Published in December 2009, Mr. Monk in Trouble is the 9th book in the Monk series written by Lee Goldberg.Mr. Monk in Trouble book cover

In a clever change for the Monk books, Mr. Monk in Trouble introduces someone who just might be an ancestor of Adrian Monk. An assayer named Artemis Monk, who spent time in the gold rush mining town of Trouble, California in the mid 1800s.

Artemis appears to have a lot of the same fastidious, obsessive-compulsive behaviors as Monk.

Natalie tells the story with the same humor as all the other books, and between her and Monk, they have to work to solve both a murder and a botched train robbery from 1962.

Fans will enjoy the chance to meet another Monk!
