Outside the apartment, Lebel and the CRS officer arrive on the top floor in time to hear the sound of the first, silenced shot.

The Day of the Jackal is a thriller novel by English writer Frederick Forsyth about a professional assassin who is contracted by the OASa French dissident paramilitary organisation, to kill Charles de Gaullethe President of France.

He can change his personality, his appearance, and his passport with one quick stop in a deep doorway. The lengths the assassination has to go to achieve his mission and the preparations he makes are impressive.

This was especially a problem in the early part of the book before the chase really gets going. The Baroness is not the only one he seduces, lonely homosexuals, as well, serve as a safe haven for him as he makes his way closer and closer to his objective.

At points, telling me exactly what street and apartment the character is looking at adds to the richness of the text, but when driving through France, naming every intersection and borough we pass becomes tedious.
