The Day of the Jackal: The legendary assassination thriller
‘The one book I must read at least once a year, to remind me how this writing thing is really done. It reminds every thriller writer that perfection has already happened.’ Tony Kent, Daily Express
It is 1963 and an anonymous Englishman has been hired by the Operations Chief of the O.A.S. to murder General Charles de Gaulle. A failed attempt 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?
