Mr. Monk and the Blackout
Captain Stottlemeyer takes a page from the Book of Monk in order to determine why anyone would want to murder the world's oldest man. The two are aided in their investigation by Karen Stottlemeyer. As the elderly residents of the Malden Retirement Home relax after dinner, just down the hall, a shadowy figure dressed as a security guard enters the room of Miles Holling , the world's oldest man who is just one day shy of his th birthday, throws him down onto his bed, and suffocates him with a pillow. Captain Stottlemeyer's wife Karen , who once profiled Holling in a documentary film she made, suspects that the elderly man's death was no accident: for one thing, he was found dead in the bed, but Karen is aware that Miles slept in a chair because he was afraid he'd never wake up again if he slept in the bed. There was also a book over his chest, like he'd been reading, but Karen knows that Miles couldn't read because he was almost blind. Leland is skeptical, believing that he likely died of natural causes.
