"The Day of the Jackal" is about a post World War 2 assassination plot to exterminate Charles de Gaulle where a professional assassin that only presents himself as "The Jackal" is hired to carry out the assassination. French intelligence catch wind of the plot and soon is plunged into the biggest manhunt France has ever seen in order to find and detain this "Jackal". The story is a nonstop thrill as the reader tries to piece together the evidence to discover who the Jackal is and when he will strike! The book deserves a 4.5 out of 5 and I would highly recomend it to people who love to be on the edge of their seat and enjoy a good "cat and mouse" story. This book is very descriptive and doesn't leave very much to the immagination, I would not recomend this book to readers who enjoy creating their own imagery.
