Drawing on unseen police files, Marilyn Monroe’s private diary and first-hand testimony, this book proves that Robert Kennedy was directly responsible for her death. It details Marilyn Monroe’s tumultuous personal involvement with him and his brother, President John Kennedy. The new evidence and testimony is provided to Douglas Thompson by Mike Rothmiller who, as an agent of the Organised Crime Intelligence Division (OCID) of the LAPD, had direct personal access to hundreds of secret files on exactly what happened at Marilyn Monroe’s Californian home on August 5, 1962. With his training and specialist knowledge, Rothmiller used that unseen information to get to the heart of the matter, to the people who were there the night Marilyn Monroe died―two of whom played major roles in the cover-up―and the wider conspiracy to protect the Kennedys at all costs.
There will be those with doubts, but to them, the lawman―who has advised the White House, the Pentagon and international crime agencies―says the printed, forensic and oral evidence are totally convincing. He insists: ‘If I presented my evidence in any court of law, I’d get a conviction.’
