A secret buried for centuries
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.
The keys to an unsolved mystery
Enchanted by the 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,
uncovered the long-lost crypt.
The clues point to murder
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.
