated by the young coroner who is among the first on scene at Marilyn Monroe’s bungalow when the actress is reported dead.
In the early-morning hours of August 5, 1962, Los Angeles County deputy
coroner Ben Fitzgerald arrives at the home of the world’s most famous
movie star, now lying dead in her bedroom, naked and still clutching a
telephone. There he discovers the Book of Secrets—Marilyn
Monroe’s diary—revealing a doomed love affair with a man she refers to
only as “The General.” In the following days, Ben unravels a
wide-ranging cover-up and some heartbreaking truths about the fragile,
luminous woman behind the celebrity. Soon the sinister and surreal
accounts in the Book of Secrets bleed into Ben’s own life, and he finds himself, like Monroe, trapped in a deepening paranoid conspiracy.
The Empty Glass
is an unforgettable combination of the riveting facts and legendary
theories that have dogged Monroe, the Kennedys, the Mafia, and even the
CIA for decades. It is an exciting debut from a remarkable new thriller
writer. Download and start listening now!
