First, do no harm. But as New Orleans PI Micky Knight discovers, not every health care provider follows that dictum. She stumbles into a tangle of the true believers to the criminally callous, who use the suffering of others for their twisted ends. In a city slowly rebuilding after Katrina, one of the most devastated areas is health care, and the gaps in service are wide enough for the snake oil salesmen—and the snakes themselves—to crawl through. First, her investigation is driven by anger, but then it becomes personal as someone very close to Micky uses her cancer diagnosis to go where Micky cannot, into the heart of the evil where only the ill are allowed. Micky is her only lifeline out. Can Micky save her in time to get to the medical treatment she desperately needs to survive?

    Micky Knight and New Orleans are still trying to recover

    Like the previous two books in the series, Ill Will has a more serious tone than the earlier books in the Micky Knight series. This can only be expected in stories that are so strongly rooted in New Orleans. The question is, is Redmann trying to describe what has happened to the city or exorcise demons from the experience of the aftermath of the hurricane? Probably it’s some of both. New Orleans had lived by the slogan “Laissez les bons temps rouler” (Let the good times roll) and the city is still trying in these books to return to those good times. Redmann captures how difficult that is as she has Micky describe the destruction and barrenness that grip the area. The reader can feel the horror of the event whenever Micky describes the impact that being stranded in a hospital had on Cordelia. It doesn’t take much to evoke the famous images of bodies lying in the streets and houses. This is a city occupied by ghosts, living and dead. The posttraumatic stress of the citizens is almost another character.

    The major weakness in the story is one that reappears in every Micky Knight book, so it’s really a habit of Redmann’s. Micky always starts off with two cases that have nothing to do with each other and by the end of the book, they end up being the same case. In a city with a reduced population this might be more possible than in the past, but New Orleans is still a major city. To believe that unrelated events always come together as parts of the same whole is more than improbable.

    Redmann’s mysteries are never as much about who did it as they are about how Micky is going to prove it. Certain aspects of the puzzle become evident very quickly. The intrigue comes as Micky tries to fit the pieces together and bring the culprits to justice without getting herself or anyone else killed. For that experience alone, it’s always interesting to read a Micky Knight mystery.
