Reprint. Published in Scotland. Originally published: as The big Q. London: Review, 2001.

Three men from Coatbridge set out for Italy to find a monk reputed to possess healing powers in order to help psychiatrically disturbed Jimmy Brogan.

However, when they arrive on the mountain, they find that healing isn't that easy to come by.

This is a funny, provocative story of redemption. As the characters learn that the monastery cannot provide sanctuary from Jimmy's past, they are all challenged to face their own lives. "Monks" was originally published by Hodder as "The Big Q".
