Crack those cryptic clues! Verbophiles can work their way through double straight clues, double meaning clues, word exchange clues, homophone clues and anagrams. Here are all the clever crossword clues beloved of crossword compilers explained by solver Kevin Skinner in easy steps. Once you recognise the type of cryptic clue used, you are half way to finding the answer. Work your way through example crosswords provided and hone your new-found skills. The explanations show how the answers are arrived at so that next time you come across a clue of the same type, you will be able to tease out the answer for yourself and beat the compilers at their own game. First published in 1993, we have the facsimile reprint paperback, 160pp.
