      Comments about The Day Of The Jackal:

      I first read "Day of the Jakal" when I was about 13 & it improves every time I read it

      Comment on this review

      After the advent of the spy novel, it was Forsyth who 're-internationalized' the thriller and reintroduced the broad political background missing since John Buchan. The Jackal triumphantly makes us empathize with a cold-blooded assassin, and believe in the possibility of his success in killing de Gaulle, even when we know Le General died in his bed! (Kirkus UK)
