I truly enjoy your story it's not the every day fanfic, I hope you will update the story again, it would be a shame to abandon a story such as this.

I tried reading this a while back but just couldn't get into it at all. After reading some of Midnight Blues I suddenly 'got' your style and have started really enjoying it- to the point that I should have gone to sleep a long while back and am instead reading this. The only problems for me are that at times the pacing feels like it's not going anywhere, and I get slightly pissed off at too many references. Otherwise I'm really enjoying it.

Is it bad that at the moment when I see control, the control skits in A Bit of Fry and Laurie keep flashing in my mind?
Regardless of what I think though your writing is pretty brilliant. I really enjoy reading, you really do deserve more reviews. I may go back and review a few chapters later, but for now this will have to do.

I like his story as it builds along with the players.
It has depth of character and the way you have brought new roles into play with purpose and design is a refreshing form of introduction. The mixing of magical and non-magical interaction is another good twist. The purebloods are a powerful minority, but still a minority and the rest of the magical population are more likely to interact with non-magical people and possibly assume more of their ways of living which does show through in what you have written.
The growing realisation between Harry and Hermione, is more of a realistic one, than the usual 'they looked into each others eyes, fell into each others arms and lived happily ever after'. I don't think you need to force the pace of this point as they are both probably characters who over analyse things too much and as such both try and avoid the realisation for a good amount of time, similar to Ron and Hermione in the original cannon.
Looking forward to the next installment.

Fan-freakin' tastic story. Actually, while I'm here, your others are good as well.
But this is going on my favourties list.
Good characterization, intelligent plot and background, and interesting.
Looking forward to more.

Brilliant! Why hasn't this story got more reviews? I can't think of any other stories like it, well done!

Film Noir Harry is best Harry.
So far so epic. Nut actualy, my biggest complaint is with your Author's notes- you have many! You have 95% too much AN. For me, when I see an AN,... "Oh Hi, thanks for reading! Leave a comment, LAWL..." This takes me out of the story.
So, say I'm reading about back alley dealings and magic and such... and then, I see this guy asking me to leave a review... Talk about breaking the flow!
Besides that, good story. Keep up the good work. Keep writing and all that.

Teddy is spot on.
Your review-arrow is also almost hypnotising.
Excellent story so far, though a bit depressing. I hope you will find the time and motivation to finish it.

A superbly solid story if I ever saw one, this needs more exposure!
There were a few typos here and there, to which I would suggest reading over your own work or get a beta to nitpick. The scene transitions are a bit rough but it works. IIRC there were some puns a few chapters back that made me cringe. The flow of the chapters wasn't slow but at the same time it didn't feel like you're rushing things.
Onto character interaction, I love the Daphne and Harry scenes, the banter between those two are amazing. You can feel that Daphne's warming up to Potter quite well. Also I thought, as far as I could tell, Daphne was the blonde one and Tracy was the Brunette? Now on Ron's part, you showcased a great deal of maturity on Ron when you wrote him not blowing up like he usually does and rather he's disappointed with Hermione, points for that but you get real points for writing a mature Draco really well, although he lacks screen time though.
Can't think of anything more to add...so I'll say it again, your story is amazingly solid, and to think I was thinking twice before reading it. Good thing I stumbled upon this gem.

Sorry but your action is not believable. Do you think Aurors shout their spells when not spoken spells were a must for NEWTS? Your spell selection is far too limited. Stinging spells? WTF? And the action just does not feel right to me. Harry is a fully trained Auror with power to compete with Voldemort and you give us this joke?

Incredible story! Just read through all 15 chapters, loving the concept and this portrayal of Harry. It feels so much more plausible than canon.
Have you ever read 'Anguis: The Snake Within'? Similar in the fact that Harry is more 'intense' than the books, and expanding upon the potential of his character. The start is somewhat similar, but your plot is much more intricate.
Please let me know if you have any other stories of this sort - post DH but pre-epilogue with a completely different plot.
Cheers, and keep on writing!

Now, if this isn't one hell of a starter chapter.
And so excellently written, hm, rather professional.
I personally think it should have been done by a two parter, one for introducing the setting and one for the action on the case.

Don't usually read H/Hr but this is awesome and addictive (err no pun intended!)
