Rathbone, having just earned a title from the Queen, could lose everything by taking on a case he shouldn't. Monk and Hester help pull him out of the hole he's gotten himself into. While sometimes Hester is slipped into a nursing position to help solve a case, here she has gotten a position on her own, which turns out to be related to Rathbone's case. As usual, there is a moral to the story. A neatly done story, with the typical spats among Rathbone, Monk, and Hester.

Perry's writing is generally great, but this book seems to lack conhesion in places. Still, a good, tense plot, and interesting story.
