1929 The Man in the Queue - originally written under the name Gordon Daviot, introduced the Inspector Alan Grant of Scotland Yard.
1936 A Shilling for Candles - the first mystery in which Daviot used the name Josephine Tey.
1948 The Franchise Affair - an updated, fictionalized version of a real case centering around Elizabeth Canning which took place in the 18th Century England and became a cause célèbre
1950 To Love and Be Wise - has many scenes which spoof the arts community, as well as excoriating popular novelists.
1951 The Daughter of Time - Grant bounces ideas off of the other people in his life--nurses, doctors, and acquaintances to illustrate the reactions of varying personalities to the information he discovers; this gives him opportunities to expound on his findings and theories.
1952 The Singing Sands - the final Tey mystery (found among her documents after her death), Alan Grant, on sick leave due to claustrophobia and being on the verge of a nervous breakdown, travels on a night train bound for the Scottish Highlands in order to recuperate

Good stuff. There was a very good dramatization of "The Singing Sands" on BBC Radio 7 not too long ago, which was my first exposure to the Inspector Grant books.
