A new fan! April 24 2012
By ReadingGrrl - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is the first Micky Knight mystery that I've read and I just discovered that there are six more that came before this! I am pleased that I didn't feel like I was missing any information by jumping in so far along in the series. I really loved the characters and I am a sucker for just about any book set in New Orleans. I love the atmosphere, and the descriptions of post Katrina NOLA are devastating, riveting and real.

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!

A Wonderful, Moving and Excellently Written Book April 1 2012

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Confession here ... I'm a huge fan of the Micky Knight books by JM Redmann ("Deaths Of Jocasta" is an absolute must read). In my opinion, Micky is one of the best defined and written characters, in lesbian fiction or otherwise. She's complex and flawed and feels real. I look forward to each and every installment in the Micky Knight series and I was not at all disappointed in this latest edition.

"Ill Will" is a wonderful book, incredibly well written and strongly poignant. I refuse to give out any plot points but fans of JM Redmann know that the real world touches Micky in all kinds of ways, good and bad, and the plot and subplots in "Ill Will" do not shy away from real life issues, pains and fears.

A big part of the Micky Knight books is a fabulous family of secondary characters, and I was thrilled to see them again on the pages of "Ill Will". I do feel it's safe to say that one of my favorite secondary characters is back - Joanne Ranson. It was great to see her and Micky interacting as only they can (as Micky says "Hey, you want sympathy, you talk to Cordelia. You want a b*tch slap into reality, you talk to me."). JM Redmann is great with dialog, and can say more with one sentence than a lot of authors can say with a paragraph.

There's a lot of history with Micky and her family, with their relationships and their environments - and as in the real world, the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and it's impact on New Orleans is alive and greatly felt on the pages of "Ill Will" and that adds to the gravity and believability of the book.

"Ill Will" is much more than a well-written mystery: it's about characters and place, it's about feelings and frustrations, it's about love and pain and it's about people ... people who you'll wish you knew, people who you wish you had as friends.

**** May 3 2012

It was paced a lot slower than previous novels and only picked up speed towards the end, but hey, even Micky gets older, I guess.

I enjoyed the ride and had my heart broken in between, but this series always manages to do so. I was surprised that a storyline that hit very close to home didn't have me more emotionally involved. I'm such a crybaby when it comes to books and movies, but nope, no tears here. I don't know why.

It was a very Micky-centric novel, and I missed reading more about her friends. They were kinda there, but not really.

But it was good. Katrina still dominates their lives in so many ways, amidst the many tragedies in this novel, that is the greatest one.

i am a long time mickey knight fan. i've read all 6 previous books multiple times and they never get old. i own them all as ebooks and hard copies. mickey is such a wonderful, complex character with great secondary characters as well. i love cordelia as much as i love mickey! this book doesn't disappoint. it is a complicated mystery with many layers. my only question is,(i don't think this is a spoiler) what is the good news??? the bad news is having to wait for the next book to find out! i'm sure in between now and then i'll find time to re-read all 7 books! :-)

Good Read July 12 2013

I've been a fan of J.M. Redmann for awhile. I think she's up there with Muller, Paretsky, Grafton and Dunlap. This book did not disappoint. I made time to read it when I should have been doing other things. As someone else wrote, Micky is the main character here; we see the friends only briefly and they are all still dealing with the havoc of Katrina. I like how Redmann intertwines social issues with her mysteries. This one focuses on health care, and as someone without insurance, I can relate to the issues mentioned. But the mystery was solid as were the characters which is the main thing. Now we must wait for the next book; I hope it is soon!
