We can remember her past, and/or, we can remember her through creative imagery – fiction, the wonderful world of imagination, and bring her back to life in all her glory and relive a new episode with her.
Dead but not Gone does exactly that. Set in a contemporary 21st century setting, with iPhones and modern day contrivances, a phenomenon occurs, a cosmic glitch if you will, which opens up a momentary window in the quantum time stream, and in those few seconds, a cat appears from decades before, odd paraphernalia from the 1950s and 1960s show up again, and in the Westwood Memorial Park Cemetery in West Los Angeles, a tomb suddenly shakes and rattles and from it emerges Marilyn, as beautiful as the day she died fifty years before. Marilyn finds herself in a new and bewildering world. She discovers many lies about her former life, and in particular, the manner in which she died. A thriller ensues as she tries to expose the truth and as she comes to reconcile the fact that she has been given a second chance at life.
