Synopsis: The Day of the Jackal:

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)
