In a new mystery featuring the OCD-afflicted sleuth Adrian Monk, the detective copes with the conflict between two different female assistants--his former aide, Sharona, who returns after her ne'er-do-well husband is arrested for murder, and his new assistant, Natalie--and finds himself up against a clever killer who manages to remain one step ahead of the clever investigator.

Lee Goldberg has written episodes for the USA Network television series Monk, as well as many other programs. He lives in Los Angeles, California. Author website: lgoldberg.com.From Publishers Weekly:
Based on the USA Network show Monk, Goldberg's fourth Adrian Monk novel, the first in hardcover (after Mr. Monk and the Blue Flu), fails to master the many challenges that television adaptations face. The books share the show's sparseness of plot, without the charm of Tony Shalhoub's Emmy-winning portrayal of the obsessive-compulsive genius sleuth. Goldberg's wrinkle this time is to partner Monk's first assistant, Sharona Fleming, whose husband, Trevor, is in prison for murder, with her successor, Natalie Teeger, a widowed California soccer mom who narrates the tale. Natalie is anxious that Sharona might supplant her, a concern not allayed when Monk asks both women to work for him part-time. The puzzle centering on Trevor is fairly thin, and Goldberg throws in several shorter mysteries for Monk to solve almost instantly. While it might have been too much to expect a book from Monk's perspective, even within the confines of Natalie-as-narrator, more could have been done.
