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.
Editors Note 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. Reprint. 30,000 first printing.
Editors Note 2 Jane Charlotte has been arrested for murder. She says she's a member of a secret organization devoted to fighting evil. She says she's working with the Department for the Final Disposition of Irredeemable Persons—aka "Bad Monkeys." Her confession lands her in the jail's psychiatric wing and earns her countless hours of poking, probing, and questioning by a professional. But is Jane crazy or lying? Or is she playing a whole different game altogether?
