The Micky Knights series is fabulous! I purchased books 5 & 6 first a couple of years ago and left them on my bookshelf without reading them. I had many books ahead of them to read first. Even though I am a voracious reader, it took awhile for me to read "The Death of a Dying Man". I became entranced immediately with Micky Knight and her supporting cast of characters. It is rare for me to make a connection with characters in the hundreds of books I have read, yet when I do, I have a special bookcase for these books. The Micky Knights series will take its place among a few other wonderful books on my special bookcase. After reading book 5 and 6, I ordered 1 thru 4 and 7 &8 immediately. There are many circumstances that I can personally relate to with Micky Knight's character. Micky is dealt a rough hand in the poker of life. For twenty years she has just survived without really living. Her character is brave, dedicated and honest but she has a battered self esteem. She cannot believe that she is worthy of another woman's love, especially, if that other woman is a wealthy professional. Micky is a PI and I am impressed with how she breaks down the clues in every case. I do have to ask one question though -- does Micky have a death wish? I mean through many of the very dangerous cases in this series, she is almost killed every time. I have to question -- why Micky is such a dope?! In almost every case she goes to confront the "bad guy(s)" without any protection or back-up! That makes me want to scream and pull my hair (let's be honest -- I would rather have another feel good motive to pull my hair) than disappointment or incredulity of how incredibly stupid Micky is time and time again when she confronts the "evil" people!Read more ›

Redmann writes about complicated characters and weaves a story that is exciting and suspenseful. The mystery part of the story clips along, while the underlying life of the characters moves slowly and is connected across the series. You get to know the cast of characters and in this final book, with their lives in disarray the two main characters need to find each other before it is too late. The suspense in her books is both in the mystery and is connected to the character flaws and miscommunications that occur among the Mickey, her partner and her friends. She has a fresh take on relationships that includes forgiveness and vulnerability. The final book includes less of the cast of characters which seems in keeping with New Orleans and the devastation there. Excellent series. I miss the characters.

These last two books in the series (Death of a Dying Man and Water Mark) definitely aren't my favorite. I like that the author tied in the personal experience of those who suffered through Hurricane Katrina and the rebuilding of New Orleans, but I'm still sad about Micky and Cordelia's relationship. --spoiler alert-- I just never saw Cordelia as someone who would cheat on Micky and I'm really sad about that aspect of her character in these last two books. I mean, she was so patient with Micky, a former "player," and the trust that the continued to build was something beautiful to me. For her character to throw that away and hurt Micky really sucked and I just never saw it coming. I guess relationships are never perfect, but that's why we read fiction--so we can imagine that they are.

The mystery part of the book was ok...not as good as the first four. But my three stars for both Death of a Dying Man and Water Mark mainly stems from my frustration with Micky and Cordelia's relationship. I guess I'm just a hopeless romantic. I'm glad that they're working things out, but I really wish they didn't have to work out anything as hurtful as infidelity.

Pulled at my heart. I am a Redmann and Micky Night fan. Redmann with her wondrous words feeds you all the angst of the people who survived and lost friends and family in Katrina while unwinding a mystery and a love story at the same time. If you have read any of the Micky Night series you will not be disappointed and if you haven't you will still reel with anguish for the people of New Orleans. No one could tell you of the loss, pain and love that it takes to rebuild better that Redmann. My hat is off to her and the emotion filled words in her work.

Book Info: Genre: Detective/Lesbian Noir Reading Level: Adult

Disclosure: I received a free copy of book 7 in this series in exchange for an honest review. I purchased the rest of the books in the series myself, so am under no particular obligation, but am happy to provide an honest review.

Synopsis: It's just one more body in one more destroyed house. I n New Orleans, a few months after Katrina, there are thousands of destroyed houses and hundreds of body yet to be found. Can one more matter? It does to Micky Knight as she takes on the quixotic search to find out who the woman was and why she might have died there. But is Micky searching for justice or just doing anything to avoid confronting the ways Katrina destroyed everything that had tied her to New Orleans? In a city that doesn't even have working stoplights, there seems little need for a private investigator. Her friends are all struggling with their own disrupted lives, lost jobs, destroyed homes. And the woman Micky thought she'd be with forever, Cordelia James, hasn't returned.

Micky's investigation leads to a tangle of greed and deceit that stretches back generations. Someone is using the destruction wrought by the flooding to finish what was started a hundred years ago. To stop them Micky will have to risk not just life and limb, but any chance to reconnect with Cordelia and rebuild the life she had before Katina. But if she doesn't stop them, a young Midwestern teenager whose only crime was wanting to help the destroyed city, will be the next body left in an abandoned house.

My Thoughts: I think this must be the best one yet. Post-Katrina New Orleans is a dark and desolate place, and Micky is just trying to make it day to day with her anger and hurt and ennui.
