Publisher's summary

Since 1922, when Howard Carter discovered Tut's 3,000-year-old tomb, most Egyptologists have presumed that the young king died of disease, or perhaps an accident, such as a chariot fall.

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.

Not factual

The author claims to have researched this subject. The book contains numerous errors and his viewpoint of Tut's life is pure fantasy. Howard Carter is also portrayed inaccurately. Don't buy this book if you want if you want facts about the life and death of King Tut.

Painful to listen to!

This is by far the worst book that I have listened to in the last 20 years. Maybe Patterson was trying to be like the River Gods book, which was fantastic, but it just drags on and never really gets going.

This was a waste of time and money!
