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."
"[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."
From the Publisher
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.
