is a stand-alone effort. Even though the detective appears in other Tey novels, there's no way this book can be considered to be part of a series. I don't think there's anything clear about the choice, however. My own opinion? I was charmed by it the first time I read it, when I was young and gullible; much less so when I reread it recently to help while away sleepless nights. But that's strictly my own humble opinion, of course, which I would never claim to be universal.
