In this latest installment of the officially sanctioned tie-in novels, Lee Goldberg takes Monk and Natalie away from the familiar streets of San Francisco, to the town of Summit, NJ, to come to the aid of Police Chief (and now acting mayor) Randy Disher. Randy has inherited a town rife with scandal, and needs to augment his tiny six member department with reinforcements--namely Monk and Natalie.
The biggest crime problem has been a series of robberies, but where Monk goes, bodies are sure to follow. But this book is more than just a satisfying mystery.
Reading a Monk book is a lot like having lunch with an old friend--pleasant even if that old friend happens to be plagued with obsessive compulsive disorder, phobias, and a host of issues that would, in real life, probably make people run away screaming. Yes, he's funny. Yes, it's entertainment. But at the root of the attachment is a character whom people have come to care about--a troubled man thrown further off-course by the murder of his wife. We want him to recover, only we want him to remain Adrian Monk.
Kudos to Lee for doing both in this book. While each book of the series is entertaining on some level, this particular entry brings added depth into the characterizations of Monk and Natalie. Monk is not off somewhere separating the mixed nuts. He is making strides of improvement--breakthroughs that surprise both Monk and Natalie.
And Natalie is not just handing wet wipes, either. She's growing in competence, confidence, and responsibility. And in this installment, more than any time in the past, she comes alive and is instantly relatable.Read more ›
Like the other Monk novels, this is about crime and detection, and about Monk's uncanny ability to sift bits of evidence out of the things that elude the rest of us. But there is more here that Monk fans will cherish. Here is progress; Monk's and Natalie's quiet journey toward happier and richer lives.
Lee Goldberg writes with grace and insight, focusing tenderly on his characters' lives and aspirations, and in the end, we readers feel closer to Mr. Monk and Natalie than ever before. His particular gift, one of many, is his ability to draw characters vividly. He is one of the finest novelists writing.
This story was especially lovely because of the development of Mr. Monk and Natalie - and of Randy and Sharona, to a smaller degree. They are still the same characters I know and love, but they are growing and changing in positive ways. There is even more of a depth to them, and to their relationships. They just grow more endearing over time.
While this is all very pleasing, it also makes me sad because I don't want the stories to end. I suppose they must, but I don't have to like it!!!! I am really happy with their progress as people though, and I love that the books that came after the TV series ended have been so true to the spirit of the show. It feels like they picked right up where they left off, with a more hopeful future for Mr. Monk and the gang.
But I still really, really, really don't want the books to end!!! (Pretty please!!!)
