Product description

Review

"In a class by itself. Unputdownable." (Sunday Times)

"Mr Forsyth is clever. Very clever and immensely entertaining." (Daily Telegraph)

"I was spellbound ... riveted by this chilling story." (Guardian)

"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" (Guardian) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I thought I was buying a hardback version but I ended up with the paperback and with a different cover to the one listed. You need to change the misleading information!

Great story. After the interesting historical bit, it starts slowly, almost dully. Then it pick up pace and never let go. Highly recommended.
