Okay, it is no secret that I love Monk, the show and all of the books by Goldberg. These two are the latest in the series, though there's a new one, Mr. Monk is Cleaned Out, coming in a few months I think. They are awesome as usual. Monk, of course, solves not only the mysteries he's hired to solve but also any others lying about. I love them most because they present this brilliant man who is damn near crippled by OCD in not only a sympathetic light but also a true one. He isn't a joke or a fall guy...he's just Monk.
