The husband of Monk’s former assistant, Sharona, has been arrested for murder. Sharona, now back in San Francisco, is ready to reclaim her place in Monk’s life—much to the chagrin of his current assistant, Natalie. While Monk tries to maintain a delicate balance between the two women, he discovers a few unsettling snags in the case against Sharona’s husband and may be up against a killer who not only understands him but is one step ahead.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A humorous whodunit…The dialogue is pitch perfect, and the atmosphere of the television series is captured very well, except, instead of a single episode it feels like a two-part extravaganza.”

    " As good as the others "

    " I have mixed feelings about this one for a variety of reasons. I love the principal characters and enjoyed the interaction between Monk's assistants Natalie and Sharona. I loved how the book ended. But overall, the story was convoluted (purposefully, I suppose) and left me feeling yanked around too much. Although the scene in the church kept Monk true to his quirks and compulsions, it upset me. Thankfully, it did not end in outright sacrilege. Also, the depiction of a Catholic priest breaking the sacramental seal of confession bothered me a lot. In no way, even after the death of the person who made a confession, is this allowed. There are far more helpful and informational resources on the Web that can elucidate the matter for those interested so I won't get into it from here. Overall though, the story was a great quick Monk fix. "

    " Just because I like Monk "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brent | 11/20/2013

    " Good for Monk fans, but not terribly well written as a stand alone book. Contains the meeting of Sharona and Natalie which fans will love but will only ever see here. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Keith | 10/24/2013

    " another comical tale with monk and his ocd "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mom | 9/4/2013

    " I liked this one, it was almost like a bunch of short stories inside the novel. It was good fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marissa | 7/3/2013

    " Great addition to the Monk series! It continues to be refreshing to see things from Natalie's point of view, particularly with the return of Sharona. And, as always, a great "Here's what happened..." "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erin | 4/4/2013

    " It wasn't that well written, IMO, but it was semi-enjoyable I guess *shrug*. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 1/7/2013

    " The story was really good but I love watching the series on TV with the great actor that plays Monk. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie | 12/25/2012

    " I always knew that I liked Natalie's character over Sharona's but this book definitely proved it when I saw them side by side. I thought there was a little too much going on and it was hard to keep it up with the plot line in this one. It didn't seem to flow as well. "

    " Mr. Monk is great. Story could be better. "

    " So much sex that I returned it without finishing. I love the Monk TV series, which is very clean, but the books just don't measure up. I was really disappointed. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Flynt | 9/20/2012

    " Over-the-top complicated, not the casual, breezy read the other Mr Monk books have been. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 9/19/2011

    " Monk is weird, obvioulsy, but he is amazing!! He solved a case by watching a guy dance!! don't worry, that's not really the main part of the book, but still!!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 KJ | 9/21/2010

    " Although it may not be up to the standards of deep prize-winning novels, its light-hearted humor and intriguing mysteries makes it a lovable page-turner. :) "

    " boring at times, but grew intrusting. "

    " Easy read but not Goldberg's best "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kadee | 5/29/2010

    " So I saw this in the new section and was excited because I missed Mr. Monk...I have now read all the Mr. Monk's at our library. It is kind of like watching the show in slow motion. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenny | 4/19/2010

    " Since the tv show is no longer on it was nice to have a bit of "Monk." An easy, quick, fun read - I read it in a couple days. It was nice to escape from the craziness that is my life into the much more ordered life of Mr. Monk! "
