  • Ishan Dasgupta

    "Frederick Forsyth's first fiction novel and in my opinion, his best. The author bases the story on an allegedly real conspiracy and his work far surpasses the reality both in detail and excitement. The Day of the Jackal set the standard for all subsequent books of this genre."
