Nero Blanc is a pseudonym for Cordelia Frances Biddle and Steve Zettler, who are husband and wife and serious crossword buffs.From Publishers Weekly:
In A Crossword to Die For, the pseudonymous Nero Blanc (The Crossword Connection) serves up six actual puzzles and one solid mystery featuring Belle Graham, crossword editor, and Rosco Polycrates, private investigator, as the newlyweds search for clues about Belle's father's odd (though ostensibly natural) death and his odder, more secret life. Surprising revelations and $10 words abound as another body turns up, a mysterious French woman causes problems and the couple begins to receive hints via puzzles faxed from Belize.
