The Jackal

Synopsis: In Moscow, the FBI and their Russian counterpart, the MVD, are working on a joint mission to apprehend Russian mobster Ghazzi Murad specifically for the murder of Mayor Nikolai Semankho. During the arrest, they are forced to kill Ghazzi. Ghazzi's brother, Terek Murad, also a mobster, begins his own form of deadly retribution against the MVD for Ghazzi's death. But the FBI and MVD also get wind that Terek has hired an assassin by the code name Jackal to carry out a hit on a high profile but unknown American target for the Americans sticking their nose in Russian affairs. Intelligence points to that target being Donald Brown, the Director of the FBI. The Jackal is known only by name and reputation but no one in authority knows who he is, what he looks like or if he even really exists. They learn of only one person alive who they know has had ties to the Jackal: former Basque separatist Isabella Zanconia, whose whereabouts are unknown. As such, the FBI and MVD decide to turn to the one pe

They're still there, taking the third floor

for themselves and their bodyguards...

...all former SPETSNAZ, nine in all.

Not one's left the building in five days.

Their only contact with the outside

is this man:
Victor Politovsky.

He goes to the post office twice a day

for mail which arrives general delivery.

Contact Interpol

and get everything you can on Politovsky.

Terek's men are notoriously hard to

turn out. Should we get the opportunity...

...we must be prepared to conduct

the interrogation with utmost efficiency.

- Good day to you, Mr. Preston.

- Sir.

I don't think

I want to know what that means.

The new lamination's the tricky part.

You got to use ethyl acetone.

Nasty stuff. Gives you liver cancer.

And I use a disk drive

to erase the magnetic strip.

- It's perfect.

- Thank you.

You really do beautiful work.

- Art comes in various guises, doesn't it?

- Yes, it does.

- What do I owe you?

- Right.

Well, I think your balance is about BP375.

- This is BP500.

- Oh, thank you.

- Good luck with the baby.

- Thank you.

See you next time.

How do you want the accounts handled?

Split the deposit equally between

the Macao and Panama accounts.

- And the balance?

- Leave it here in dollars.

I'll need you to open me

a Luxembourg account.

And get me some credit cards. Use

an American bank. I'll send you the names.

I'll overnight the credit cards

to your box in Montreal.

- This also came in the draft.

- Yes.

- I'll need to use your computer, Clive.

- Of course.

- Everything's ready for you.

- Good. Thank you.

Good afternoon. How may we help you?

I'm interested in an intermediate

range system, high cyclic rate.

- Man portable?

- Compact, vehicle-mounted unit.

What caliber?

No smaller than 7.62.
