By the time you finish his intrigue-filled reconstruction of Tutankhamens world -- which includes such elements as teen-age love, religious heresy, the Orwellian rewriting of history and the desperate pleas of a terrified queen -- you risk coming to care a good deal about the young Pharaohs fate. -- The New York Times<P>The Murder of Tutankhamen observes the conventions of a whodunit: a compelling victim, a batch of suspects (each of whom might be the killer), a vivid setting, and a climactic gathering wherein an ace detective produces the evidence that indicts the assassin. However, the detective and the story are actual here, and it is through forensic evidence and scholarly sleuthing that Bob Brier assembles his persuasive conclusions. -- The Boston Globe<P>Respected Egyptologist Bob Brier, specialist in paleopathology and host of the Learning Channels acclaimed series The Great Egyptians, believes it can. Skillfully combining known historical events with evidence gathered by advanced technologies, Brier has re-created the suspenseful story of religious upheaval and political intrigue that likely resulting in the murder of the teenage king Tutankhamen. -- Booklist (starred review
