Summary: Staring out of her dusty office window, Parvati Patil - now running a detective agency with Seamus Finnigan and Dean Thomas - is surprised when the glamorous Karis Flint arrives. Why would a rich society woman hire such an inexperienced firm? But when Karis explains that the Cordalis Diamonds have gone missing, along with her son, they know they have to take the case. For Karis' son is Blaise Zabini, the Slytherin from their year currently involved with Lavender Brown.

With Jonah Flint threatening to call in the Law Enforcers, can they find Blaise and the diamonds before the day is out?

This is Equinox Chick of Hufflepuff and this is my entry into the Great Hall Mysterious May Challenge - Prompt #3 - The Private Detective.

I am not JK Rowling, whoever told you that defamed her dreadfully.

Thank you Hannah/Bob (coolh5000) for beta'ing this story.

All chapter titles are songs from Elvis Costello. I'm not him either.

Loving this, they make a great trio.
So glad that Lavender and Blaise stayed together after Lavender's Blue.
Looking forward to the next chapter.

Author's Response: Thank you. Yes they're together still and they appear in a Next Gen fic of mine called High. I hope you enjoy the rest of this mystery. ~Carole~

Brilliant Neil, a tour de force, especially liked the "fragrant" Narcissa, so Archer.

Author's Response: Someone has found me out!
Archer and McLibel, but mostly Simon Singh v the British Chiropractic Association were my inspirations.

Great chapter, Petunia does seem to be thawing slightly, perhaps due to Dudley's influence. Vernon still his old unlovable self. Loved the reference to single mother wriiter!
Nice to hear about Ernie, hope Lisa will save him from his family.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
Petunia was beginning to thaw in DH (I think). Vernon is a no hoper, and my timing, for once, was apt. I began writing this after reading the obviously libelous article in Vernon's paper, and just this week the paper has been forced to apologise (in it's usual "we're not really sorry" way). JKR is (of course) donating the damages to (an undisclosed) charity. I really hope it's going to go to the single parents charity at the centre of the row, simply because it's certain to annoy the paper and its readers.

Wow Neil you never stop amazing us!
Plots, characters, excitement, now fashion!
What a nightmare, Ginny, Hermoine and Luna in the same shop.
Brilliant!

Author's Response: Thank you.
I only hope that those nice people at Google don't let anyone see what I've been searching for over the past couple of weeks. Wikipedia gave me the basics (contemporary Western Wedding Dress). But then I had to figure out what the terms all meant. A-line, Empire, Trumpet? Blimey!
Ginny, Luna and Hermione were easy in comparison.

Really nice, Ron has a lot to put up with but they do love him.
Good to see Harry getting used to his fame and even using it to get a special gift for his best friend.

Author's Response: Thank you. This chapter is all about Ron'e relationship with Harry and Hermione.
I really can't see Harry using his fame for himself, but he would for his friends.

What's Neville about to say?
Can't wait for the next chapter.
Keep up the good work!

Author's Response: Thanks.
The answer to your second question will go a long way to answer your first.
The next chapter will not answer any of those questions :-D Instead, Harry ends up in even more trouble at Shivering Stone.

So glad to see Ginny gettibg back to her normal, lovely self.
Tavistock is a nasty piece of work, is he on the dark side or just working for the Harpies?
Looking forward to getting back to the werewolf villlage to find out what happens there.
Keep up the good work!

Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
Me, too!
Tavistock certainly has a different agenda to Harry.
What happens? Full moon, blood, torture, shirtless Harry, Lavender in her underwear, and a Harry/Lavender kiss (That statement is guaranteed 100% correct :-D).
Mischievously yours, -N-
