    Cryptic Crosswords Revealed - How to do cryptic crosswords

    At last! Someone has taken the time to explain not only how to do cryptic crosswords, but also the answers. Crossword Compiler, Barbara Gettinby, has been compiling crosswords for about 20 years. I have been a fan of hers for the last 8 years. Whenever I get stuck with a cryptic clue, I can look at the straight clue to get some inspiration. If I still can't work out the answer, Barbara has all the answers broken down and explained in the solutions.
