An all-new novel starring the obsessively beloved TV detective who always knows when something’s out of place...
Adrian Monk has actually been doing well lately. He’s solving murders as fast as they come, and he’s been noticeably less compulsive. Monk knows he owes it all to his therapist, Dr. Kroger. So when Kroger attends a conference in Germany, Monk hits the skids, reverting to his OCD habits full-time. Desperate, Monk follows his shrink to Germany. And that’s when he sees the man across a crowded town square. A man with six fingers. Monk knows it could be the man responsible for his wife’s death.

Lee Goldberg is a two-time Edgar® Award nominee who has written episodes for numerous shows, including Monk. In addition to the original Monk novels, he is also the author of the acclaimed Diagnosis Murder series based on the show for which he was a writer and executive producer.From Publishers Weekly:
The sixth novel (after 2007's Mr. Monk in Outer Space) based on the popular Monk TV series created by Andy Breckman effectively meets the challenges of translating the screen concept to the page. Monk, an extreme sufferer of obsessive-compulsive disorder who left the San Francisco police department after his journalist wife, Trudy, was killed in a car bombing, decides to accompany his psychotherapist, Dr. Kroger, to a professional conference in Germany so that he won't miss his weekly therapy session. Once in Germany, Monk spots a six-fingered man he believes may have ordered the hit on Trudy. The discovery that the man is an old acquaintance of his psychotherapist leads Monk to investigate Kroger as well. Despite the lack of the TV series' visual humor and the performance of actor Tony Shalhoub, Goldberg does a decent job of conveying both the sleuth's quirks and his genius.
