Mr. Monk must be in eighth heaven. First, it's an even number. Second, the TV series is about to start the eighth (and final) season just a month after the eighth novel based on the series is released. The good news for fans of the show is that Mr. Monk and the Dirty Cop is another strong adventure for our favorite police consultant.[…]Fans of the TV series that have missed the novels have truly missed out on some fun. If you aren't obsessive compulsive, Mr. Monk and the Dirty Cop makes as good a place as any to start.
Thanks, Mark! I never noticed all that stuff about the eights…eighth season, eighth book. It makes perfect sense. The natural order of the universe has been maintained.
