Lee Goldberg

by Lorie Lewis Ham



I have loved Monk ever since I first discovered the TV show early on, and have enjoyed being able to continue experiencing his adventures through Lee Goldberg’s books. While I have enjoyed every book, I think Mr. Monk Gets Even may be my favorite.

Mr. Monk Is A Mess picks up where Mr. Monk On Patrol left off, with Natalie and Monk working as cops in Summit, New Jersey for Randy Disher who is Sheriff there and acting Mayor. They have both decided to take the jobs permanently and have only to return to San Francisco to pack up their things and move. And of course break the news to Natalie’s daughter Julie and their friends.

KRL had the wonderful pleasure of interviewing mystery and TV writer Lee Goldberg, who was a writer for the Monk TV show and now continues the stories in books. I don’t know if he remembers this, but I first met Lee at a Left Coast Crime Convention in San Diego in the late 90’s when I attended his panel on Star Trek and Mysteries. After the interview is a review of the latest Monk book, Mr. Monk on the Road, & a chance to win a copy of this book!
