4.0 out of 5 stars No surprises
A collection of eighty cryptic crosswords for the serious puzzler. People with experience of the 'Times cryptic' will know what to expect. My main regret is that solutions are provided without explanations, so that sometimes one is left wondering quite how a particular clue leads to a particular answer.

Challenging, but sometimes obscure and occasionally incomprehensible clues/answers. An explanation (as they do for The Independent's cryptic crossword) would make it more entertaining - and informative.

The normal good collection of crosswords. Glad to have the answers but would appreciate the editors telling me how some of the answers were meant to be worked out!
