Thank you, and thanks so much for your encouragement, which has a lot to do with me being back. I appreciate it.

Jeffery's fight fixing was enough to ruin some foolish young men, who could be taunted to risk too much on too large odds ... he will discover redemption eventually. We'll meet him again working towards it in the next book, The Bailliff's Baroness. Marguerite was happy to egg him on to win her as a way out, and I think that at first he was somewhat captivated by her. He learned cynicism young though. It was a most unpleasant society, fascinating but most unpleasant. And yes, eventually Marguerite will also have her happy ever after.

You can use probability theory based on the way people play each card in games like whist, to work out what everyone has in their hands. You already know where 13 of the cards are, of course you also have to ally it with psychology and how each player plays, whether cautious or reckless, and like poker, reading the 'tells' of their body language. It's easier to work using pure probability on a game like picquet. Toby is probably not aware how much people watching he does; as a vicar's son, he's learned from his father's knee how to sum up the parishioners and know how to react to them. Dice are pure mathematics.

Mary will have her share of vicissitudes, not quite the normal trope but .... well, wait and see
