THE FRENCH CONNECTION is a gripping account of an extraordinary narcotics case told as it actually happened. The story is spread over many suspense-filled months and involves plush Manhattan night clubs, dark tenements in Brooklyn and the Bronx, tree-lined suburbs on the upper East Side, Paris, Marseilles and Palermo. The case involved criminals both American and French, including Jean Jehan, director of the world's largest heroin network, and Jacques Angelvin, a famous French television star. The story was made into a film starring Gene Hackman and Roy Scheider.
