This is based on the Add-A-Gram puzzles by wildBillMunson. You need to find a chain of words, such that each next word is an anagram of the previous word plus an additional letter.

a Tasty bone in British gratitude in a Roasted fashion in great in secret in a Stone in peculiar in a rank in far in slanders in grave robbing

Good luck!

    $\begingroup$ this was a good one! I also like how you shortened 'inside' to 'in'. :) $\endgroup$ – wildBillMunson Jan 12 '17 at 8:19
  • $\begingroup$ @wildBillMunson thanks for the nice puzzle idea. Might have to consider using slang words and expression or people names etc. Using tools online makes it too easy to solve with normal words I'm afraid. $\endgroup$ – stack reader Jan 12 '17 at 8:38
  • $\begingroup$ Yes that's true. Online tools don't usually include proper nouns. Excellent idea! $\endgroup$ – wildBillMunson Jan 12 '17 at 8:41
