The Top 100 Crime Novels of All Time is a list published in book form in 1990 by the British-based Crime Writers’ Association.
Five years later, the Mystery Writers of America published a similar list entitled The Top 100 Mystery Novels of All Time. Many titles can be found in both lists.

3. ^ The Crown Crime Companion notes: “As worthy as this brilliant courtroom thriller is, it should not have been
ranked as one of the top 100 mystery books because, well, there is no such book. Those who voted for it presumably remember the superb stage play, the equally superb movie, or the excellent short story on which they were both based (though the story’s ending is quite different from that of the dramatic presentations).”
