Who Killed Captain Cook is about the local political plot that may have resulted in the murder of England's greatest navigator Captain James Cook on February 14,1779.

The commonly accepted view of the death of James Cook in Kealakekua Bay on the Big Island of Hawaii on February 14,1779 was yet another misunderstanding between the men on the ships and the people ashore that resulted in an unprovoked attack that saw Cook die surrounded by a frenzied group of armed native.
