3 MONK hardcover book set: MR. MONK GOES TO
Since this hardcover set covers three books, I'll have to chain up my reviews of each book. It's a triplicious take on a trilogy!      MR. MONK AND THE TWO ASSISTANTS   …
reviewed Scam. October 08, 2010
I mean this in the nicest possible way, but Stanley Hastings -- Parnell Hall's New York private investigator -- is not the sharpest knife in the drawer, if you know what I mean. But he is the funniest …
