Nov 09, Miranda Reads forsyyth it it was ok Shelves: Aug 15, Stephen rated it liked it Shelves: This book is a true story; therefore, to me it starts to get good when the Jackal enters the novel.

He first acquires a legitimate British passport under a false name, under which he decides to operate for the majority of his mission.

This was entirely too much page space given to one day. As is, I had to slog through so much background and jargon and irrelevant bits that when I finally got to something interesting, I was freddrick.
