Tracking the Jackal : the search for Carlos, the world's most wanted man by David A Yallop( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

David Yallop spent ten years on the trail of the mysterious Carlos the Jackal, a man accused of some of the most heinous acts in the annals of international terrorism: the attack on the Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics, the kidnapping of the OPEC oil ministers, the massacre at Lod airport in Tel Aviv, and scores of bombings, murders, and hijackings. He found his man. But it was what he discovered along the way that shocks and surprises most. Yallop's intrepid search led him into dangerous territory. He was in Beirut at a time when Westerners were being kidnapped and murdered in alarming numbers, and his guide was killed mysteriously. He continued his investigations in Tripoli, Tunis, Caracas, Tel Aviv, Damascus, Vienna, London, and Paris, moving through the murky worlds of terrorists and counterterrorists, intelligence and counterintelligence, spies and double agents. He drank orange juice with Colonel Qadaffi in his tent, talked until dawn with Yasser Arafat in a basement in Tunisia, and visited Carlos's old school chums in Venezuela and in quiet London neighborhoods. Tracking the Jackal is a real-life story about the world that Frederick Forsyth, John le Carre, and Tom Clancy turn into fiction - a world that runs on intrigue and deception, with governments and security forces operating outside their own laws when they see fit. Carlos himself turns out to be almost a mythical creation of that world, employed by various sinister forces for their own purposes. Tracking the Jackal reads like a thriller, but it is a major work of investigative reporting that reveals a complex web of political corruption and betrayal

The power and the glory : inside the dark heart of John Paul II's Vatican by David A Yallop( Book )

14 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and held by 536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the first moment of his papacy Karol Wojtyla sought political influence and a role on the world stage. Promising a renewed church, he was the first media Pope and travelled around the world to preach his message. It is said that he was central in the fall of Soviet Eastern Europe. One year after his death, there are calls for his sainthood. But is this the whole truth? Investigative journalist Yallop explores the myths and half truths of John Paul II's long reign and asks some difficult questions ranging from the role of the Vatican in the momentous events in 1989, and the continued mismanagement of Vatican finance, to the failure to address the child sexual abuse crisis and the rise of Opus Dei. Including revelations from the CIA, the KGB, and the Vatican itself, this is an unflinching look at a man who may soon become a saint.--From publisher description

Beyond belief : the Catholic Church and the child abuse scandal by David A Yallop( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the papcy of John Paul II, there has been a continuous stream of revelations concerning the clerical abuse of children, and the initial denials from the Vatican have come to haunt them as the full extent of the abuse has come to light. In the US, over 10,000 accusations of abuse were documented in an official report and the Church has been forced to make compensation payments of over $3 billion. In Ireland the magnitude of the systematic abuse over seventy years has shown how even the head of the Church was involved in the protection of paedophiles. In his controversial exploration into scandal, David Yallop, leading investigative writer and best-selling author of the explosive In God's Name, reveals the appalling level of abuse within the Catholic church, giving a voice to the victims and calling for the truth to finally be told."--Back cover
