It is my impression that the term "thriller" is used more
broadly than in the United States. For example, the back
jacket copy of a 1961 book in Boardman's Bloodhound Mystery
line, one of the most active British publishers of U.S.
mystery and PI novels, celebrated its tenth anniversary:
"First Bloodhound authors were Henry Kane HANG BY YOUR NECK
and Fredric Brown MURDER IN MOODLIGHT. Today they are still
writing top-notch thrillers; their latest being PRIVATE
EYEFULL and KNOCK THREE-ONE-TWO respectively."
Perhaps one of the UK members of the list can speak to this
