Publisher Comments:

Monk's house is being fumigated, and he has nowhere to go. Fortunately, his assistant Natalie and her daughter are kind enough to welcome him into their home. Unfortunately, their home is not quite up to Monk's standards of cleanliness and order.

But while Monk attempts to arrange his surroundings just so, something else needs to be put straight. The death of a dog at the local firehouse-on the same night as a fatal house fire-has led Monk into a puzzling mystery. And much to his horror, he's going to have to dig through a lot of dirt to find the answer.

Synopsis:

A new series begins, based on the hit show on USA Network, starring Tony Shaloub as brilliant but slightly off-balance sleuth, Adrian Monk. When the dog mascot of a local firehouse dies on the same night as a fatal house fire, Monk is led into a puzzling mystery. Original.

Anyone who has OCD or loves the Monk TV series will adore this book. I'm both and I think it's fabulous.

Debra Hamel/book-blog.com, January 9, 2007 (view all comments by Debra Hamel/book-blog.com)
Lee Goldberg's Mr. Monk Goes to the Firehouse is the first book in a series of mysteries based on the charming television show "Monk," starring Tony Shaloub as the brilliant, obsessive-compulsive detective Adrian Monk. Goldberg's novel, told from the perspective of Monk's assistant, Natalie Teeger, finds Monk investigating a series of related murders, beginning with the death-by-pickaxe of a firehouse dalmation. The quest for Sparky's killer leads Monk far outside his comfort zone--to the city dump, in fact, where the germophobic detective dons a hazmat suit to dig for incriminating garbage. Fans of "Monk" will not be disappointed in Goldberg's addition to the franchise. The story's plot and the characterization of Monk strain credibility in a few spots, but on the whole the book is a great read. Goldberg's dialogue, in particular, is sometimes laugh-out-loud funny.
