Marilyn Monroe was a movie legend, starring in films such as The Seven Year Itch, Some Like It Hot and, in later years, The Misfits, with Clark Gable. In 1962, this beautiful star died, legend has it from suicide. There have been many takes on the life of Marilyn Monroe but in this exceptional, highly-surprising, painstakingly researched book, Keith Badman has uncovered long-lost (or previously unseen) receipts, invoices, cuttings, files, interviews, eye-witness accounts, as well as notes that reveal the details of Marilyn Monroe's last days, and how the reality of her last two years has never fully been told. After five years of highly-meticulous research, Badman is now able to reveal the unequivocal truth about how she died and the cover-up that ensued.
