The Murder of King Tut

The Murder of King Tut by James Patterson, read by Martin Dugard, unabridged on 5 CDs

I've hit a small string of very good books lately. In the more recent past, it has been read 100 pages and then forget it, there is nothing there for me, but the last couple of weeks I have read some interesting stuff!

Patterson combines fiction with fact in this interesting theory on who murdered the young Pharoh. The story takes place in Egypt during Tut's lifetime, Egypt during the life of Howard Carter, and present day in Patterson's office. The chapters switch back and forth between times, but each story is very easy to follow. I'm not sure I agree with Patterson's theory on who killed Tut, but I enjoyed the listen.
