Some people think Hawaii is paradise, but Monk knows that danger, like dirt, lurks everywhere. Look at Helen Gruber, the rich tourist who took a fatal blow from a coconut. The police say it fell from a tree, but Monk suspects otherwise. His assistant Natalie isn’t exactly thrilled about Monk’s latest investigation. It was bad enough that Monk followed her on vacation, and now it looks like the vacation is over. Smooth-talking television psychic Dylan Swift is on the island and claims to have a message from beyond—from Helen Gruber. Monk has his doubts about Swift’s credibility. But finding the killer and proving Swift a fraud—all while coping with geckos and the horror of unsynchronized ceiling fans—may prove a tough coconut to crack.

    " I am so far very unimpressed with this book. First we start with the author using something from a television show - Dx Murder, where the patient kills her surgeon using her own body. Then we move onto the very obvious...Natalie's friend is getting married, but Monk doesn't stop the wedding until he is off his medicine, then he points out the glaringly obvious: 1. the man has never been to Austrailia (he states that it was blazingly hot in July when it would have been cold), 2. he never worked a commercial trawler (swordfish do not have teeth and do not bite and are only fished for sport)3. He is not in his 20's (he has a mark from smallpox vaccination which stopped in 1972), 4. He could never have worked for the peace corps, because they never went to the place he claimed he went to. I am sorry, but I caught the swordfish and Austrailia and knew he was not who he claimed to be. It had some very funny parts just like in the show. But it was a fun read, but not something that I would say is excellent. Given to the author's bad attitude for my not marking the entry for spoiler alert, because there was more to the book than what I wrote about, but he is very angry man. "

    " If you love Monk, you'll enjoy this book. It's written from Natalie's perspective. It's not a great mystery and the writing isn't inspiring, but it was a fun and quick read. "

    " Quick, simple read. Captivating but not very complex. "
