'As gripping now as it was 50 years ago' THE TIMES 'Masterful suspense . . . The Day of the Jackal changed the shape of popular fiction from the moment it was finished' BEN MACINTYRE ________________ 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 'Very clever and immensely entertaining' DAILY TELEGRAPH 'A perfect example of the adventure story . . . well written, entirely believable, with this intriguing, enigmatic character at its centre' ROBERT HARRIS 'A year-zero, game-changing thriller, one of the most significant of all time' LEE CHILD 'Wonderful and way ahead of its time' JAMES PATTERSON 'An extraordinary book' NICK ROBINSON, BBC RADIO 4 TODAY PROGRAMME 'A masterpiece' MARCUS SCRIVEN, MAIL ON SUNDAY 'I was spellbound . . . riveted by this chilling story.'
