A strange mix of fact and fiction set during three different time periods; we see Tutankhamen grow up and become pharaoh, Howard Carter's career and his famous discovery, and James Patterson's present day investigation into "the ultimate cold case". Unfortunately none of the three time periods are well written or researched, contrary to what Patterson claims, and the "solving" of the murder is garbled and confused. It's redeeming feature? It is short and easy to ready!
