When a man dies, alone, in a locked room, his secretary hires Monk because she thinks it could be foul play. It seems the man was the financial backer of Dexter Larsen, the publisher of Sapphire, a men's magazine. It seems that he was going to pull the plug on Larsen. Monk thinks they should talk to Larsen but Stottlemeyer and Disher refuse to assist him until he tells them that they're going to Sapphire mansion. When they get there Monk finds a lot of holes in Larsen's alibi. But before he gets any deeper Larsen threatens to reveal something that stops Monk in his tracks. Written by
