I've read several of the stories, but not all, and of the ones I've read these two stand out as being more or less hardboiled, the Forsyth certainly so. I was just thinking about Two Bottles of Relish today, in another context. Kind of creepy, that.

Incidentally, this is called "A Century Of *British* Mystery And Suspense"? At least a couple of these authors are Americans, including Patricia Highsmith and (I believe) Michael Z. Lewin. Based on the table of contents, this book looks pretty good.
