I picked this book up simply because of its reference to Marilyn Monroe. A succession of Marilyn lookalikes are murdered and it's down to DCI Paul Banham and DI Alison Grainger to solve the case. Although it was fairly readable - it lacked depth, tension (considering it was a murder mystery it was very mundane) and was borderline silly in places, cliched, and it was hard to feel any empathy with the main characters. Okay for light entertainment when you don't feel like concentrating too much!
