Marilyn, JFK, Hoover: Three provocative works of investigative journalism by a New York Times-bestselling author and finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. New York Times-bestselling author Anthony Summers was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in 2012 for his acclaimed account of the 9/11 attacks, The Eleventh Day. In these three exposes, Summers uncovers the truth behind the myth-making, cover-ups, and lies surrounding the death of Marilyn Monroe, the assassination of John F. Kennedy, and the career of infamous FBI director J. Edgar Hoover. Goddess: In this "remarkable" New York Times-bestselling biography of the iconic star's brief life and tragic end, Summers establishes, after years of rumors, that President Kennedy and his brother Robert were both intimately involved with Monroe in life-and in covering up the circumstances of her death (The New York Times). "Convincing evidence of a crude but effective cover-up which was designed to protect Robert Kennedy." -The Times Literary Supplement Not in Your Lifetime: Updated fifty years after the JFK assassination, Summers's extensively researched account is comprehensive and candid, shedding new light on Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby in particular, providing "the closest we have to that literary chimera, a definitive work on the events in Dallas" (The Boston Globe). "Fresh and important . . . We rush on through [Summers's] narrative as if we were reading an artful thriller." -The New York Times "An awesome work, with the power of a plea as from Zola for justice." -Los Angeles Times Official and Confidential: This "enthralling" New York Times-bestselling portrait of J. Edgar Hoover plumbs the depths of a man who possessed-and abused-enormous power as the director of the FBI for fifty years, persecuting political enemies, blackmailing politicians, and living his own surprising secret life, haunted by paranoia (Paul Theroux). "An important book that should give us all pause, especially policy makers." -The Philadelphia Inquirer "Summers' book is not just a history of a single hero-sized hypocrite, it is a history of a vast national delusion." -The Spectator
