"Memoirs of a Deputy Coroner: The Case of Marilyn Monroe" is a riveting new book about the official Coroner's investigation into Marilyn Monroe's death. This real-life account is based on the memoirs of Lionel Grandison, the former Los Angeles County Deputy Coroner, who investigated Marilyn Monroe's case and signed her death certificate. The book reveals shocking new details about the official Coroner's investigation and the cover-up he witnessed by Los Angeles County and City agencies.

Lionel Grandison is the first public official directly related to Marilyn Monroe's case, to write a memoir about the formal investigation and one of the last direct links to this historic case. Now 72 years-old, he sparked a 1982 District Attorney's inquiry, after telling the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisor's about the cover-up and his discovery of a diary, which was brought in with Marilyn's property.

The new book's account of that inquiry and what he experienced at the Coroner's Office twenty years earlier are riveting. Grandison claims evidence was destroyed, lost, mishandled and covered up, with a trail that leads all the way to the White House.

The book is now available for purchase at Amazon.com and Barnes & Nobles.
