Good news: My friend Hy Conrad, a writer/producer on MONK from day 1, is the new author of the MONK books! He will be picking up the story right where I left off with my last book, MR. MONK GETS EVEN, which comes out in December. Hy is a terrific writer, a great mystery-plotter, and has written many beloved episodes of show. Fans of the MONK books can rest easy — the series couldn't be in better hands!

Here you have the reason that the Monk novels are so successful:
The operation is kept in-house.
Hy Conrad will hit the ground running (if Adrian Monk would permit such an earthy metaphor …).
And I guess I’d better clear more shelf space.
You Monk stories were rich and funny and tender. I read most of them and enjoyed each one. Thank you for writing them. You lifted me up.
I dunno, it’s like what if Monk ever got a new assistant? Impossible! 🙂
Thank you so much, Richard! I am very flattered and honored.
I loved the series, must get into reading the books.

Awesome to know that the books are going to continue especially with a writer as uniquely qualified to write about Monk as Mr. Conrad is.
