Puzzle Notes

Dear friends:

Tonight we bring you a sneaky and smooth 11x13 from roster member Katja Brinck called "Your mission, should you choose to accept it...''

Katja says: "When I was growing up, I loved anything and everything to do with spies and secret agents, whether in books, tv shows, or movies. For a while I even thought maybe that would be a career. However at this point, this crossword puzzle (where I took one element of the spy lifestyle to inspire some wordplay) is probably as close as I'm going to get. So put on some James Bond theme music and enjoy the solve ... and I'll return to my normal day job in IT. Nope, nothing to see here."

Headed to your inbox tomorrow: a stunner from roster member Geoffrey Schorkopf.

Thanks as always for solving!
