I have many possibilities in mind, and look forward to what others will suggest.

It's part of a series. That makes it no good.

As long as it stands on its own merits and doesn't need the other parts of the series to make sense that shouldn't be an issue.

That will be a personal preference thing. I know I personally don't read any series books/stories out of order (unless it's a re-read of a favorite).

I read For Your Eyes Only many years ago, and I don't recall any of the stories indicating that anything needed to be read beforehand.

Let's not forget the nomination of Remember When in February 2012, a later book in the J. D. Robb In Death series. Who nominated that?

Actually, that was two stories in one and the first part stood on it's own.

Gotcha. So everyone was supposed to read the first part and not the second, since the second part was fairly late in a series? That wasn't clear to me from the nomination, but now I understand.

But wouldn't people be left hanging, having to abandon a book halfway through? And how would you enforce it?
