Adrian Monk, Detective

Adrian Monk, detective, was once a rising star with the San Francisco Police Department. Monk was legendary for using unconventional methods and out-of-the-box thinking to solve some of the department's most baffling cases. But after the tragic (and still unsolved) murder of his wife Trudy, a devastated Adrian Monk became obsessive-compulsive. Now plagued by various phobias, almost everything causes him angst: germs, heights, crowds - even milk. Adrian Monk's condition eventually cost him his detective job, and continuously poses unique challenges as he goes about his daily life. Adrian Monk is in therapy for his condition, but signs of progress in overcoming his psychological disorder are spotty at best. Now working as a private detective consultant, Monk continues to investigate various cases using his vast intelligence and unconventional approaches. However, Monk would like nothing more than to gain back his position on the force as detective. Can he pull himself together and get back to solving San Francisco's toughest crimes full time?
