Since 1922, when Howard Carter discovered Tut's 3,000-year-old tomb, most Egyptologists have presumed that the young king died of disease, or perhaps an accident, such as a chariot fall.
But what if his fate was actually much more sinister?
Now, in THE MURDER OF TUT, James Patterson and Martin Dugard chronicle their epic quest to find out what happened to the boy-king. They comb through the evidence--X-rays, Carter's files, forensic clues--and scavenge for overlooked data to piece together the details of his life and death. The result is a true crime tale of intrigue, betrayal, and usurpation that presents a compelling case that King Tut's death was anything but natural.
Two best-selling suspense writers team up for this exploration of the mysterious circumstances surrounding the death of a young, now world-famous, Egyptian pharaoh. James Patterson and Martin Dugard bring their action-packing skills to bear on this exciting, if highly speculative account of what Patterson and Dugard believe to be King Tutankhamen's death at the age of 18--after holding the throne for only 9 years--due to foul play. The authors reference archaeological and scientific evidence (such as Egyptologist Howard Carter's notes and discoveries from his extensive research into King Tut's life after discovering his tomb in 1922), but readers should read this not for the facts and findings, but for the page-turning tension and infectious excitement that genre masters Patterson and Dugard infuse into every detail.
