Marilyn Monroe's death has always been surrounded by intrigue. Told from the perspective of the deputy medical examiner, the story takes on a different shape. In contrast to the typical picture of Marilyn as a glamorous, drug-addicted movie star, Baker paints a story of a sad, lonely woman who knew too much and came to an untimely end by the hands of American political icons.
Although I found myself wishing for more content at the end of this book (The Empty Glass felt rather empty) I really enjoyed the style and the confidence with which the book was written.
