Very interesting concept. I do love the magical element to what would have otherwise been a crime or investigative style of story. Very interesting characters to say in the least with Hemlock being the lead investigator while at the same time having a supernatural element to her. She does have a problem in that her interns seem to keep dying which makes investigating cases difficult. The story does appear to have a dark comedy element to it more than a traditional detective and crime story. The dark comedy in my view that does make it less of a true noir story. However that being said the story is still exceptional. Great characters. Good plot. Kept me into it the entire time. Well done indeed.
