Uber-popular adventure/mystery author Patterson teams up with popular nonfiction author Dugard for this no-reason-for-existence "thriller" about how Egyptian Pharaoh Tut died. While billed as "nonfiction" there are no footnotes or bibliography to source any of the facts, and any facts used in the making of this story are buried in invented dialog and first-person description and thought.     The book moves forward along three parallel tracks - the Egyptian history of Tut, the …

I am not a nofiction reader. Matter of fact I make a conscience effort NOT to read non-fiction because it's so darn BORING! I concede that most non-fiction books are written to educate and NOT to entertain. I read for entertainment only, so when I do pick a non-fiction book I've done my homework and have tried to pick the "right" one. There were also two other factors in me picking this book.
