The Day of the Jackal free pdf One of the greatest thrillers of all time, The Day of the Jackal is a novel about a professional assassin who is contracted by the OAS, a French dissident paramilitary organization, to kill Charles de Gaulle, the President of France. Using his own specialised knowledge assembled from his journalistic work and encounters with mercenaries, Forsyth creates a spine-tingling suspenseful tale told in a convincing realistic documentary style. We follow the Jackal, the unnamed assassin, as he plans meticulously for his mission appearing always to be more than one step ahead of the authorities. This dangerous game of cat and mouse grows in intensity as the fascinating and surprising climax nears. On its first publication in 1971, this novel was an overnight success and has sold over ten million copies.'The Day of the Jackal is a perfect example of the adventure story. It is very well written, entirely believable, with this intriguing, enigmatic character at its centre.' Robert Harris

About Frederick Forsyth

At the age of 19, Frederick Forsyth became the youngest pilot in the Royal Air Force, but then decided to follow a journalistic career as 'it was the only job that might enable me to travel and keep more or less my own hours.' After three years as a provincial reporter, he joined Reuters and spent the next four years in Europe. In 1965 he joined the BBC and was sent to Biafra to cover the war that was raging in Nigeria. In 1969 he decided to use his experience as a Reuter's reporter in France during the period when an assassination attempt was made on the President, General De Gaulle as the basis for a thriller. Within 35 days he completed The Day of the Jackal, which established him as one of the world's leading thriller writers. To date it has sold in the region of 10 million copies. Since then he has written over fifteen bestselling thrillers, all with an international and political setting. Frederick Forsyth is married and lives in Hertfordshire. His interests include swimming, scuba-diving, game-fishing, travelling and reading. He was awarded a CBE in 1997 and was presented with the Crime Writers' Association premier award, the Diamond Dagger, for his remarkable body of work in 2012.
