The Day of the Jackal

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.



The Day of the Jackal makes such comparable books such as The Manchurian Candidate and The Spy Who Came in from the Cold seem like Hardy Boy mysteries.”—The New York Times 

The Jackal. A tall, blond Englishman with  opaque, gray eyes. A killer at the top of his  profession. A man unknown to any secret service in the  world. An assassin with a contract to kill the  world's most heavily guarded man.

One  man with a rifle who can change the course of  history. One man whose mission is so secretive not  even his employers know his name. And as the  minutes count down to the final act of execution, it  seems that there is no power on earth that can stop  the Jackal.

Gripping Mystery

This book grabs you early on and holds your attention throughout with unforeseen turns and high tension even though you know from history the ultimate outcome. Wonderfully written and fun to read.

The day of the J

This is the best book I have ever enjoyed

All Time Great Thriller!

In its structure, pacing, plot and characters, DOTJ stands out as one of, perhaps THE greatest thrillers of all time. The movie based on the book - the original with Edward Fox, not the horrendous monstrosity with Bruce Willis - is also superb.

When one reads Forsyth, one recalls what a great writer in an oft-maligned genre can achieve.
