Storyline

While delivering Monk's newspaper, the paperboy is killed by somebody intent on stealing the paper. The detective's apartment is subsequently filled with police as they investigate the crime. The invasion of the numerous and untidy cops as well as a visit from Monk's bizarre neighbor rattle poor Adrian, who concludes that the thief was trying to keep Monk from seeing something in the paper. Sharona gets Monk out of the apartment by taking him to the convenience store to buy a paper. Monk pores through the paper, solving unrelated crimes as he reads, despite the interruptions from his annoying neighbor. Another murder, this time of the convenience store clerk, confuses things somewhat. However, Monk eventually ends up on the right track. Written by John Hosking
