Cryptic Crosswords for Fun, Volume 3! (Paperback)

This volume has a distinct American flavour - There's something here for everyone, but there are quite a few clues that require some knowledge of American sport, culture, or history. Care has been taken to avoid especially British abbreviations or references, and where words differ in spelling between UK and US, the expected spelling is clearly indicated after the clue.This book has been revised and updated November 2022.

Leslie Aldridge, which allows you to look up the answer to a clue without seeing the other answers in the puzzle - a great help if you are stuck.
