Lawyered up
14 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Monk quickly figures out that a husband, a long-haired sculptor with a surly attitude, killed his wife, but then must face the accused man's lawyer, played by Jay Mohr. The lawyer and Monk have crossed swords before, and the lawyer soon makes mincemeat of Monk's testimony. The killer walks, but as we have seen before, you don't want to cross Mr. Monk. In a subplot, a young man whom Disher once mentored is accused of killing a store clerk. Disher asks for Monk's help, and pretty soon ... well, see the episode for yourself. Mohr and Shalhoub play off each other very well. And wait until you find out what happened to a missing two-ton piece of quartz, which has to do with the surly artist with the dead wife (again, see the episode).
