This is the 5th book in a series, and I do not recommend reading it without reading the first 4, but that said I believe it to be the best of the series. It almost reads like the end of the series, as many dangling threads are wrapped up in this one, especially the long-obvious location of Charlie's father. It will be interesting to see where Ms. Nimmo goes with the next book in the series (due out in 2008, I believe)!
