spent on patrol with Mr. Monk. I really miss watching Mr. Monk solving murders in his own inimitable way on television, but I have the say that the books have turned out to be even better. The latest paperback release, Mr. Monk on Patrol, is the best one yet. If you're a Monk fan, you know that Randy Disher moved to Summit, New Jersey at the end of the series to be with Sharona. He's the chief of police there and it seems he is having some difficulties with some city corruption. He asks Monk and Natalie to head east and work with him for a few weeks to help catch some serial burglars. I can't spoil the plot, but hilarity ensues, particularly when Mr. Monk meets a lady who runs a gift shop which sells items manufactured from, well, poop. As you might imagine, Mr. Monk is horrified to the point of donning a hazmat suit to extract Natalie from the store. It is purely delightful, purely Monk entertainment from beginning to end. Not a bad way to spend an evening. If you are a Monk fan, check out the mysteries - you will be glad you did!
