    Lee Goldberg is the grandmaster of capturing the essences of TV mystery shows' personalities

    Adrian Monk suffers a severe case of obsessive compulsive disorder so intense that he is a walking encyclopedia of phobias that makes it impossible for him to operate in the outside world without assistance. With Natalie's help, Monk, a former cop, earns a living as a consultant to the police mostly SFPD. He actually has recently found relief because t the murder of his wife Trudy back in 1997 has been solved. To celebrate, Monk decides to visit his agoraphobic brother Ambrose for his sibling's birthday.

    Monk wants to show the world to Ambrose who has not left his home in years. He puts sleeping pills in the cake and places a knocked out Ambrose in his RV camper. Shockingly Ambrose awakens and is not raging at his brother. Along the highway, Monk finds crimes that he cannot ignore though Natalie refuses to allow him to solve them because this is Ambrose's time. Instead Monk silently works the puzzles in his head until he finds a frightening pattern of a serial killer in the area.

    Lee Goldberg is the grandmaster of capturing the essences of TV mystery shows' personalities as he has done with Monk through eleven novels and Diagnoses Murder. He does it again with this brisk Monk road show as the multi-phobic hero hits the highway with his agoraphobic sibling and his assistant Natalie. On the road, Monk solves crimes as Natalie pleads with him to take a respite and enjoy the scenery, but though she keeps them moving so he cannot narrowly focus on a crime rather than the trip she ends up also assisting him when she can no longer ignore him. Fans will enjoy the brisk ride as the siblings (and Natalie) get out of the house, sort of.

    Monk Lives on With These Fun Books.

    The TV show may be gone, but Monk lives on with these fun Monk mystery books. No, they aren't great literature,but if you miss the show,these books keep the character alive. They're just as fun as the TV show. In this installment, Monk forces Ambrose out of the house and on the road to adventure.
    I've heard of rumors of a made-for-TV Monk movie. It it's true, I can't wait.

    Mr. Monk I love you!

    Being a fan of the Monk t.v. series I could imagine each of the characters. This would have been great. I laughed so hard at some of banter I cried. Anyone who is a fan of Monk or doesn't know too much about him will enjoy this Monk. Mr. Monk you did it again!!!

    best one yet

    I read this so fast because it was great. I will say though that the details about the trip were a little too much, I got bored by that, maybe another murder along the way would have been more interesting...but overall this was a great story.....

    Gelati's Scoop

    Has anyone caught on to the fact that I am a big Lee Goldberg and Mr. Monk fan? Hopefully you have , but don't take the comments I make in this post on Mr. Monk on the Road as those of a homer or stalker. Everything I am about to write is dead on target. This is probably the best Monk novel that Lee Goldberg has written by far, plain and simple, flat out awesome! To the book flaps:
    "Monk's out on the open highway-but crime is a hitchhiker that won't be ignored.
    With his job secure and his wife's murder finally solved, Adrian Monk is feeling strangely...satisfied. He'd like his agoraphobic brother Ambrose to feel the same way, so Monk puts a secret ingredient in Ambrose's birthday cake: sleeping pills. When Ambrose wakes up, he's in a motorhome on the open road with Monk determined to show him the outside world.
    But Ambrose isn't the only one struggling to let go. As little crimes pop up along the highway, Monk can't resist getting involved. Now it's up to Monk to stop a murderer from turning their road trip into a highway to hell."
    Balance, even numbers, incredible scenery, the Monk's match the peanut shell game, illicit drugs, incredible martinis, bubble gum and murder all have something to do with this engaging, quick read. I was lucky enough to take this in all at one time; the pages were flying through my fingertips. Lee Goldberg gives the triumvirate of Adrian & Ambrose Monk and Natalie all the ink in this edition of the series. Stottlemeyer and the new addition, Lieutenant Devlin, get a little bit of action, but just about the entire story revolves around the exploits of the three amigos as they go out in the RV.
    What is the genesis of my statement that this is by far the best of the series? The series is no more, and Lee Goldberg has done things with this novel he has not in the past, really taken the characters and fleshed them out more, gotten inside their heads, exposed their feelings and emotions on a level that hasn't been done before. He's taken the characters past anything they have done in the past, and basically gave them a unique sense of self, where they stand with each other and the world, and a balance and symmetry that the characters have always craved but never had. This for me is the complete Mr. Monk novel: fun, tongue in cheek, over the top insanity mixed with equal parts mystery, action and an ending that ties everything up into a nice package.
    My bobblehead has his swagger back and a big smile as he sits on my desk staring at me. The question I think the bobblehead has for me to ask, "Can Lee Goldberg pump one of these out every week so I can read them at 9pm every Friday evening?" Here's hoping.
