Well done, mallyh and thanks for the answer.

One of the vertical 7-letter grid positions has just the right combination for 'alludes'.
That had crossed my mind, but what do you do with the "S" for the anagram?
allude looks okay to me- no need to use the S in AL's as AL's means of AL so its an anagram of Al (and duel ). I think
A bad clue if alludes is correct, as BOb has said, the clue suggests a singular answer.
they probably missed the s on hint . . .
I think it might be allude as I can not think of a six letter answer ending in AA

Sorry, mallyh, but Dummyfluter is correct.

Thanks, mouseymick, for providing chapter & verse. The rest of the puzzle isn't very difficult, but, if you get stuck, F = 11.
