about this item
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
The best-selling author of
Against Medical Advice and the author of The Last Voyage of Columbus describe their investigation into the death of King Tut, recounting how they drew on forensic clues, historical information and the writings of Howard Carter to conclude that Tut did not die of natural causes. Reprint. A best-selling book.
