Best Thrillers Of All-Time

According to the Telegraph, anyway. An interesting list. Several if not most of these were that author's first published novel. I've actually read half of these, though it's been years. I should read them again.

  • The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas (1844)
  • The Riddle of the Sands by Erskine Childers (1903)
  • The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy (1905)
  • The Third Man and other stories by Graham Greene (1949)
  • The Day of the Jackal by Frederick Forsyth (1971)
