George Hayward was a maverick explorer whose murder in a remote spot in the Hindu Kush in 1870 was, from the beginning, the subject of dispute and suspicion. While mapping the wild regions of the western Himalayas, the political intrigues of the 'Great Game' left him on the wrong side of both the British Raj and the powerful Maharaja of Kashmir. This biography traces Hayward's life from his Yorkshire origins and attempts to unravel the mystery of his controversial death.
