RARA-AVIS: Orion Crime Masterworks series

This may have been discussed before and I missed it, and if so I apologize.
  But if someone else here may also have missed it...
  I was aware of UK publisher Orion's SF Masterworks and Fantasy Masterworks series. Somehow I was unaware until Valentine's Day that Orion also has a Crime Masterworks series. Makes sense, and I don't know why I didn't even consider it before now.
  My wife picked up a remainder at Barnes & Noble of Jim Thompson's THE GRIFTERS, which is number 30-something in the Crime Masterworks series. I checked out the series on Amazon.co.uk using its search feature, and the usual suspects are there in the series, plus some titles I don't recall getting mentioned here at all. But not all crime masterworks are hardboiled, after all.
  The cover art and design appears to be uniformly nicely done -- nice books to have on the shelf in a row (if you happen to shelve books in series like that).
  Just a head's up to those who may be interested.
