Foreword by Egyptologist JoAnn FletcherPreface by Harold Bursztajn, M.D.With New Data on the Egyptian CT ScanWritten in the style of a fictional whodunit, this fascinating piece of historical detection will appeal to history buffs, mystery lovers, and true-crime fans. - BooklistThe greatest archaeological find of the 20th century, and perhaps of all time, was the discovery in 1922 of the tomb of the Egyptian Pharaoh Tutankhamen. Untouched for 3,300 years, the ancient tomb, filled with spectacular treasures, raised many questions about the legendary reign of this boy king. Recently Tut has been in the news again. Not only has a traveling museum exhibit of his tomb's fascinating artifacts drawn the public's attention, but also a CT scan of his body, which provides new evidence concerning the king's fate, has received a good deal of media attention. Based on this new investigation, an Egyptian team of scientists and scholars has now publicly ruled out the possibility that Tut was murdered.In this thorough and intriguing review of all of the evidence, two law enforcement specialists in forensics and the psychology of criminal behavior dispute the conclusions reached by the Egyptian team. Applying sophisticated crime-solving techniques used in the investigation of contemporary murders, Detectives King and Cooper make a compelling case that the cause of King Tut's death was most likely murder.The detectives' investigation concentrates on Tut's inner circle of close confidants. One by one, the suspects are eliminated, due to evidence or probable cause, until in the end the detectives focus on the most likely suspect.For readers who enjoy mysteries, true crime, and history, Who Killed King Tut? is both an educational read and a real page-turner.Michael R. King is a senior investigative analyst for Motorola. He is a former State Attorney General Chief of Staff and intelligence supervisor for the Utah Criminal Intelligence Center and Homeland Security.Gregory M. Cooper is a manager and analyst for Motorola. He is a former Assistant Federal Security Director for Law Enforcement, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and a federal air marshal for the Transportation Security Administration.Don DeNevi is the author, coauthor, or editor of thirty-five books, including Profilers: Leading Investigators Take You Inside the Criminal Mind and Into the Minds of Madmen: How the FBI's Behavioral Science Unit Revolutionized Crime Investigation (both with John H.

The Boy King_s Journey through the UnderworldTutankhamun_s royal voyage into paradise, as told by ancient Egyptian treasuresBuried in the 14th century BCE but unearthed by Howard Carter in 1922, the objects entombed with Tutankhamun are an invaluable window into a long-extinct belief system. Seen today, they create an intricate picture of how people of the time viewed the perilous journey to paradise, a utopian Egypt that could only be entered following the final judgment. When acclaimed photographer Sandro Vannini started his work in Egypt in the late _90s, a technological revolution was about to unfold. Emerging technologies enabled him to document murals, tombs, and artifacts in unprecedented detail. Using the time-consuming and strenuous multi-shot technique, Vannini produced complete photographic reproductions that revealed colors in their original tones with vivid intensity. Through these extraordinary images, we discover the objects_ quintessential features alongside the sophisticated and cleverly hidden details. In collaboration with a series of international exhibitions beginning in Los Angeles in 2018, this comprehensive guide marks the centenary of Carter_s first excavations in the Valley of the Kings. Many of these invaluable works were damaged during the 2011 Egyptian uprising, some destroyed altogether_but fortunately endure in their full, timeless glory through Vannini's photographs. From offerings and rituals to Osiris and eternal life, Vannini_s portfolio covers all facets of ancient Egyptian culture _ but it is Tuthankhamun_s unique legacy that dominates these images. With texts by the photographer and chapter introductions from scholars in the field, Tutankhamun. The Journey through the Underworld puts much-debated mysteries to rest. The learned yet accessible forewords come from distinguished Egyptologists including Professor Salima Ikram and David P. Silverman, a researcher of over 40 years standing. Insightful narratives, resplendent images, and a contemporary standpoint make this title a fitting tribute to the boy king_s odyssey, illuminating an epoch that spanned an unimaginable 6,000 years.
