Author(s): Frederick Forsyth
One of the most celebrated thrillers ever written, The Day of the Jackal created a new thriller genre. It is the electrifying story of an anonymous Englishman who in, the spring of 1963, was hired by Colonel Marc Rodin, Operations Chief of the OAS, to assassinate General de Gaulle.
"Mr Forsyth is clever. Very clever and immensely entertaining." (Daily Telegraph), "I was spellbound... riveted by this chilling story." (Guardian), "In a class by itself. Unputdownable." (Sunday Times)
