"Forsyth is truly the world's reigning master of suspense"--Los Angeles Times

"When it comes to espionage, international intrigue, and suspense, Frederick Forsyth is a master." --The Washington Post Book World

"Inventive, organized, believable, and absolutely spellbinding...Suspense fiction at its very best and a cliffhanger par excellence."--The Philadelphia Inquirer

"A masterpiece tour de force of crisp, sharp, suspenseful writing...It's an awful cliché to say that 'you won't be able to put this book down, ' but cliché or not, it's the truth."--The Wall Street Journal

"The Day of the Jackal makes such comparable books as The Manchurian Candidate and The Spy Who Came in from the Cold seem like Hardy Boy mysteries." --The New York Times

"Chillingly real...Rushing along with such passion that the reader himself seems to be traveling with 'the Jackal.' One of the best books of its type in a long time." --Newsday
