Hello ! I’ve read that the 17th novel would be entitled ‘Mr.Monk Gets On Board.’ I’m quite curious about this one ! 🙂 Could you tell us more about this novel (the general plot) ? Thanks a lot for continuing the series ! 🙂

Number 17 will be based on the one Monk TV episode that was never filmed. We thought it would be great to put Monk on a cruise ship. But no cruise line would let us film, not unless we did away with the murder on board. For years we tried to get it done. And now it will be… in book form. Natalie attends a week-long shipboard business conference and Monk insists on going along, despite his fear of almost everything, including the buffets.
