I should have investigated more reading order lists!

I'm about halfway through book #17, A Wanted Man. Pretty good, so far, but I so wish I'd read it as a follow-up to Worth Dying For.
My feeling has always been that series are best read in publication order, so prequels should be read after the books that follow them in the series' timeline but preceded them in publication.

The author will have been aware that the earlier books will already have been read by many and will write accordingly. Quite often much of the point of a prequel is casting light on later events and characters the reader has already read about.
