We’re assuming the killer picked up the knife in the store.” “Any signs of a break-in?” Monk asked as he began to drift around the room, bobbing and weaving like he was shadow boxing without throwing punches. That’s because it was hard for him to move freely in that bulky suit and his field of vision was limited by the hood and goggles. “No, there wasn’t,”
