The Insidious Dr. Fu Manchu

by Sax Rohmer

Not the best crime/thriller by any stretch, however moves along at a fair rate and keeps you reading to discover what happens. Sax Rohmer can't be ranked anywhere near to Doyle or others, but as a pulp fiction writer of the early 20th century, is quite readable

Under the Red Robe

by Stanley Weyman

fairly well written tale of swords and intrigue under the 'reigh' of Cardinal Richleiu. Moves along well, and the characters develop nicely. Perhaps not the best example of this genre, but worth a look

The Valley of Fear

by Arthur Conan Doyle

Another great Holmes story, goes on for a while in the middle, but the background is a necessary part of the story, and with a nice twist at the end. As with all of the other Holmes tales, this is a 'must read'. Conan-Doyle is amongst the greats of English literature.
