if you have no problem with run-on sentences, then this is the author for you. sometimes it took a bit to follow the thread of the sentence and focus on where it was going. that said, the story line was good. also, if you are really in to crosswords, you will enjoy these books. I found the romantic interest to be a bit trite. I had no trouble figuring out who done it but I am an avid mystery reader so there probably isn't a plot I haven't come across at one time or another. not a series for me as I have too many others that I enjoy more. did not try downloading the crosswords as computer not working well enough but was glad to see the answers to them were included in the book.

In this series opener of the pseudonymous Nero Blanc's crossword mysteries, private eye Rosco Polycrates investigates the murder of crossword editor Thompson Briephs. Briephs is a scion of the local aristocracy, the son of imposing patrician Sara Briephs and the nephew of her brother, democratic senator Hal Crane. Briephs is also a bit of a loon. Eschewing his family's more traditionally tasteful lifestyle, Briephs lives alone on an island in a house that was built to his specifications, a labyrinthine, red-walled replica of an ancient Minoan palace. This is unlikely in the extreme, of course, but it does provide an excuse for numerous classical references in the book, including a quotation from Sophocles' Ajax: "Silence gives the proper grace to women."

The character quoting Sophocles with disapproval is a crossword editor herself, Thompson Briephs's counterpart in a rival newspaper. Anabelle Graham is beautiful and intelligent, capable of reciting a list of four-letter Greek goddesses even in trying circumstances, and she is, unfortunately for Rosco, married. As the solution of Briephs's murder depends on the solution of a series of crossword puzzles--anticipating his demise, Briephs left clues--Belle becomes involved with Rosco's investigation and interested in the private eye himself.

Although The Crossword Mystery strains credibility in its description of Briephs's island home, the book is a good read, and the hesitant flirtation between Rosco and Belle is fun to watch. Crossword enthusiasts in particular will enjoy the book: it includes six puzzles for readers to solve along with Belle, among them Harrison Briephs's posthumous cryptics.

This appears to be the first book in a series and I'll look for subsequent books. The story is good with a sufficient number of red herrings and a gentle respectful romance. I liked the main characters and the denouement made sense. There appeared to be adequate justice for the miscreants. An enjoyable read!
