With Micky book 9, coming out this month, I'm catching up on some unread books.
I love this series. After 7 books, and none I've rated less than 4 stars, I think that is pretty damn impressive. I do have to mention, this is my least favorite of all the books. It's more personal preference, as it's still a very well written book.
I found this book to be pretty sad at times. While other Micky book have been very emotional, especially post Katrina, this one was tough to read at times. Someone close With Micky book 9, coming out this month, I'm catching up on some unread books. Someone close to Micky is diagnosed with cancer. Cancer story lines can be a personally trigger for me, pending how they are handled.
I don't know yet if this story line will have a happy ending or not, but I hope Redmann does not break my heart. I enjoyed the mystery in this book quite a bit. Redmann is really good at mysteries, and good at exciting climaxes. I thought everything unfolded well and it was a classic Micky mystery. To someone new to Micky, knowing this will be at least a nine book series, can seem daunting. But for fans of good private-eye mysteries, I can't recommend these books enough. I really believe that anyone that reads the first 3 books, will find themselves hooked, and will not want to stop reading about Micky.

This book really affected me and was a bit of an emotional rollercoaster. Ill Will takes place about two years after Water Mark. New Orleans and those who remained or returned are still trying to recover from the destruction of the city and their lives. We begin with Micky being threatened she does seem to collect a lot of threats by a fraudulent contractor who swindled her clients. Despite being able to figure out a few things before Micky, I still got a bit of a surprise in the big reveal and felt that all the pieces fit together nicely.
Although we get a bit of the supporting characters that have always been front and centre in the previous books, Redmann focuses on Micky and Cordelia for this book. Even the mystery parts seemed to take a back seat to the relationship between the two women - which is fine by me because they are what I really love in these books. They have been through a lot in the series — good and bad. Cordelia, who was the level headed one, has her own demons to wrestle with and Micky provides her with the stability and support that she once got from Cordelia.

Shelves: ebook , galley-for-review , net-galley. Synopsis : First, do no harm. My Thoughts : Some of the topics addressed in this book were very close to me — especially the problems with the high cost of insurance. I have also tried out various herbal remedies — while I know there are some that are scams, I think this particular book was a bit hard on the overall idea of herbal remedies; there are some that really do work, such as kava kava for anxiety, things that I have tried for myself.
Also, I had a friend who was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma in the mid s, so even that part of the story struck close to home. It was at times very difficult to read, but I was unable to put it down and read it straight through without stopping. A terrific mystery, fast-paced, realistic and a book — and series — that I highly recommend. Get to know Micky Knight, dyke dick. Apr 24, Heidi Gonzalez rated it really liked it.

Micky gets thrown into a case involving a snake oil salesman selling vitamin This is the first Micky Knight mystery that I've read and I just discovered that there are six more that came before this! Micky gets thrown into a case involving a snake oil salesman selling vitamins and other potentially harmful "herbal remedies" to the desperate and downtrodden. While investigating this case she also finds herself mixed up in an insurance fraud case that might jeopardize her partner.
There are many layers to the case and you find yourself swept along with Micky and all the other players in this book. There is a real underlying theme of the health care system and its many flaws and the anxiety that sick people have to deal with when they either have no insurance or their insurance starts denying their care. The book ends on a semi-cliff hanger which is a bummer since now I have to wait for the next one to find out what happens!

The logistical and personal difficulties of living in Post-Katrina New Orleans came alive for me.
