Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"The Day Of The Jackal makes such comparable books as The Manchurian Candidate and The Spy Who Came In From The Cold seems like Hardy Boy mysteries." The New York Times

Review:

"A masterpiece tour de force of crisp, sharp, suspenseful writing." The Wall Street Journal

Review:

"Inventive, organized, believable and absolutely spellbinding....Suspense fiction at its very best and a cliffhanger par excellence." The Philadelphia Inquirer
