'The life-and-death' hunt for a notorious Nazi criminal unfolds against a background of intercriminal espionage and clandestine arms deals, involving rockets designed in Germany, built in Egypt, and equipped with warheads of nuclear waste and bubonic plague. Mossad, the Israeli intelligence service, is locked in struggle with Odessa, the organisation of former SS men in Germany. As the story leads to its final dramatic confrontation on a bleak winter's hill-top, the question that every reader asked at the end of The Day of the Jackal will inevitably be asked again " CAN this be fiction?'
