One of the most celebrated thrillers ever written, The Day of the Jackal is the electrifying story of an anonymous Englishman who, in the spring of 1963, was hired to assassinate General Charles de Gaulle.
France was infuriated by Charles de Gaulle’s withdrawal from Algeria, and there were six known attempts to assassinate the general that failed. This novel dramatizes the seventh, mostly deadly attempt, involving a professional killer for hire who would be unknown to the French Police. His code name was Jackal, his price half a million dollars, and his demand total secrecy, even from his employers.
Step by painstaking step, we follow the Jackal in his meticulous planning, from the fashioning of a specially made rifle to the devising of his approach to the time and the place where the general is to meet the Jackal’s bullet. The only obstacle in his path is a small, diffident, rumpled policeman, who happens to be considered by his boss the best detective in France: Deputy Commissaire Claude Lebel.

Frederick Forsyth, CBE, was born in England in 1938 and is an English author and occasional political commentator. He is best known for thrillers such as The Day of the Jackal, The Odessa File, The Fourth Protocol, The Dogs of War, The Devil's Alternative, The Fist of God, Icon, The Veteran, Avenger, The Afghan, and recently The Cobra and The Kill List.
The son of a furrier, he was born in Ashford, Kent, educated at Tonbridge School and later attended the University of Granada. He became one of the youngest pilots in the Royal Air Force at 19, where he served on National Service from 1956 to 1958. Becoming a journalist, he joined Reuters in 1961 and later the BBC in 1965, where he served as an assistant diplomatic correspondent. From July to September 1967, he served as a correspondent covering the Nigerian Civil War between the region of Biafra and Nigeria. He left the BBC in 1968 after controversy arose over his alleged bias towards the Biafran cause and accusations that he falsified segments of his reports. Returning to Biafra as a freelance reporter, Forsyth wrote his first book, The Biafra Story in 1969.
Forsyth decided to write a novel using similar research techniques to those used in journalism. His first full length novel, The Day of the Jackal, was published in 1971 and became an international bestseller and gained its author the Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best Novel. It was later made into a film of the same name.

Simon Prebble was born in England and reinvented himself as an actor when he came to America in 1990. After twenty years as a radio journalist, BBC announcer, and actor who toured with Ian McKellen in HAMLET, Simon tried narrating two or three audiobooks for Recorded Books in New York and was "hooked." He's now completed nearly 200 audiobooks. "Artistic gold" is a phrase Simon uses to describe audiobook narration. "It gives me the ability to practice my craft--acting. I get to make creative choices--rapidly and constantly, as the narrative progresses." Simon's genius as a narrator lies in the scope of his imagination. The art of narration is the art of communicating what one's imagination sees," says Claudia Howard, artistic director for Recorded Books. "In the Technicolor of his imagination, he can be anybody, police inspector, jockey, psycho-killer, spy." Simon has recorded scores of titles in popular series by Dick Francis, Simon Brett, and Michael Pearce. Simon won't acknowledge any particular gift with accents, and he has a notably light touch with characters. "I like to stay in the background and put the story in the foreground." He says he envisions himself speaking from just behind the listener's ear. Simon finds the most interesting challenges in works of psychological suspense like those of P.D. James and Minette Walters.
