About the book:

Monk's house is being fumigated and he has nowhere to go. Fortunately, his assistant, Natalie, and her daughter are kind enough to take him into their home. To no one's surprise, their home is not quite up to Monk's standards of cleanliness and order.

While Monk attempts to arrange his surroundings just so, he discovers something else that requires his special touch: the puzzling death of a dog at a local firehouse on the same night as a fatal house fire. Much to his horror, Monk is going to have to dig through a lot of dirt to solve this mystery.

Released on: Wednesday, July 5th, 2006


About the book:

Look at Helen Gruber, the rich tourist who took a fatal blow from a coconut. The police say it fell from a tree, but Monk suspects otherwise. His assistant, Natalie, isn't exactly thrilled about Monk's latest investigation. It was bad enough that Monk followed her on vacation, and now it looks as though the vacation is over.

Smooth-talking TV psychic Dylan Swift is on the island and claims to have a message from beyond ... from Helen Gruber. Monk has his doubts about Swift's credibility. But finding the killer and proving Swift a fraud -- all while coping with geckos and the horror of unsynchronized ceiling fans -- may prove a tough coconut to crack!  





Mr. Monk and the Blue Flu

About the book:

Monk is horrified when he learns there's going to be a blue flu in San Francisco -- until Capt. Stottlemeyer explains that it just means the police plan to call in "sick" until they get a better contract.

The good news is that the labor dispute will give Monk a chance to get back on the force. The bad news is it means he'll be a "scab" -- and he doesn't like the sound of that either. But before he knows it, Monk has his badge back, and his own squad to command. Unfortunately, some of the squad members make Monk look like a paragon of mental health.

Despite the challenges, they'll have to pull together to catch an astrologer's killer, solve a series of mysterious fatal assaults, and most importantly, clean up their desks.
