Henry's puzzles operate at a level of sophistication comparable to that of the finest British cryptics, but the references are refreshingly familiar to North American solvers. No more agonizing over clues only to find the answer to be the name of a village in Northamptonshire. Instead, references to baseball, rock & roll, movies. Great fun, every bit the equal of his previous book, and that was one of my great finds.
