tough egg to crack

Mr. Monk Goes to Hawaii

Mr. Monk Goes to Hawaii is the second novel based on the Monk television series. It was written in 2006 by Lee Goldberg.

Plot summary

Like the first novel in the series, Mr. Monk Goes to the Firehouse, the novel is narrated by Monk's assistant Natalie Teeger.

Monk follows Natalie on her vacation to Hawaii and sets out to investigate murder, car thefts, burglaries, and, scariest of all, towels that are rolled instead of folded. Famed television medium Dylan Swift is eager to help Monk in his homicide investigation—by providing tips from the great beyond from the victims themselves. Monk thinks Swift is a fraud but trying to solve all those crimes...all while coping with geckos and the horror of unsynchronized ceiling fans...may prove a tough coconut to crack.


Lee Goldberg has also written several episodes ("Mr. Monk Goes to Mexico", "Mr. Monk Can't See a Thing") and a previous "Monk" novel "Mr. Monk Goes to the Firehouse".

Goldberg is also the author of the "Diagnosis Murder" novels, which are based on the TV series on which he served as executive producer and principal writer. His other books include "Man With the Iron-On Badge," "Unsold Television Pilots," "Successful Television Writing," and "Beyond the Beyond." His TV writing and/or producing credits include "Martial Law," "Diagnosis: Murder," "Hunter," "Baywatch," "1-800-Missing" and "Monk."
