How and why did a brilliant Spanish natural scientist meet his death in the Hindu Kush?
High up in the Hindu Kush, between the ancient pagan Kalash people and the new medievalists of the Taliban, a charismatic young Spaniard, Jordi Magraner, made his home, mastering the local languages and customs before meeting his death in a most mysterious way.
Jordi was a brilliant student of the natural world. His investigations led him to places where the legendary yeti had been sighted, and his passion for pursuit and discovery took him onto ever more perilous terrain in the Pakistani-Afghan borderlands. One by one, he turned his back on the Europeans who sought to assist him, preferring instead to entrust his safety to an Afghan youth fleeing the Taliban, and to a wondrous working dog called Fjord.
Jordi followed a winding, rocky path, down which Gabi Martínez resourcefully tracks him on this enthralling journey of detection and adventure in the Himalayas—where the truth is never as clear and pristine as the majestic mountains and the fast-flowing streams.
