The Race Is On

National Public Radio’s recent request that readers submit the names of what they believe are “the most pulse-quickening and suspenseful novels ever” apparently generated a list of more than 600 thrilling works. “A panel of experts then combined audience preference with their own judgment to narrow that list down to a manageable roster of some 200 favorites,” according to an NPR press release.

You’re now invited to choose just 10 books from that list, with the goal being to narrow its count down to a slightly more manageable 100 titles. Vote here for your favorites. This poll is supposed to remain open until Monday, July 26, with the “100 last books standing” to be revealed on Wednesday, August 4.

I'm about to visit the list, and since my own writing has a different kind of "suspense," I hope my favorite mystery writer Dorothy Sayers is on that list.
