On a return trip from Germany, Monk and Natalie stop over in Paris. They visit the catacombs, a vast, underground cavern in the center of the city lined with millions of human bones. Monk picks up a skull and announces that the person was murdered. Most of the bodies came from a battlefield, but Monk believes the wound that killed this man came from a modern weapon made in the last few years. He thinks someone hid a recent murder victim among the ancient bones. As Monk starts to investigate the crime, he uncovers another murder that involves a society of “dumpster divers,” people who live commerce-free off the waste of society. It might just be the last straw in Monk’s visit to Paris.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Full of snippets of slapstick humor and Monk’s special talents for observation, this will appeal to fans of the USA TV show.”

    Library Journal

  • “Like Jessica Fletcher of Murder, She Wrote, Monk can hardly go a day without stumbling over a corpse. En route, he solves the in-flight murder of a fellow airline passenger. Once in Paris, Monk visits a sewer museum, where he notices a fresh skull amid a pile of centuries-old bones.”

    " Maybe I'm just getting tired of these, but dang. There were some laughs to be had and some nice moments between Monk and Natalie. The mystery took a backseat to Paris, though -- the crime wasn't uncovered until around page 100 and I had it solved from the moment they met the perp. And the gag that there are policemen in Paris just like Stottlemeyer and Disher was just used the book before! It was nice to have the real Stottlemeyer and Disher tag along here, though. Natalie's anti-consumerism is something that has added some depth to her in other books in that it's given her something to gripe about besides working for Monk, but it is downright obnoxious here. "

    " I absolutely loved Monk when it was on TV and was so upset it ended (so upset, in fact, that I refuse to watch the finale and admit it's over). These books fuel my denial by helping me think Monk is still on the air. I love reading them; they are so accurate and funny... just like watching the show. In this book, Natalie blackmails Mr. Monk into taking her to Paris, where they encounter not one, not two, but THREE murders (upsetting Natalie's vacation plans in the process). It seems where ever Mr. Monk is, murder finds him... It's a gift, and a curse. "

    " Since I've never watched the television show on which this book is based, I was surprised by the depth of Monk's dysfunction. His assistant Natalie, who is also the narrator, forces Monk to join her in Paris for a vacation. Naturally, he discovers a contemporary skull in the catacombs, and is soon investigating, with Natalie reluctantly tagging along--she wants to sightsee. "

    " Monk is on vacation in Paris. While touring the catacombs, where the bones of millions are on display, he finds a fresh skull, someone dead only a few months. In due course, a woman is murdered trying to tell Natalie and he who the skull was and his vacation suddenly gets better, in his mind with murders to solve. "
