Publisher Comments:

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.

GelatisScoop, January 10, 2011 (view all comments by GelatisScoop)
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.

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.

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.
