9780099557364: The Day Of The Jackal

One of the most celebrated thrillers ever written, The Day of the Jackal is the electrifying story of the struggle to catch a killer before it's too late.

It is 1963 and an anonymous Englishman has been hired by the Operations Chief of the O.A.S. to murder General de Galle. A failed attempt in the previous year means the target will be nearly impossible to get to. But this latest plot involves a lethal weapon: an assassin of legendary talent.

Known only as The Jackal this remorseless and deadly killer must be stopped, but how do you track a man who exists in name alone?

Review:

"In a class by itself. Unputdownable." ( Sunday Times)

"Mr Forsyth is clever. Very clever and immensely entertaining." ( Daily Telegraph)

"I was spellbound ... riveted by this chilling story." ( Guardian)

"It is no exaggeration to say The Day of the Jackal has influenced a generation of thriller writers... Before, thrillers were self-evidently works of the imagination. Forsyth changed all that; never before had a popular novelist created a world that seemed indistinguishable from real life... Few writers can claim to have changed the literary landscape. Forty years ago, a penniless British journalist, unwittingly or not, did just that" ( Guardian)

From the Publisher:

'In a class by itself. Unputdownable' Sunday Times
