Top 100 Crime Novels of All Time - UK Crime Writers' Association - Page 2

The Top 100 Crime Novels of All Time is a list published in book form in 1990 by the British-based Crime Writers' Association. Some famous, some far more obscure, and with quite a few notable omissions (at least as far as I'm concerned). For variations on the same theme see 'The Guardian' list and a similar list by The Mystery Writers of America (I have published the former and may do so for the latter).
