this is a great story even i'm a huge fan of hr (and this is very hard for me to read about jane /believe me!). congrats, wonderful writing. you can be really proud of you. thanks.

Fantastic method for an unveil on Ruth! I've always disliked fics in which Harry's character goes against his canon predisposition to hold back and suppress. Couldn't see him ever telling Jane about Ruth, so this is a perfect alternative.
Really enjoying this. Hope to hear more from you soon. :-)

Great chapter... 5 days to find Catherine - the countdown is on!
Loved it all as usual, great line about Pontius Pilate and a fantastic way for Jane to start to find out what's wrong with Harry. The books was a great idea, I thought it was going to be a photo but this was way better. I do like the way you're writing both Jane and Harry, the residual anger, the worry, the mothering, the not being able to open up. It comes across very well.
Nice to see the devil son Graham as well, and his comments did make me laugh. Looking forward as always to your next update.

I loved how you introduced Ruth to Jane, that was an excellent idea. Graham was a great add to your story, you did a great job with him! Thanks for sharing this delightful story.

Another wonderful instalment with some lovely moments of humour (Erin's hair and, particularly, Jane being more lethal than a gun...!) as well as quiet insights into the developing insights that this pair are achieving with each other. And all in addition to moving the plot forward in an understated way. Must say I loved Harry being torn between horror and pride that Graham is indeed so much of a chip off the old block! I'm delighting in the slow burn of this story and look forward to much more to come.

I really, really enjoyed this update (particularly the comments on Erin's hair). It was good to read Harry and Jane in non-combat mode. You've done such a wonderful job at creating their relationship; it's very multidimensional, complicated, and, because of that, thoroughly believable. And, as you know, I just love Graham, he's so horrible. This left me thinking, though, that perhaps there's hope for him after all (even though I revel in his awfulness, that would be a good thing). I loved so much how you introduced Ruth to Jane through a book. So subtle, and very fitting, with Jane's background as an English teacher. Gorgeous ending for this chapter.

Love this story, but just can't get my head around Harry being attracted to Jane.
Think he'll be livid about the snooping too (if he finds out)
| NatesDate 5/22/13 . chapter 32
I just barely managed to hold in a cheer (I'm at work and reading on the sly) as Jane finally has a name to go on! Graham's actions were an interesting surprise and it was nice to see that he and Harry were able to have a civil (for them anyway) conversation, however brief. Love, love, love this story. Thanks for sharing.

Ah, Jane has opened Pandora's box now. I'm very curious how that is going to turn out, but something tells me Harry is definitely not going to like what she's done now. Well, I'll wait patiently how this is going to continue, but I think the way you made her find out about Ruth was realistic. I don't think Harry or the team were going to talk about her.
And this story just keeps getting better all the time. I loved how you made Jane understand Harry's dilemma. It's great that she does. "I was baptised Henry James Pearce, not Pontius Pilate." That sounds like how Harry is working, not letting anyone else do it for him. And I loved that line by the way. It's interesting to see that Graham is indeed not that different from his father in that particular regard. I was rather impressed by the way he had gotten that kind of information, even as Jane should probably never find out about it.
Did I happen to mention that I love your Jane by the way? If I didn't, I'll do it now. I think she's as real as a fictional character can be and it's great how she told Harry about what she had said to the Headmistress. That's really something she's passionate about. And her snooping around in Harry's bedroom was very well done as well.
In short, I love this story and I'm very curious what will happen next. Thank you for writing and sharing this!

Interesting and insightful look at Jane and her character. Looking forward to more

Sorry I've taken so long to review this. Pressure of work ... but the read was worth the wait
Oh my, your use of language. I shall never think of Archimedes and his 'eureka' moment again without bursting out laughing. Brilliant stuff. And the description of Harry being 'pimped as a rent boy for the government' has a horribly queasy ring of truth about it.
I have a feeling that in the not too distant future Malcolm is going to find himself in an awkward corner. I'm sure Jane suspects he's not telling the whole truth about Harry's recent past, and once (I hope!) Catherine is found safely, I'm sure she'll put him on the spot.
In the meantime ... is there a way out of Harry's dilemma? Please don't leave us on tenterhooks too long!
| Marcy Matters 5/11/13 . chapter 31
As usual, another enjoyable installment. I especially liked Malcolm's thoughts in his conversation with Jane. Wish she'd pushed a bit more for information on Harry's emotional state... she was almost there.
Now, out of the briefing room, into the fire...
| Sparky75 5/9/13 . chapter 31
So many lines in this I absolutely loved that I could probably quote most of this chapter back at you! I think Malcolm is right, I don't think Harry would cope with losing Catherine as well, I thought for a moment Malcolm was going to tell Jane about Ruth after Jane asked the question. As much as I'm enjoying the growing friendship between Harry and Jane I'm equally loving the friendship between Harry and Malcolm and how Malcolm has been there for him and how that is slowly being revealed. Good to see he's as modest as ever as well! Great plotty stuff as well and another fantastic cliffhanger to end it on. How the hell does Harry make a decision like that.

Wonderful job with this fic, beautifully written as usual. Aaargh, can't wait for the next update! Thank you.
| pook 5/9/13 . chapter 31
Wow ... the tension increases as the team puts the clues together. Very tense indeed. I really like this plot. Well done and I'm looking forward to more
