He has been referred to as the organizer of the Munich killings, as well as the hijacking that ended in the Entebbe raid.Christopher Dobson and Ronald Payne sensationally tracked the activities of Carlos for several years and, thanks to a Rolodex of contacts all around the world, compiled a dossier which went to the core of his activities.

The authors were able to draw all their strands together and present a brilliant, brutal depiction of terrorism as it existed in the 1970s.They showed how the movement came into being, how various elements within it interconnect — from the Baader-Meinhof gang to the Japanese Red Army and several other groups — and how they link up with the Palestinians and ultimately with the Russians, who manipulated these general revolutionaries for their own ends.Carlos was brought up by his millionaire father in South America and was given a middle name inspired by the Russian revolutionary Lenin.

We have a picture of a plump, vain, sociable, and an accomplished ladies’ man, who draws from the girls who help him and hide him a devotion which recalls that of the serial killer Charles Manson.The story of Carlos, even forty years after the book’s initial release, is modern history at its finest and most tangled. The political spider’s web explains how Carlos became the most wanted criminal in the world, a public enemy on whom Interpol gave the order to ‘Shoot on sight!’Ronald Payne (1926-2013) was a distinguished newspaper correspondent who focussed on espionage and international crime.

He began covering the Middle East in the 1950s, reporting on the Suez crisis and the 1973 Yom Kippur War for the Telegraph. He also conducted a well-publicised interview with Colonel Gaddafi. As a writer he released several books on terrorism and warfare.Christopher Dobson also wrote books on espionage and terrorism, many of them with Ronald Payne, including The Never-Ending War and The Carlos Complex and, on his own, Who’s Who in Espionage.Endeavour Press is the UKs leading independent digital publisher.
