Om boka

11. mars 1963 ble oberstløytnant Jean-Marie Bastien-Thiry henrettet. Det siste konvensjonelle mordforsøk på president de Gaulle hadde mislykkes. Det var da, våren 1963, at operasjonssjef Marc Rodin i OAS klekket ut en helt ny plan for å rydde de Gaulle av veien. Det eneste han trengte, var en profesjonell drapsmann. Mannen han valgte, var ingen nybegynner. Men ennå figurerte han ikke i noen etterretningstjenestes arkiver. Ennå fantes det ingen bevis mot ham. Bare rykter. Selv Marc Rodin kjenner ikke hans egentlige navn. For Mark Rodin og hans menn er han Sjakalen. Historien er bygget på faktiske hendelser.

Fakta

Om forfatteren

One of the most celebrated thrillers ever written, The Day of the Jackal is the electrifying story of the struggle to catch a killer before it's too late.

It is 1963 and an anonymous Englishman has been hired by the Operations Chief of the O.A.S. to murder General de Galle. A failed attempt in the previous year means the target will be nearly impossible to get to. But this latest plot involves a lethal weapon: an assassin of legendary talent.

Known only as The Jackal this remorseless and deadly killer must be stopped, but how do you track a man who exists in name alone? The Day of the Jackal made Frederick Forsyth a world-famous writer overnight and changed the modern thriller. Its appeal is simple - it's just one of the most exciting books ever written.
