The latest in the series that I just enjoyed, called "Mr. Monk Gets on Board" came out in paperback in May 2014 (there's a newer one out on my "to read" stack).
This is another classic Mr. Monk story involving the OCD detective taking a cruise with Natalie Teeger, his once assistant, now boss of the "Monk and Teeger P.I." business. This story as it turns out, was one the writer originally pitched for the show, but wasn't made for television because the producers couldn't find a cruise to allow them to "stage a murder or two" because it looked bad for business, even if it was just for television.

Another in the series that I HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Come to think of it, every book in the series has been that way- and I highly recommend all of them.
There are very few mystery books that I keep, but the Mr. Monk series is one, and Murder She Wrote is the other! - Rob
