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.

This book was great entertainment. I couldn't stop and found myself listening to the story as often as possible. I loved the way the story flipped from the story of Tut to the discovery of the tomb. The intertwining of the two great stories kept me very involved. Loved it.
I loved hearing about his growing up.
Good volume, steady soothing voice who was able to enunciate and speak clearly
It made me want to finish it completely. In fact, I actually listened to several parts more than once.
Great way to make historical subjects exciting.
the research Patterson had to do to write with historical accuracy was just amazing. and, the king tut information was value and a lesson in truth. You will not be disappointed with this one.

Such a cool idea to write about King Tut, but it just didn't run as deep as I would have liked it too. The three time periods were OK, could have use just two Howard Carter's and Tut's timeline. Overall worth a credit --better yet, worth a CD burn and passing it to your friends!
This book is a very interesting listen. Persons who have had no introduction to King Tut's story will find this book stimulating. I was not disappointed in what I found here. However, the reader should understand that some of it is fact, some is conjecture, and some of the content may well be fiction. It you can tolerate that - then this book will be entertaining. Approach it as a thoughtful diversion - and you'll find it satisfactory.
The writing is good and the narration of Joe Bareett excellent.
I enjoyed this book very much, in fact I'm reading it again. The details open a door to the world of ancient Egypt. Although I don't agree with the conclusions, I respect the author's devotion to facts. Great read.
I am disappointed that James Patterson took time from his regular genre' to write this. It was boring, nothing new, and the transition from past to present was jerky.
Patterson now joins the growing list of authors who find that they can rest on whatever laurels they may have had and can author and get published a book that would be bad if a fifth grader had written it. This book badly plagiarizes a book called "The Egyptian" (available on Audible). This book is an insult. It is so poorly researched and poorly narrated with "hip-hop" expressions not really in vogue 13 centuries before the birth of Christ. I would not buy this book at any price and if I was being paid, would refuse to listen to it.
