Summary: When Ginny Potter is brutally murdered while in bed with her lover, Draco Malfoy, a now middle aged Harry must go back in the public eye to find out who her murderer was. When it turns out that Malfoy is completely innocent, Harry himself is put up for the murder charge. It is up to him, Severus Snape, Kingsley Shacklebolt, and the Weasleys to discover how deep the murder goes and navigate the legal system all the while. During a Ministry attack and from a surprisingly reliable spy, it comes to light that the person behind the attacks is none other than the head of the MLE, now they must find enough proof to convict her and her accomplices. While all this is going on, Harry must learn what it means to be in a loving relationship after the dissolution of his own relationship with Ginny.
Opinion: The legal aspects of this story was very well handled and showed the many flaws that the British Wizarding World had to face. There was very good dialogue about creature rights and magical theory throughout the story as well. The relationship between Harry, Severus, and Kingsley I wish had a little more build up on the latter twos’ parts, but the relationship was well taken care of. The one downside of this story was that there were a lot of subplots that muddled the storyline and occasionally made it difficult to follow along. It did have a good balance of high and slow paced action, and it was fascinating to watch the author’s perspective on what Harry’s relationship with his children would be like.
