Publisher's Summary

Adrian Monk is horrified when he learns there's going to be a blue flu in San Francisco. He doesn't understand what the blue flu is - but it sounds terrible. Captain Stottlemeyer explains that it's not really a virus: the police force 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.

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. But 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.

Crack another case with Monk.

Love Monk, Not the Narrator

I love watching Mr Monk & reading his books. But the narrator on this one annoyed me with the “he said she said” It seemed that after each person spoke it was followed by “Disher said” Teager said” “Monk said”. There were some conversations where that could have been left out.

More Like a Bad Dream Sequence

Just a little out in the left field. I know that these stories follow the TV series- but this one is just seems even more out there than usual. I love Monk. Not sure about this one.

Intriguing study of an introvert offending all

A unique plot twist on Mr Monk to cross everyone who cares for him to follow a dream while the S.F. Police Force is in an unofficial work out.... while I doubted the way the twist & turns could work out Lee G. did the usual great job I've grown accustomed to.. well done!

Really Enjoyed the Listen

I LOVE Mr. Monk! This is my second Monk audio book, and though the story became predictable, the characters were awesome. Monk is hilarious, and Angela Brazil did a great job capturing Natalie's voice and persona.
