AR n 2008075326, Robb, J. D.,$d1950-$tNaked in death, is a name-title NAR, rather than a series authority record (indicated by coding 'n' in 008/12, Series fixed field position, along with the lack of 643-646 fields). Presumably it was created for bibliographic LCCN 2008048547 (In death : the first cases) in order to give the first story, Naked in death, as the uniform title (author-title main entry), with the 700 Robb, J. D.,$d1950-$tGlory in death. The story has been previously published separately as LCCNs 2003054813 and 2003576676. Looking only at the bibliographic records, there does not appear to be a separately stated series statement on the books, so there is no official "series."
I hope this helps,
