Beating the system!
12 January 2010 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Daniel Thorn and his wife are preparing to go to a gala event. They live at the penthouse of one of the most amazing hotels in Las Vegas. Sheryl Thorn, the attractive wife, loves to wear long scarves, which she claims are her "signature". As they arrive downstairs, she looks in her purse and realizes she doesn't have the tickets. When she turns to her husband, he checks, and he doesn't have them either. She offers to go back in their private elevator. Her long scarf gets caught in the closing doors and she arrives strangled when the elevator reaches her floor.

Sottlemeyer, who is in Las Vegas attending a bachelor party with a few of the officers, calls Monk to tell him something he saw that is connected to the accidental death of Sheryl. Monk, who realizes there is a serious situation at hand, decides to go to Sin City to see what is going on. Natalie and Monk arrive at the suite the guys are occupying and can't believe the mess in the rooms. Stottlemeyer is suffering from a bad hangover. Monk can't get anything coherent out of him.

Monk sets out to begin delving into the mysterious death of such a prominent person. His instincts take him in different directions, but he centers everything in going after the powerful Daniel Thorn, who he feels knows much more than he is telling. Thorn, in turn, is not too shy to let Adrian about his power in a city where having it all is like a drug.

Randy is having a tough time at the casino. He has a booklet that is supposed to help him how to play. Unfortunately, he loses every time he places a bet at the blackjack table. His losses are in the $35,000 range. Monk, who senses the problem, asks Randy to stay away and, surprisingly, wins almost all of the money back.

Stottlemeyer, who knew something about the mystery, tries to retrace his steps by going into the karaoke lounge where he was a hit the night before. It is there that he remembers what he saw the night when Sheryl was killed. Monk solves the case by looking into Daniel Thorn's other love interest.

Randall Zisk directed the episode. The screenplay is credited to Daniel Dratch and Joe Toplyn. Although not as satisfying as some others, it is still a lot of fun as we follow Monk through a place he abhors. James Brolin, the guest star, appears as Daniel Thorn. Good ensemble playing by Tony Shalhoub, Ted Levine, Jason Gray-Stanford and Traylor Holland.
