Jane Charlotte claims to be a member of a secret organization--the Bad Monkeys--devoted to ridding the world of especially evil people. As Janes tale grows increasingly bizarre, a psychiatrist tries to sort truth from lies. Is she lying or crazy, or is her tale unbelievably true?
From the Publisher:
Confessing that she is a member of a secret organization dedicated to assassinating bad guys, murder suspect Jane Charlotte lands in a psychiatric hospital, where she recounts her increasingly bizarre life as a trained killer. By the author of Set This House in Order. 30,000 first printing.Confessing that she is a member of a secret organization dedicated to assassinating bad guys, murder suspect Jane Charlotte lands in a psychiatric hospital, where she recounts her increasingly bizarre life as a trained killer.
Annotation:
In the psychiatric ward of the Las Vegas County Jail, a psychologist is interviewing alleged murderer Jane Charlotte. She claims to be a member of a secret society dedicated to eradicating evil, a member of the Department for the Final Disposition of Irredeemable Persons, and her weapon of choice was a Natural Causes Gun that could be set to heart attack, stroke, or coma. And so begins Matt Ruff's ingeniously paranoid sci-fi tale, an action-packed romp filled with cutting satire, mind-bending plot twists, and devilish moral quandaries (it's no coincidence that both the evil-doers and the people who hunt them are known as "bad monkeys"). Ruff has already garnered a cult status with his genre-bending take on the fantasy novel (FOOL ON THE HILL), and BAD MONKEYS should cement his reputation as a young writer to watch.

Praise

"[Matt] Ruff has animated BAD MONKEYS with the spirit of Philip K. Dick, and he's borrowed a little seasoning from Jim Thompson and Thomas Pynchon....It moves fast and keeps surprising you. There are also some exciting and hallucinatory action sequences that are so skillfully written I felt as if I was watching the first MATRIX movie." - Jonathan Ames 08/26/2007

"[BAD MONKEYS has] so many ingenious fake-out layers that readers will find their heads spinning with awed delight by the book's frenetic climax." - Paul Di Filippo 08/08/2007
