In this encapturing book, El Mahdy goes beyond the treasures surrounding Tutankhamen's discovery and into the personal life of the young King, questioning his ancestry and his death. The most intriguing moment of this book is when Christine talks of her own discovery of a fragment of evidence which could prove the identity of Tutankhmen's mother. Christine El Mahdy has produced a novel of which goes into the period of the heretic Pharaoh Akhenaten and she puts forward a strong case to argue the so-called herecy of Akhenaten and provides the reader with a more sympathetic argument as to the allegations of heresy, homosexuality and incest. It is her study of these allegations which prove them otherwise and thus leads to the reason why this unknown boy Tutankhamen was crowned Pharaoh more than three and a half thousand years ago. Not only does Christine El Mahdy prove the ancestry of Tutankhamen but she also questions the theories surrounding his death. It is her strong evidence which sets the basis of being able to tell the full story of Tutankhamen's life and death. I congratulate Christine El Mahdy on producing such a wonderful book.
