The mystery of King Tut's death in Ancient Egypt has haunted the world for centuries. Discover the ultimate true crime story of passion and betrayal, where the clues point to murder.
Thrust onto Egypt's most powerful throne at the age of nine, King Tut's reign was fiercely debated from the outset. Behind the palace's veil of prosperity, bitter rivalries and jealousy flourished among the Boy King's most trusted advisors, and after only nine years, King Tut suddenly perished, his name purged from Egyptian history. To this day, his death remains shrouded in controversy.
Now, in The Murder of King Tut, James Patterson and Martin Dugard dig through stacks of evidence-X-rays, Carter's files, forensic clues, and stories told through the ages-to arrive at their own account of King Tut's life and death. The result is an exhilarating true crime tale of intrigue, passion, and betrayal that casts fresh light on the oldest mystery of all.

    I really loved how there were different time periods the only thing I didn't like was once I got really attached to one time period it was time to move on to another period in time I found that happened to me quiet a lot with the B.C. period because I think it was so fascinating. Also happened to me with the 1900 period not to crazy about the present day chapters though. Another bad thing, not the greatest ending but I understood what the authors were trying to say.

    Good, quick read; interesting format; well researched. Like that the authors did their own analysis.
  • BLW Summer Book Club Review

    By idflyboy
    I read this book because it was picked by a friend for a summer book club, so I didn't quite know what to expect. I enjoyed the book though. I liked the short chapters that shuttle back and forth between the tree different time periods in the book. I was a little disappointed at the end though. I felt the author made some leaps in his conclusions that he didn't lay the foundation for ahead of time. Other than that, I enjoyed it!
