My immediate response, without checking the books which sadly seem to have gone walkabout, is that this assumes that Imre is rational which I don't remember to be the case. Even without drink, and manipulation by Coel and Ariella, he is emotionally unstable and driven by impulse.

I also don't believe that Camber would be fooled.

Great discussion starter.

Ultimately, this is what sealed Imre's fate. But....
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
the court sees their blood covered, insanely distraught monarch scream at them "don't you know a man is dead!" and then he throws them out.
------------------------------------------------------------------
That's actually a pretty good set up for some quite effective damage control. Imre suspects that a Haldane is in the wings, and that the MacRories are involved. His grief is unfeigned: which the Deryni present would have been able to detect.

The simple solution would have been to announce the following morning that an assassin claiming to serve a Haldane pretender sought to kill the king and that Cathan bravely threw himself in the way, saving the king. Cathan's known love of the king means that no one would find such an action surprising; all would find Imre's grief believable. Cathan's body is given full honours, and a new title awarded for his heroics.

Before Cathan's body is returned, the commander of his escort is warned - and ordered to Truth Read the speaker - that the king believes that Cathan was always the intended target, and that the claimed attack on the king was just a cover. Said commander is told that his primary task is to protect Cathan's sons, and to warn Camber that his family is in danger.

Of course, if Cathan's sons are killed, the title passes to Joram...and so the lands to the Michaelines.
And Camber and the Michaelines apparently have some sort of bad history...

At some point the court can announce that the Haldane pretender is being protected by some 'rogue' Michaelines(which he is), and leave crushing the Pretender to a grief stricken Camber.

Good news, revanne, that you now have a diagnosis and medication is available to help. And it's good to have support from so many sources.   We look forward to the return of your creative juices - when you are ready and things are under control.

So we have a diagnosis of Alzheimer's which is hard to hear but really a relief. The form of Alzheimer's DH has means that there is medication, which will not reverse the problem but hopefully slow down the progress. So he has started on that - we have already started developing strategies. There is a lot of support out there, and we are blessed with an amazing family, friends and a supportive church community. Hopefully my creative juices will start flowing again soon.
