    Summary

    Admittedly, Kent thinks, as Jack's fist slams into his gut, that one might have been below the belt.

    In which Kent has a cunning plan, Jack shows affection through roughhousing, and the Las Vegas Aces despair of their captain.

    Summary

    Percival takes in his unruly mop of hair, the spray of freckles across his nose and cheeks, the bow tie, the blue coat, down to his white-knuckled grip on a shabby brown suitcase. He sighs.

    "Newt Scamander," he says, leaning back in his chair.

    "I have permits!" says Scamander, twitching. He draws the suitcase closer to his body.

    Summary

    "Double or nothing," said Webster abruptly.

    "How exactly do you mean to double 'everything I had?'" said Ash. He meant it to come out level, but there was a quaver in his voice.

    "One more trick," Webster said. "Play, and win or lose you will walk away with your fortune." Ash stared at him. Webster made an impatient gesture. "I don't want or need your money. Or your house. Or your coat and shirt, come to that."

    It was an offer of princely generosity. Ash's mouth was dry. "And what would you have from me?" he asked.

    Something flared in Webster's cool expression for a moment, like a shark flashing a fin in still waters. "A month," he said.
