Published in July 2006, Mr. Monk Goes to Hawaii is the second book in the Monk series and was written by Lee Goldberg.Mr. Monk Goes to Hawaii

Fans of Monk will enjoy the chance to follow Monk as he solves an all new mystery–in Hawaii, no less! Mr. Monk Goes to Hawaii makes use of the medicine Monk was prescribed from the third season episode titled Mr. Monk Takes His Medicine and I think that was a brilliant move on the part of the author.

Tying in the series and the books can be tricky because of continuity issues and this book was published while the series was still airing. (The series didn’t end until 2009.) Even those who haven’t watched episodes of Monk will enjoy these clever mysteries, so don’t pass this up just because you haven’t seen Monk on TV!

Again, Natalie Teeger, Monk’s assistant, narrates the story from her point of view. This is a departure from the television series, in which no one narrates and Monk is the central character. But although Natalie narrates, this is Monk’s story.

There’s a paperback, hardcover, and Kindle edition at Amazon. There’s also an ebook edition that will work with most ebook readers and a highly rated audio version available elsewhere too.

There have been a few negative comments made about the narration of the audio book, so if you’re not sure which to buy, go for the print book. It will be a nice addition to your bookshelves and expand your Monk memorabilia collection!

Mr. Monk Goes to Hawaii Summary Description

This is the second book in the mystery series featuring Adrian Monk, a brilliant, obsessive, compulsive, “defective” detective from the television series MONK.

Monk follows Natalie on vacation to Hawaii, where a wealthy tourist named Helen Gruber takes a fatal blow from a coconut, and although it’s ruled an accident, Monk doesn’t think so. Then there’s the television psychic Dylan Swift claiming he has a message from Helen Gruber from beyond the grave. Monk must solve the murder and prove that Dylan Swift is the fraud Monk believes him to be.
