Cross-stitch 005

Don your deerstalker hat, grab your magnifying glass, and get ready to solve the mystery of this month's Cross-stitch puzzle, Whodunnit?


A more appropriate question might be, "Who said it?" That will be revealed by the labyrinthine arrow maze which twists and turns like a good thriller through the quotation grid. First you'll have to answer the clues and transfer the individual letters into the grid according to the alphanumeric references. It's elementary, really.

Remember, there are multiple leads to investigate in a Double Crostic: work back and forwards between the grid and the clues, and keep in mind that the first letters of the answers will spell the name of the author followed by the title of the work from which the quotation has been sourced.

The game is afoot!
