Product Description

About the Author

Tony Chesterley has savored cryptic crosswords since his days in college. He draws inspiration from the many venerable constructors who have amused U.S. puzzle buffs with this addictive form of crossword invented in the British Isles. With a style and erudition that befits American solvers, Tony strives to write crosswords that are both wily and entertaining. His alacrity toward deceptive definitions and grammatical ambiguity is sure to keep even veteran solvers guessing: One female wearing short skirt way up (3,4) Twisted bent hood of Mini Cooper (6) Certain ships curiously can’t dock (8) Out with clumsy, wild-eyed bore (7)

HASH(0x8a73dbdc) out of 5 stars OK, but a little more niggly than the British ... 9 Jun. 2015
By Miss History - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
OK, but a little more niggly than the British ones. I'm looking for something really challenging, and these seem just a little too obscure--as far as the gimmicks go. Still, cryptic crosswords are very satisfying.

HASH(0x8a73db7c) out of 5 stars This is by far the worst, most confusing I've ever come across 24 April 2015
By AD - Published on Amazon.com

I have MANY cryptic crossword books, and even helped on a few, so I KNOW how they're SUPPOSED to go. This is by far the worst, most confusing I've ever come across. Makes me wish it was given to me for a total check-up. It needs it! I'm addicted to these, so thank goodness I currently have 3 others to work on! Thanks, Amazon for offering only mostly the best!
