Not until the evidence was uncovered by tomb robbers in the 1870s would we have ever known. Then with the discovery of Tutankhamen’s tomb in the 1920s, even more hints beckoned readily at hand.

Overview

Not until the evidence was uncovered by tomb robbers in the 1870s would we have ever known. Then with the discovery of Tutankhamen’s tomb in the 1920s, even more hints beckoned readily at hand. But as with so many things in life, critical clues often go unnoticed until science, accident, and intrigue collide.

That collision was initiated by a Polish archaeologist who received permission to collect DNA samples from a group of royal mummies at the Cairo National Museum in 1973. A tragic victim of the Yom Kippur War, his samples sat dormant gathering dust until they were found and processed in 1998.

Meanwhile during the early 1970s an international team noticed, while x-raying the same mummy collection, some extremely unexpected physiological details among several of them.
As with the radiological data, the chromosomal evidence proved to be equally disquieting. When taken together, they argued for the introduction of a unique genetic anomaly into the human genome during the Egyptian late Eighteenth Dynasty. 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.

Meet the Author

W.J. Cherf has always wanted to write a book without footnotes, to tell a fascinating tale that is so real that his avid readers are left puzzled over what was real and what was Memorex. To craft such a tale takes wit, a love of science fiction, and above all a deep reverence for ancient history and archaeology. All of these qualities are stitched together beautifully in his books, because Cherf has been there, dug that. He’s even seen the sun rise from atop the Great Pyramid.
Reviews have been generous:
“Bow Tie: Two Thumbs Up”
“Imagine a dinner party thrown by Tom Clancy, where he sits EE “Doc” Smith next to HG Wells”
“Amazing story, fascinating detail, a fabulous read”
“Cherf has done a wonderful job combining facts from Egyptian history and a fictional story to create a compelling trilogy of intrigue and espionage”
“What an enjoyable experience reading this series!”
With a BA in Anthropology, MA in Egyptian Archaeology, and Ph.D. in Ancient History, Cherf remains current as an elected officer of Denver’s Egyptian Studies Society. Living with his beloved wife Sue, they keep Foxbat 1 and Foxbat 2 out in the garage. They enjoy golf, road racing (that’s where the Foxbats come in), and cheering for the Cubs and Chicago Bears.
