I'd never heard of 16 D, but it's in Chambers - Needle Time.

There are some big hints to the theme on other threads, suggesting some detective work (literally!) is needed.
Question Author
Thanks. I also have never heard of that but as you say in dictionaries. By other threads do you mean on answerbank or in the puzzle?
I dont get the link between the puzzle name and the unclued lights? Perhaps just being dopey?
Thought 19 across quite a good clue.
Not sure about 25 across which must be ad???
Thanks, Johnpiper. 25 A doesn't begin with an A, it's an I. It's an odd-looking word, but I've come across it before.
By other threads, I just meant previous queries, discussion on AB.

The title of the puzzle is just an allusion to the title of the work with the thematic entries.

will go away and have a think......
I have EMPTY and PRIORY as two of the unclueds
and maybe S?HOOL and S?COND
Anyway will have a think about some literary works or detective works that link to the title. Thanks very much!
for me a puzzle and a half!
