Coming soon to TV CONFIDENTIAL: Investigative reporter, former criminal defense attorney, and onetime cable TV analyst MARK SHAW on some of the many remarkable parallels between Marilyn Monroe and Dorothy Kilgallen, and how the ambitions of Kennedy family patriarch Joseph Kennedy may have set in motion the circumstances that ultimately led to the deaths of Monroe, Kilgallen, and JFK (all within forty months of each other). If there’s a real life Carl Kolchak, Mark Shaw would be it. Mark’s latest book, COLLATERAL DAMAGE: The Mysterious Deaths of Marilyn Monroe and Dorothy Kilgallen, and The Ties That Bind Them to Robert Kennedy and the JFK Assassination, is a page-turning history that also reminds us of the importance of primary sources when writing or reading a work of history. COLLATERAL DAMAGE is available wherever books are sold
