This review is from: Murder in the Hindu Kush: George Hayward and the Great Game (Hardcover)
George Hayward is a name that has cropped up from time to time in books relating to the 'Great Game' and the British Empire on the Northwest Frontier. Fantastic that there is now a book devoted to retelling the short life of this extraordinary man. The author has a writing style that captivates the reader, compelling him to read to the end. His research, combined with his writing style, has enabled him to leave the reader with a clear impression of the man in question; his character including the flaws; and the journeys that he made in a part of the world that is dangerous and difficult to travel in today, let alone in 1870. Well done Tim Hannigan.
