What if Marilyn Monroe had been a Soviet spy sent to seduce JFK and to coax out his secrets? In Godbersen’s telling, Marilyn is street smart under her veneer of naïveté (with an agent assigned to her in Hoover’s FBI); Kennedy is a reckless womanizer reined in by brother Bobby; and both JFK and Marilyn find their affair turning unexpectedly emotional. In her adult-fiction debut, YA author Godbersen puts her own spin on history, as a love story with a twist turns thriller. More fodder for the insatiably curious followers of both these larger-than-life main characters.
