Description
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, Marilyn hires PI to the stars Nathan Heller to tap her phones and record conversations that might prove to be important if there's a lawsuit. 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 loved by the whole world...including Nathan Heller. 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....
