A man is playing a flute in front on Monk's building and is burning candles and putting flowers on the street. Monk approaches the man and asks him to stop but he says he is doing all of the things for his dead wife, She was killed at this spot by a hit and run driver. The man is from Nigeria and he was coming to visit his wife who was in the city for a conference when she was killed. Monk takes him in and he looks into his wife's death. Stottlemeyer is investigating the death of a maid and wants Monk to help. But Monk prefers to help the Nigerian, Stottlemeyer tells Monk he is doing this because he still doesn't know what happened to Trudy. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com
