I got so many e mails after posting the last chapter of D&D that it is going to take me sometime to reply to them all. Meantime I shall answer the most asked questions.
There will be a sequel ,eventually!
The ball was not removed from the pistol. Armityge never loaded it, he just appeared to have done ...you will recall that he had learned sleight of hand tricks from his ayah, which he used to dose the drinks of the bullies at Harrow?

My sincere thanks to all of you who wrote to me ..I shall do my best to reply to each e mail, eventually!
