Read full description of the books To the Ends of the Earth: Hunt for the Jackal:On Friday 27 June 1975, a young Venezuelan burst from a Paris apartment straight into the world's headlines.
He left for dead four men. He had previously blithely 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. His crimes were apparently endless. he went on to kidnap the OPEC ministers in Vienna.
He is known to the world as Carlos. The press dubbed him The Jackal. Security forces consider him the world's most wanted man.
David Yallop tracked Carlos down to a small village in the Bekaa Valley outside wartorn Beirut. Through two long nights he listened to part of Carlos's story. Then, under tragic circumstances the trail went dead.
For the next seven years, Yallop tried to rediscover Carols The Jackal, but what began as a manhunt became a journey into the frightening world of terrorism, espionage and Middle Eastern politics before he finally succeeded. Yallop found out that for years the American and French governments have both been penetrated by Arab intelligence, and that major international airlines paid millions of dollars in protection money to a Palestinian terror group. He uncovered information that could and should have averted the Lockerbie disaster, and - perhaps most terrifying of all - he learned the reason for the massacre of thousands of Palestinians in the refugee camps of Sabra and Chatila.
