There's a contract out. The year is 1963. The target is General Charles de Gaulle. The price is $500,000.
And "Jackal" is the professional killer who takes the job. While he stalks France's most famous citizen,
the police stalk him.
The suspense-packed thriller builds nerve-tingling tension as the story shifts from France to Austria to
Italy and finally back to France for its edge-of-the-seat conclusion. Edward Fox stars as the cool,
careful assassin who chooses to be known only as "The Jackal".
