Monk is desperate to keep the parking garage where Trudy was murdered so many years ago from being demolished for a playground which has huge citywide support. He thinks he has a councilwoman behind his efforts but when she suddenly vanishes, he must deal with a ditsy assistant to the councilwoman. When a vacationing couple turn up dead, Monk begins to think their murders have to do with the missing councilwoman. But do they? And is Tudy's place of murder a rightful reason to stop a good community development project for neighborhood children? Written by
