Ten of the best chases in literature

At the Guardian, John Mullan named ten of the best chases in literature.

One chase on the list:
Rogue Male by Geoffrey Household

An English country gentleman has tried to use his hunting skills to stalk a foreign dictator. Now the tyrant's secret police are after him. Much of the novel is a pursuit, a memorable section of which involves our hero being chased through the London underground and killing one pursuer at Aldwych station.
Read about another chase on the list.
