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.

I liked the book in that it mixes actual historical figures, with the authors opinion written into a engaging story on what actually happened to Tut.It tells the life stories of Howard Carter , T Tutankhamun and his family from his ancestry to his death and successors, the myth, or thruth on how he died.
An entertaining book for those who love Egypt and its history, at first I thought it jumped around a bit, but I quickly got used to the authors style of writing, overall, I found the book quite enjoyable.
I bought this because I have enjoyed many of hios previous novels. This is a poorly written, uninteresting story of a fantastic subject. It provides no authoritative evidence for its conclusions and skirts over some of the more interesting elements.
Despite its claims it was obviously written for the money rather than the story.
"king tut - more like tut tut tut"
Iam an avid james patterson reader - this book, in my view is only being sold because of his name attached to it. It is poorly written - no new story line apart from some possible already known historical facts and hey presto we have a book! I think this is disrespectful to James Patterson's readers and should never have been produced under his name. Very disappointing.
