One of the most celebrated thrillers ever written, The Day of the Jackal is the electrifying story of an anonymous Englishman code-named "The Jackal", who in, the spring of 1963, was hired by Colonel Marc Rodin, Operations Chief of the O. A. S. , to assassinate General de Gaulle, the president of France. 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.
