Stephen King was right when he compared Ira Levin's thrillers to the work of a fine Swiss watch-maker. He built his work with such intricate care, and his plots are so perfectly conceived, that I really doubt anyone working today can really touch him. The writing got a little dry at times, but his powerfully sense of plot, his excellent pacing and his ability to make even the most sensational concepts very real for the reader make up for it. I haven't had that much fun reading a novel in quite a while. Far from perfect, but a blast that I couldn't put down.
