Frederick Forsyth Cover Gallery

Frederick Forsyth's first novel, The Day of the Jackal, was an international best-seller. I must have read this in the early 1970s, almost certainly a paperback edition borrowed from my Dad. I'm guessing it was the same story for The Odessa File and  The Devil's Alternative. I also remember seeing The Shepherd in Clarks (the main bookshop in Chelmsford) when it came out but after that my memories are a bit patchy. I was still heavily and almost exclusively into science fiction in the 1980s and have only started picking up his latest thrillers in the last year or so.

I can't really add much to that except to say that the movie of The Fourth Protocol was filmed in part locally to Chelmsford and Colchester. Michael Caine can be seen at Colchester railway station. Truth be told, it's the only major film I can think of that was shot locally.
