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
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?
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.
