Monk and Stotllemeyer are investigating the death of a woman. But suddenly another murder occurs wherein the person was killed in an unusual manner. And a note is left on the body saying that there will be more in about 30 hours. A special unit shows up to take charge of the case and they tell them that nothing else matters even the woman whose murder they were investigating. Monk thinks the time on the note is strange. And they appear to be chasing their tails. Monk thinks something else is going on but the man in charge of the unit doesn't think so. Written by
