This supremely fiendish collection contains 35 jumbo-sized cryptic puzzles conceived to vex your wits and baffle your brain.
The Times Jumbo Cryptic Crossword Book 3 is a reissue of The Third Book of Times Jumbo Crosswords, originally published in 1996.
The Times Jumbo Crossword was invented in 1970 by Edmund Akenhead, and his son, David, originally put this third collection together. Initially published just four times a year on bank holidays, since 1997 the crossword has appeared on a weekly basis.
Each crossword is based on a 27 by 27 square grid, complete with over 70 fiendish cryptic clues, and solutions which take the form of single words and whole phrases, some of them filling the entire width or height of the grid.
Test your linguistic prowess to its limit and give your brain the workout it has been waiting for.
