I believe this is the first MONK novel that this author wrote.
It was entertaining, and I could see the characters and situations that the author was creating.
Although he had the spirit of the characters, I couldn't decide if it is the narrator, or the character Natalie that is whinny.
But after this revelation and seeing another episode of MONK, it is the character and the author did a good job of capturing that aspect of her.
The reason I gave this book a 4 star instead of 5 is because the author insists on using the word 'said' too much (in my opinion). Then the characters talk to each other all you zero in on is 'said... said... said...' , a little annoying but tolerable.
Overall, if you are a MONK fan you will most likely get a kick out of this book.

Love the Monk TV series but had a difficult time finishing the book because of the terrible narration. The narrator struggled with the various voices. Unfortunately, she was simply unpleasant to listen to.
The story was decent but made Monk seem even more ridiculous than the TV show. In the show, Monk is a growing person, little by little overcoming his "disability". In the book he just seems silly and ridiculous.
I'm not sure if I will listen to the next book or not.
