MR. MONK AND THE AMAZON REVIEW

I have finally posted my review of Mr. Monk Goes to the Firehouse at Amazon.com:
Novelist (and TV writer) Lee Goldberg does a remarkable job of capturing the wit and spark of the series, while exploring the possibilities that come with a different medium. The story is told from the point of view of Natalie, adding more layers to the narrative than possible in a regular episode. (And, conveniently, also explains away any discontinuity between the novel and the show.) And, as with his also-excellent "Diagnosis Murder" novels (based on another popular TV mystery series), Goldberg has the uncanny knack of hiding mysteries within mysteries. Just when the reader thinks he or she has something figured out -- and is probably right -- the author often cleverly hides something else in plain sight.
