This is my favorite novel of the series (thus far)! It isn't nearly as dark and grim as some of the other Monk mysteries. I won't spoil anything, but Monk has a major personal epiphany--don't miss this one if you're following the series.

Convoluted, YES
Surprises, Lots
Involved in the STORY - Very DEFINITELY
Finish - with a DOUBLE punch !

This is an early attempt by the novelist and the plot lines are confusing. I don't have to be told more than once how difficult it was for the Victorian Woman to hold her ground in a misogynist society; author was often heavy handed in point this out to the reader. This is really 3 murder mysteries shuffled awkwardly together in one story, I expect her later novels showed improvement in her craft.
