In an attempt to discover the common denominator between the eleven victims of a serial killer, Monk links them all to a jury trial six years ago in which a handyman fell off the roof of a wealthy homeowner's pool house. Meanwhile, Sharona finds that dating the deputy mayor can have many benefits but in his anxiety to make a statement to the press, the twelfth juror is mistaken as a suspect in the killings, possibly ruining the deputy's reputation.

This episode was originally titled "Mr. Monk and the Twelfth Victim," apparently referring not to a jury member but to the frozen body of what was actually the first victim. Under its new title, it was nominated for an Edgar Allen Poe Award by the Mystery Writers of America but unfortunately didn't win the award. See more
