It started with a single Red Diary. Inside it contained all the secrets that the owner had listened to and talked about with her lovers. She wrote down everything in there. Her lovers were powerful men and when she threatened to go public with it, she died. Murdered? Perhaps. But the diary went missing. The woman was Marilyn Monroe and her lovers included President John F. Kennedy and his brother, then Attorney General, Robert Kennedy. Her death remains a mystery…as does the contents of the Red Diary as it has never turned up anywhere. Now a man claims to be the son of Marilyn Monroe. His father? Perhaps one of the Kennedys but he doesn’t know which one. He has been approached by a mob hitman who was assigned to watch over Marilyn as she carried her pregnancy out in Mexico. The mobster, calling himself Carlos, fell in love with Marilyn as so many other men have. When he witnesses the murder of Marilyn, he steals the diary. And then he begins his own set of red diaries….to carry on Marilyn’s work. From the assassination of Kennedy, to the cover up that followed and the deaths of Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy to Watergate, Carlos chronicles all the aspects he knows. His role differs in the various conspiracies and he claims he was the one that shot the fatal bullet into Kennedy’s brain…partly for money and partly for retribution for Marilyn’s death. Now, so many years later, an investigative team attempts to uncover both the diaries and the truth. Can the story possibly be true? Are there really a set of diaries that will blast everything wide open? As they go deeper, they find stumbling blocks in Washington and from the mob.
