Vote For The 100 Best Thrillers Ever

Last month, NPR solicited nominations for the "most pulse-quickening, suspenseful novels ever written," and got a list of listeners' 600 favorite thrillers. A panel of writers and critics whittled the list down to 182, ranging from classic works by Arthur Conan Doyle, Dashiell Hammett and Patricia Highsmith to more recent works from the likes of Elmore Leonard, Dan Brown and Ted Dekker.

Now it's your turn: Vote for your 10 favorites in the box below. (The comments area allows you to make a case for your choices.) NPR announces the winners August 2.
