Book Description

Master of suspense James Patterson reopens the ultimate cold case

From the Inside Flap

Master of suspense James Patterson re-opens the ultimate cold case - the unsolved death of Tutankhamen.

A secret buried for centuries

Thrust onto Egypt's throne when just nine years old, 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. After only nine years in power, and in the very prime of his life, King Tut suddenly perished, and his name purged from Egyptian history. To this day, his death remains shrouded in controversy.

The keys to an unsolved mystery

Enchanted by the young ruler's tragic story and hoping to unlock the answers to the 3,000-year-old mystery, Howard Carter made it his life's mission to uncover the pharaoh's hidden tomb. He began his search in 1907, but encountered countless setbacks and dead-ends before he finally, after fifteen years, uncovered the long-lost crypt.

The clues point to murder

Now, in The Murder of King Tut, James Patterson and Martin Dugard dig through the 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 untimely death. The result is an exhilarating true crime tale of intrigue, passion, and betrayal that casts fresh light on the oldest mystery of all.
