Waterstones Says

A daring exercise in subverting reader expectations, Forsyth’s speculative thriller about the potential assassination of de Gaulle continues to set pulses racing. With a narrative like a tightly coiled spring and a structure that piles on the tension with every chapter, The Day of the Jackal is a master-class in sustained suspense.    

50th Anniversary Edition with a new introduction by Lee Child

'In a class by itself. Unputdownable.' - The Sunday Times 

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?

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Mr Forsyth is clever. Very clever and immensely entertaining.' - The Daily Telegraph 

'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' - The Guardian

'In a class by itself. Unputdownable.' - The Sunday Times
