'As gripping now as it was 50 years ago' THE TIMES
50TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION BY LEE CHILD
One of the most celebrated thrillers ever written, The Day of the Jackal is the exhilarating story of the struggle to catch a killer before it's too late.
1963. An anonymous Englishman is hired by the Operations Chief of French terrorist organisation O.A.S. to murder the French president, General Charles de Gaulle. A failed attempt in the previous year means the target will be nearly impossible to reach.
Only one man could do the job: an assassin of legendary talent known only as The Jackal.
This remorseless and deadly killer must be stopped. But he is a man without a name, without an identity; a lethal spectre.
How can you stop an assassin nobody can identify? The task falls to the best detective in France - and the price of failure is unthinkable.
'In a class by itself. Unputdownable.' SUNDAY TIMES
