mr monk and the new l
My son Kris was never one for reading just for fun. He was more of a video game kind of guy, but he loved the Monk television show and when I started receiving these books for review he was actually excited to read them. They would quickly disappear from my To-Be-Read shelf and returned a couple of weeks later in pristine condition and we would usually have quite a discussion about the book. When I was looking for a book to feature today I found this book on my keeper shelf. I don’t remember Kris taking this one, I remember telling him it was here when he was here for Christmas. I don’t know how or why it would be on the keeper shelf, because I share most of my books with you. One of the grandchildren could have moved it, but I think I’ll take it as a sign from Kris that he read and really enjoyed the book. Wish we could have talked about it. I know he would want me to share it with you.

Welcome to the series of original mysteries starring Adrian Monk, the brilliant investigator who always knows when something’s out of place….

Monk and Natalie have finally settled into a new office routine—but the detectives soon have another problem to deal with: Captain Stottlemeyer’s new lieutenant, A. J. Thurman—a man of limited skills whom Monk finds insufferable.

Despite Thurman’s presence, Monk and Natalie attend the funeral of Judge Oberlin, and it’s a good thing. In typical fashion, Monk examines the body in the casket—and finds evidence of poison. The judge was murdered.

When Captain Stottlemeyer shows the same symptoms the judge had shown, Monk detects the work of a diabolical killer who wants both men dead. With his friend in danger and an enemy close, Monk will have to put his reservations aside to crack the case in time.
