Overview

Obsessive. Compulsive. Detective.



An all-new original mystery starring Adrian Monk, the brilliant investigator who always knows when something’s out of place...



Of all the things that make Adrian Monk uneasy, change ranks high on the list. So when Natalie completes her P.I. license—and technically becomes Monk’s boss—it’s not easy for him to accept. Nor can he accept Natalie attending a business seminar at sea without him, even if it means spending a week with her on a cruise ship.



Between choppy waters and obnoxious kids, Monk finds himself in a perfect storm of anxiety. Luckily, Mariah, the cruise director, is always able to smooth things over…until someone pulls the man overboard alarm, the ship drops anchor—and the crew fishes Mariah’s dead body out of the water.



Finding alcohol in Mariah’s system, the ship’s doctor declares her death an accident, but Monk isn’t convinced. He knows that Mariah and the captain were having an affair. Could someone have pushed her overboard?



When the captain hires Monk and Natalie to look into a mysterious rash of vandalism onboard, Monk steers the investigation toward murder…

    I'm a quick reader. I finished this book in a day and a half not because it was an easy read but because it was so good.,
    It's the perfect kind of mystery, no language, no inappropriate situations, lots of mystery. It kept personal views out of it such as politics.
    Was the kind of mystery you wanted to be able to give everybody to be able to read, children, parents, friends. 
    And due to all the mystery going on in the book kept me guessing to the very end. Which is very rare.

    Mr. Monk Gets On Board is the 17th book on Monk from the TV seri

    Mr. Monk Gets On Board is the 17th book on Monk from the TV series of the same name and the third by Hy Conrad.

    Natalie Teeger has formed the Teeger and Monk, Consulting Detectives LLC are getting her PI license and is wondering what it will be like to be Monk's boss, rather than his assistant. Natalie is well aware that Monk is a brilliant investigator, but Natalie is sure that the only difficult thing will be working with monk's OCD. Most of their cases come from the San Francisco Police Department.

    Their first case involves the murder of Lester Melrose in the library of his exquisite mansion and having been killed by someone using a statue of Homer. The only people who live there, in a addition to Lester, is his son, his butler and Portia Braun. Also at the mansion when Natalie and Monk went to begin their investigation is Malcolm Leeds. Leeds is a book expert who is there to authenticate the extensive collection of books. Leed's soon convinces Natalie to book passage on the Golden Sun for their business conference aboard ship. Shortly after they set sail, Mariah, the cruise director, falls to her death from the ship. Then other events happen aboard ship and Monk and Natalie begin to wonder if they are pranks or they might be related to Mariah' death.

    A fun, funny and quick read.

    I will probably be reading more of these books.

    Natalie Teeger finally gets her P.I. license. She and Detective

    Natalie Teeger finally gets her P.I. license. She and Detective Adrian Monk now have their own detective agency, although Natalie is technically Monk’s boss. He’s not thrilled with this turn of events but he’s even less thrilled when Natalie decides to go to a business seminar on a cruise ship. Monk can’t think of anything worse than spending a week on a ship but he’s not about to let Natalie go without him.

    Monk’s idiosyncrasies drive everyone crazy on the ship, although Natalie is more than used to Monk’s strange ways. Luckily for them, the cruise director Mariah Linkletter is experienced in dealing with all types of people and manages to handle Monk as well. When Mariah goes overboard and her dead body is dragged from the water, Monk is on the job. Her death is declared an accident by the ship's doctor, but Monk knows better. Together, Natalie and Monk are on the case and vow to find out what really happened to the one person on board that had been nice to them.

    I didn’t watch the Monk TV series when it originally aired, but this is the second Monk book I read – both by Hy Conrad - and I absolutely loved both. I guess I’m proof that you don’t have to be a fan of the show to enjoy these books. It wasn't so much a "whodunnit" mystery as a "how did they do it" mystery. It was enjoyable to watch Monk and Natalie try to unravel this one.

    There are so many eccentric characters (besides Monk) and the humor is weaved through each page of the book. The author paints each scene so vividly that I could see it play out in my head as I was reading. There’s a hint of romance, but mainly it focuses on the unique relationship and friendship between Monk and Natalie. I do hope this series continues and someday I hope to read the backlist of books including the ones by Lee Goldberg. I, also, do plan to watch the series. I think I’d really enjoy it.

    Monk walks on water

    A novel scene for our favorite OCD detective and his assistant Natalie Teeger, the cruise from hell.
    Overboard crew, a mysterious death of a wealthy elderly businessman, a fraudulent copy of Shakespeare's plays, a foreign born professor and a antique bookseller all conspire to make this a romp of a read.
    Enjoy the cruise, just don't stand too close to the rail!
