By Crime Mystery Books on January 16th, 2012

Published in January 2007, Mr. Monk and the Blue Flu is the third book in the Monk series and was written by Lee Goldberg.mr-monk-and-the-blue-flu

This book was adapted into the episode of the Monk TV series titled “Mr. Monk and the Badge.” There are differences between the book and the episode, but the gist of the story is the same.

Natalie narrates, as usual in the Monk books.

Fans of the books will really enjoy this one, because it has a compelling story and plenty of the humor that you expect to find in the Monk mysteries. There’s just no one else quite like Monk. Even though the character was really brought to life by Tony Shalhoub on the series, the books do a good job of keeping true to the Adrian Monk that television fans are used to while bringing the character to life on the written page.
