9780099527237: The Murder of King Tut

Thrust onto Egypt's throne when just nine years old, King Tut's reign was fiercely debated from the outset. After nine years in power, Tut suddenly perished and his name was purged from Egyptian history. To this day, his death remains shrouded in controversy. Now, in "The Murder of King Tut", James Patterson and Martin Dugard dig through the evidence to arrive at their own account of Tut's life and untimely death. The result is an exhilarating true crime tale of intrigue, passion, and betrayal that casts fresh light on one of the oldest mysteries of all.

About the Author:

JAMES PATTERSON is one of the best-known and biggest-selling writers of all time. His books have sold in excess of 325 million copies worldwide. He is the author of some of the most popular series of the past two decades - the Alex Cross, Women's Murder Club, Detective Michael Bennett and Private novels - and he has written many other number one bestsellers including romance novels and stand-alone thrillers. James is passionate about encouraging children to read. Inspired by his own son who was a reluctant reader, he also writes a range of books for young readers including the Middle School, I Funny, Treasure Hunters, House of Robots, Confessions, and Maximum Ride series. James has donated millions in grants to independent bookshops and has been the most borrowed author in UK libraries for the past nine years in a row. He lives in Florida with his wife and son.

From AudioFile:

With the novelist's speculative "what if . . . ?" and the researcher's historical legwork, using X-rays, forensic clues, and previous period research, Patterson and Dugard try to prove that King Tutankhamen was murdered. The story shifts between the present to Egyptologist Howard Carter's early-twentieth-century journals to 1347 BC Thebes and the boy king's life. Joe Barrett's slightly sandpapery voice makes the moments in feel as if Patterson himself is speaking. In addition, Barrett's "veddy" British Howard Carter is fun and informative. In the ancient Egyptian sections, with their romance and court intrigues, Barrett's reading quivers with excitement. Are the authors' conclusions scientifically grounded? Do they take too many liberties? The bottom line: The storytelling works, and Barrett's performance makes this three-thousand-year-old possibly true crime an engaging listen. S.J.H.
