Thrust onto Egypt's most powerful throne at the age of nine, King Tut was challenged from the first days of his reign. The veil of prosperity could not hide the bitter rivalries and jealousy that flourished among the Boy King's most trusted advisers. Less than a decade after his elevation, King Tut suddenly perished, and in the years and centuries that followed, his name was purged from Egyptian history. To this day, his death remains shrouded in controversy.
Intrigued by what little was known about Tut, 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 discovered the long-lost crypt.
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.
