Book Review:
The Crossword Murder by Nero Blanc is the first book by the author that I have read and this one was definitely a different kind of mystery.

Involving a lot of crossword puzzles that are skillfully used in solving the mystery, this book exercised my mind. However, some puzzles were very difficult and I had to skip them so later I thought, it would have been better had the author given these puzzles at the end of the book too so I could come back, easily find them and solve at my leisure.

The plot is pretty clean but has some very calculated twists and turns. The author's writing style is engaging and I was left speculating the solution till the end.

All in all, The Crossword Murder by Nero Blanc is a mystery that will have you working to solve the case by solving puzzles to get the next clue. 3.5 out of 5 to it and recommended to all mystery and crossword lovers.




I received the book from the publishers via Netgalley and I am very thankful to them. The above review is my honest and unbiased opinion and in no way influenced.
