BD Rating – Difficulty ** – Enjoyment ****
Happy Chinese New Year! Seven days since last Tuesday, it’s reassuring to find that today is a Tuesday, and all is as usual. It’s less usual to see Silvanus in this slot – a first in fact, as his previous two Toughies were published later in the week – but I expect that could change. I found it not overly tricky, but by no means an escaped back-pager. Meanwhile, if I’d had any doubts about what enjoyment rating to give, the plaudits over on the back page blog have decided it! Indeed, I noted an unusually high number of clues as favourites.
