"As an insight into the American experience of celebrity death on the 50th anniversary of the murder of the Love Goddess, biographer Darwin Porter has compiled, after decades of research, an intriguing roundup of the conspiracies and dark secrets behind Hollywood's most notorious mystery: Who Killed Marilyn? This relentless page-turner, a lip-smacking and juicy read, examines the mass hysteria that followed in the wake of Marilyn's assassination. No death in the 20th century, other than that of JFK himself, ever sparked more cover-ups, lies, criminal thefts of vital data (including body parts), bribes, perjury, myths, incompetent investigating, distorted medical records, unauthorized leaks, outrageous rumors, and a blitzkrieg of bizarre books that obscured more than they revealed. Like the sirens of Greek mythology, Marilyn was an irresistible temptress who captivated powerful men. On her road to ruin, the once-vulnerable waif had mutated into a temperamental vixen, seducing and then provoking dangerous men who presided over the economic and military mechanisms of the Free World and the innermost sanctums of organized crime. Filled with rage, hysteria, and depression, "and fed up with Jack's lies, Bobby's lies," she sought revenge and mass vindication. Her revelations at an imminent press conference could have toppled political dynasties and destroyed criminal empires. Marilyn had to be stopped. This investigative book treats the reader like a member of the jury, laying out evidence, stripping it of its links to the self-interest of whoever gave it, ad separating what really happened from thousands of distorted and misleading testimonies. The rendering of history's final verdict was, until now, crippled because of eyewitnesses who radically changed their testimonies as many as three times as the years drifted by. Into this steamy cauldron of deceit, Marilyn herself emerges as a most unreliable witness during the weeks leading up to her murder. Her own deceptions, vanities, and self-delusion poured toxic accelerants on an already raging fire. In the aftermath of the shattering events of August 5, 1962, as Marilyn's nude body--the object of the desire of literally thousands of men--was wheeled in for voyeuristic doctors to examine and dissect, a legend was already being born. This new book from Darwin Porter will change, forever, how the world interprets the death and legacy of the most famous actress to ever emerge out of Hollywood."-- Provided by publisher.

Absolute trash. I loved every word!

But please note, this is classified as non-fiction/biography, but anyone with sense and experience reading biographies will know this cannot possibly be based on fact, unless Porter had every room MM was ever in bugged for sound.
