Adrian Monk is horrified when he learns there is going to be a blue flu in San Francisco. He doesn’t understand what the blue flu is—but it sounds terrible. Captain Stottlemeyer explains that it’s not really a virus: the police force plan to call in “sick” until they get a better contract. The good news is that the labor dispute will give Monk a chance to get back on the force. The bad news is that it means he’ll be a “scab”—and he doesn’t like the sound of that either.

Before he knows it, Monk has his badge back and his own squad to command. Unfortunately, some of the squad members make Monk look like a paragon of mental health. But despite the challenges, they will have to pull together to catch an astrologer’s killer, solve a series of mysterious fatal assaults, and, most importantly, clean up their desks.

Quotes & Awards

  • “While the obvious audience for the Monk novels are fans of the multiple Emmy Award–winning television series, Mr. Monk and the Blue Flu will appeal to anyone who enjoys lighthearted, comedic whodunits, regardless of whether they’ve even seen the show. Goldberg’s succinct writing style—with an emphasis on witty dialogue, laugh-out-loud hijinks, and nonstop action—will make a devoted Monk fan of anyone who picks up this surprisingly entertaining read. Rubber gloves and moist towelettes not included.”

    " Love the Monk books. I can feel the struggle Monk has in this one - desire to be back on the force combined with friendship and loyalty. Also the introduction of the other crazy ex-cops = awesome! "

    " Everyone's favorite OCD detective is back - this time with his police shield while the rest of the police force calls in sick to protest contract negotiations with the City of San Francisco. I enjoyed reading about Mr. Monk's motley crew of detectives and their assistants, while they solve several murders in unusual ways. "

    " A pretty good entry in this decent series. The writing, as with all the Mr. Monk books, is fair at best. But the characters and stories are good. This one has Mr. Monk returning to the police force when a Police strike, or "Blue Flu", happens in San Fransico. The book is easy to read and easy to forget. "
