Mr. Monk Goes to Germany

30 day rental Learn more

Adrian Monk is actually doing well lately. He is solving murders as fast as they come, and he has been noticeably less compulsive—he doesn’t count his morning Wheat Chex until they’re in the bowl. Progress is progress, and Monk knows he owes it all to his therapist, Dr. Kroger. So when Dr. Kroger attends a conference in Germany, Monk ends up in trouble. He can’t tie his shoes, forgets how to swallow, and loses track of his blinking. Desperate to regain his footing, Monk follows his shrink to Germany. And that’s where Monk sees the man across a crowded town sqare—the man he’s never stopped searching for. The man with six fingers. The man responsible for his wife’s death. Or did Monk just imagine crossing paths with him?

Now, in a foreign land full of, well, foreigners, Monk must deal with his multitude of phobias and contend with an especially unfriendly polizei department in order to find the six-fingered man. He also must confront someone who thinks Monk may have just gone officially insane—his own psychiatrist.

Editorial Reviews

“[Mr. Monk Goes to Germany] effectively meets the challenges of translating the screen concept to the page…conveying both the sleuth’s quirks and his genius.”
