Re your comment below:

"Started a new section in my website dedicated to crime books that became crime film. Thompson, Goodis and McBain are the first three authors and the section will be updated often. Any favorites? Lemme know."

Sticking strictly to that rarest of rare birds, movie adaptations that were superior to their source material.

THE 39 STEPS (1935) THE DESPERATE HOURS (1956) IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT (1967) BULLITT (1968) CASINO ROYALE (2006) and, if you count non-fiction true crime books that were later dramatized on film THE FRENCH CONNECTION (1971)

Hope that helps.
