Ultimately this book is a cheat, one of those stories that is based around the dishonesty of both the main character and the occasion for meeting that character. If there had been any sort of payoff there might have been some redemption. The author certainly writes well so it's odd that Bad Monkeys is what he ended up with and that his editor agreed that it was ready to go.
A slim, speedy, intricately plotted book with elements of a caper novel and an arch sense of humor. Jane Charlotte is part of a secret government group that eliminates "bad monkeys" in unusual ways. Jane's conundrum? She doesn't know if SHE is one of the "bad monkeys" or not.
Read this book for the quality of the action sequences alone.
Mildly entertaining. a lot packed into 227 pages. Dexter Morgans meets Harry Potter meets the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo meets Men in Black = confusion. But hey, who doesn't love a superhuman chicks with guns fight.
Mildly interesting novel of woman locked away explaining how she works for a super-secret organization that tries to rid the world of evil. Twists and turns, eventually leading nowhere.
Ruff does dialogue as well as Elmore Leonard. Better, maybe. The premise is offbeat and intriguing (the young woman protagonist is a rule-breaker and sounds crazy -- but is she, really? You keep reading to find out...), and the writing is good. It'd be fun to see it made into a movie. You can't take it seriously, but I found it never boring, enjoyed it thoroughly
A fun read but ridiculous and, ultimately, pointless.
