Another funny, laugh out loud at times, adventure of our favorite obsessive-compulsive detective.

Monk and Natalie return to San Francisco to close up things, having accepted permanent jobs with Randy Disher in Summit, New Jersey, where they had been temporary cops to help out while things were being reorganized after the entire city government had been arrested for corruption.

As usual around Monk, dead bodies pop up, this one a young woman in Natalie's bathtub with wrists and throat cut. There was also the matter of five thousand dollars in her purse and the five thousand bundle under Natalie's mattress.

The FBI became interested in that it was learned the bills were marked, part of a sting to nab a mobster and had been stolen from evidence lock-up in FBI headquarters. Since Monk had cleared the mobster of two crimes in the past, the FBI assumed he was part of the theft, and Natalie as well.

At the same time, Monk's brother Ambrose calls for help. Yuki, his live-in lover, was missing and the police refused to take him seriously because he called a number of times a day about infractions spotted from the windows of his home, which he never left.

A lot of fun, this one, and only one more Monk novel to come before Lee leaves the series. I believe another writer will take over.
