  • At last - Monk best in shape.

    A brilliant chess player against Mr Monk. It's an extraordinary battle which seems that Mr Monk can't win anymore. But it wouldn't be Monk if he couldn't catch the bad people at all. The chess player's wife paid Monk to catch her husband when he would have killed her. The plan seemed to work out and Monk has nothing in his hand against him - except for the recipe how the player did it. But where there is no proof there is no accused. It seems as if the chess player is continuously ahead of the enemy.
    In this second episode Mr Monk is back at best. He is brilliant, his brain seeems to work at highest level and like in a jigsaw puzzle he brings together all the tiny parts and doesn't give up - until he can say "I have solved the case".
