Monthly Prize Puzzle – 054
A Puzzle by Phibs
Two men who share a profession both need her to be found.
Identify them and put their surnames in the box
This crossword put up quite a fight but eventually I solved it all, saw where Nina fitted at the bottom of the grid and then had the biggest d’oh moment when I saw how she fitted in at the top. Two famous books are revealed – Three Men in a Boat and Anna Karenina and so the surnames we needed to put ‘in the box’ were the authors (sharing the profession of writing) of the two works – Jerome and Tolstoy.
Thank you to Mrs BD for her assistance in drawing the winner from the electronic ‘hat’ – many congratulations to R C Teuton – I hope he enjoys his prize of a Daily Telegraph puzzle book.
Thanks to Phibs for the challenge – writing the review I certainly appreciated some lovely surface readings.
