By Crime Mystery Books on January 16th, 2012

The 8th book in the Monk series, Mr. Monk and the Dirty Cop was first published in July 2009 and was written by Lee Goldberg.Mr. Monk and the Dirty Cop

With this book, Monk is finally back in San Francisco solving crimes! Under assumed names. :)

The series continues to improve with this book, gaining more depth and complexity with the addition of every new novel.

Natalie continues to be the narrator of the stories in the Monk books, while the humor of the series translates to the page and gives plenty of laugh out loud moments.

Continuity problems have tapered off, as the television series ends in 2009 and the books are finally able to start incorporating the entire history of the television series without risk of having something change and throw the book off (such as with the 4th book, Mr. Monk and the Two Assistants). Fans are going to enjoy this book especially, as it takes a deeper stab at setting up a good strong mystery.
