Great Mystery! Mr. Monk Gets Even

The Mr. Monk detective TV series that ran for almost a decade in the 2000s spawned a really enjoyable, fun, interesting, fantastic series of books. Authored by Lee Goldberg, who wrote many episodes of the TV series, the books truly embody the characters.  I've read 13 other in the series and "Mr. Monk Gets Even" is just as great as the others. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
BOOK SYNOPSIS:  The future is looking bright for Adrian Monk. Natalie is working as a cop in Summit, New Jersey, Monk's brother is a week away from getting married, and Monk has a new assistant, Natalie's daughter—and Monk even has a girlfriend who sells products like paper, etc. made of poop!  Hysterical because Monk is OCD about cleanliness!
   All this change doesn’t keep him from work, though. He’s investigating a string of accidental deaths and suicides that he believes are actually murders. But when Monk’s suspect is killed, he must face the fact that he might be wrong. Have stability and happiness robbed Monk of his mojo?
   Meanwhile, Monk’s imprisoned arch nemesis, the morbidly obese criminal mastermind Dale the Whale, is being transferred from prison to San Francisco General Hospital for an operation. When Dale escapes and all signs point to Captain Stottlemeyer as his accomplice, Monk will have to reboot his detective skills to clear the captain’s name—and prove that he’s still the one and only Monk.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
