This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
In the early-morning hours of August 5, 1962, Los Angeles County deputy coroner Ben Fitzgerald arrives at the home of the world's most famous movie star, now lying dead in her bedroom, naked and still clutching a telephone. There he discovers The Book of Secrets - Marilyn Monroe's diary - revealing a doomed love affair with a man she refers to only as "The General." In the following days, Ben unravels a wide-ranging cover-up and some heartbreaking truths about the fragile, luminous woman behind the celebrity. Soon the sinister and surreal accounts in The Book of Secrets bleed into Ben's own life, and he finds himself, like Monroe, trapped in a deepening paranoid conspiracy. The Empty Glass is an unforgettable combination of the riveting facts and legendary theories that have dogged Monroe, the Kennedy's, the Mafia, and even the CIA for decades. It is an exciting debut from a remarkable new thriller writer.

The Empty Glass
I did not enjoy this book at all. I am a huge fan of Marilyn Monroe and all of the conspiracy theories. This was a poorly written book, and hard to distinguish who was speaking in the book. Confusing! I feel like I wasted my money.
I have always believed that the Kennedy's had a lot to do with the death of a legend, I believe whole heartedly that Marilyn's suicide was certainly foul play and from the get go I knew it had to do with blowing the Kennedy brothers out of the water for their not so follow by the rules standards . I believe she knew more than she should have and I also believe they found out she was pregnant and that is why she had to die , I am glad that this book saw the light of day and I feel Marilyn's death should be ruled as a murder not a suicide. She was a great person and I believe Hollywood and certain strong players in Hollywood was the reason she met her untimely death. Rest in peace Norma Jean aka (Marilyn Monroe) may you now have peace knowing that your story was finally told .
P.S. a devoted Fan

Not what I thought. Could have been better- maybe as a novella.
