Adrian Monk is on a roll?solving murders as fast as they come, and not counting his Wheat Chex until they?re in the bowl. But when his therapist, Dr. Kroger, leaves for Germany, Monk can?t tie his shoes, forgets how to swallow, and loses track of his blinking. Desperate, he follows Dr. Kroger to Germany where he sees a man with six fingers. The man responsible for his wife?s death?or was it just his imagination? Now Monk has to deal with his phobias and the unfriendly polizei to find his man.
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.
Good ol' monk! Now reading the seventh book in the series :)
I love Monk
Mr Monk is the best!
As good as the others
I had no issue with the download and found this to be another enjoyable read, really nice to see Monk on the road, especially in another country.
