    High-Tech Science Fiction Series Starts Off With Lost Royal Mummies, DNA, Time Travel and Murder

    High-Tech Science Fiction Series Starts Off With Lost Royal Mummies, DNA, Time Travel and Murder

    The first book in a high-tech science fiction series from the Richard’s Trust combines lost royal mummies, DNA and x-ray evidence, and the violation of the human genome. This work, Bow Tie, chronicles how an international scientific effort resolved the situation with time travel and murder.

    Not until the evidence was uncovered in the 1870s would we have ever known. Then with the discovery of Tut’s tomb in the 1920s more hints beckoned at hand. As with so many things in life, clues often go unnoticed until science, accident, and intrigue collide. That collision was initiated with some DNA samples from a group of royal mummies. Meanwhile, an international team noticed, while x-raying the same mummy collection, some unexpected physiological details. The radiological and chromosomal data proved to be disquieting and when taken together argued for the introduction of a genetic anomaly into the human genome. The source was extraterrestrial.

    Bow Tie chronicles how an international scientific effort resolved the situation by using a most unusual means for prosecuting a most unscrupulous task – time travel and murder.

    This is the first manuscript published by the Richards’ Trust in accordance with the posthumous wishes of Egyptologist Joseph William Richards, Ph.D.
