By Jay Margolis  (Author), Richard Buskin (Author

Buy on Amazon >

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.

A bizarre meeting with Maria Farnese, plunges the couple into new emotional territory hampered every step of the way by the beautiful and mysterious Zara.

Fast paced, with each revelation comes another twist, another turn in the plot leaving Andy and Maria reeling at the mercy of a seemingly invincible enemy. The author blurs the line between fact and fiction, confirming what every readers suspects is true.
