Adrian Monk is actually doing well lately. He is solving murders as fast as they come, and he has been noticeably less compulsive—he doesn’t count his morning Wheat Chex until they’re in the bowl. Progress is progress, and Monk knows he owes it all to his therapist, Dr. Kroger. So when Dr. Kroger attends a conference in Germany, Monk ends up in trouble. He can’t tie his shoes, forgets how to swallow, and loses track of his blinking. Desperate to regain his footing, Monk follows his shrink to Germany. And that’s where Monk sees the man across a crowded town sqare—the man he’s never stopped searching for. The man with six fingers. The man responsible for his wife’s death. Or did Monk just imagine crossing paths with him?

Now, in a foreign land full of, well, foreigners, Monk must deal with his multitude of phobias and contend with an especially unfriendly polizei department in order to find the six-fingered man. He also must confront someone who thinks Monk may have just gone officially insane—his own psychiatrist.

    " Here I am, still telling everyone I wouldn't like reading crime novels... But then, MONK isn't really about crime. It's always been about Adrian Monk and his thousands of different phobias and other issues. When Lee Goldberg, one of the show's writers, started releasing MONK books I started reading them as a bonus to bridge the summer break before the next season. Now that MONK is over, it's funny to see this highly ammusing character continue in printed form. And with Tony Shaloub's hillarious portrait in the series, it's actually quite simple to see all of Monk's weird ticks in front of you while you read the books... I guess you have to be a fan of the series to like the books, but they're an entertaining way to kill some time, like when on a bus. On the other hand, who doesn't like Monk?! "

    " Another quick read with some very funny parts, but way to obvious clues as to who the murder is. But he makes the police into bumbling fools who cannot figure things out for themselves. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura Cushing | 1/19/2014

    " When Monk's psychiatrist Dr. Kroger goes on vacation to attend a psychiatric conference in Germany, there's only one thing Mr. Monk can do. Fall apart! Well that, or follow him to Germany. Monk overcomes his fear of flying by taking the drug that makes him less OCD at the expense of his detective skills. While in Germany, he sees the six fingered man he's sure arranged his wife Trudy's murder. But things are not always as they seem, even when you're a brilliant detective. This book is a solid entry in the Monk series, and features some good plot development. There's a direct sequel to it, Mir Monk is Miserable, that I'l be reading next. "

    " This book is pretty much the definition of "It was OK." The mystery was fine. Parts of the book were funny. The dialogue rang absolutely true to the TV series, but Natalie's first person narration was 100% unbelievable. (Her dialogue was fine.) "
