Synopsis

On Friday 27th June 1975 a young Venezuelan burst from a Paris apartment into the world's headlines. He left four men dead, having previously lobbed a grenade into a crowded cafe, attempted to assassinate the president of the Zionist Federation of Great Britain, seized the French Embassy in Holland, and launched two rocket attacks on planes at Orly Airport. He went on to kidnap OPEC ministers in Vienna. He is known to the world as Carlos, and the press dubbed him the Jackal.;David Yallop tracked Carlos down in a small village in the Bekaa Valley outside war-torn Beirut, and through two long nights he listened to part of his story. Then the trail went dead, and for the next seven years Yallop tried to rediscover the Jackal. But what began as a manhunt became a journey into a world of terrorism, espionage and Middle East politics, and in this book Yallop tells the story of that hunt.
