I'd read the old stuff and missed Tey, so maybe she did too.
You could stick the first couple Agatha Christie books on there since they are public domain, in case she's tempted to re-visit an old friend. I quite enjoyed re-reading the first Poirot (The Mysterious Affair at Styles
), I'd forgotten how funny the tongue-in-cheek comments at Watson's expense were.
Not many mysteries are PD, but you could throw in The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
and a couple of Wilkie Collins (The Woman in White, Moonstone
) for filler.
