44. Reserved nothing, the heartless exploiter of illegal immigrants (6)?
Tried variations on saved and O. Rest of the clue has us baffled. Need this one and 8 others. Love the quiz and it has kept us amused or frustrated for hours.

Thanks for help. It got us going again on others as well. Woke up this morning and one answer leapt into my head. Sad eh! Actually thoroughly enjoying this one again. Are we right in thinking that 82 is an anagram of 'clearest'?

try using an online angram solver
(such as http://anagram-solver.utsire.com/)
and keep looking. The word was new to me but I did find it defined in several online dictionaries as well as Chambers.

Brilliant, got it thanks. Down to our last 3 but they have us completely baffled at the moment. with 90, we are trying to make a drink fit between D and S. Are we even in the right ball park. Any hints on 85 beyond Robin Hood etc on ealrier post and for 96 would be appreciated.

90 Think of another abbreviation for Denmark other than just one letter and you just need a three letter drink

85 Bob's is an abbrevaition for what + word for a fellow - whole word means stout robber

96 Think what cheques are made of should give you first part of word, then think of a task that an interior decorator may have to do.

Could I ask for clues to
86. CA's pouch cannot be trusted. (5,2,3,5)
69. Rip off the reckless, young person. (8)
65. Have a dance around and meet someone who worked on the roads. (9)
