French lawyer, writer and journalist.

Le Secret du jour J won a prize from the Comité d'action de la Résistance, and was an international bestseller. L'Orchestre rouge (1967) was even more successful. In 1969 Perrault published a spy novel, Le dossier 51.

In 1990 Perrault published Notre ami le roi (Our Friend the King, 1993) about the regime and human rights abuses of Hassan II, at the time king of Morocco.

Throughout the 90ies Perrault was active in his fight against le Front National, an extremist right political party in France.

In 2008 Perrault and his publisher Fayard were found guilty of defamation against the Marseille police in the book L'ombre de Christian Ranucci covering the Christian Ranucci affair. Ranucci was one of the last persons to be executed in France (guillotine 1976).
