Classic Thrillers

Coma by Robin Cook. Genre-defining medical thriller that will totally creep you out.

Dracula by Bram Stoker. The original horror story, and the best.

Eye of the Needle by Ken Follett. One of the best spy thrillers of all time. 1940s England.

Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. A short, powerful Sherlock Holmes tale, as much thriller as mystery.

Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton. The famous dinosaur cloning story.

King Solomon’s Mines by Henry Rider Haggard. Archetypal action-adventure thriller from 1885.

Raise the Titanic! by Clive Cussler. 1970s action thriller with big hero Dirk Pitt.

The Andromeda Strain by Michael Crichton. Created the science thriller genre.

The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas. Unbelievably good 19th century story of revenge, if you can keep up with the French names.

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson. Profound, compelling, short.
