Matt Ruff delineates the forces of good and evil in this twisty tale of secret organizations told in the interrogation room of a Las Vegas hospital by a woman who claims to be an operative whose job it is to kill "bad monkeys". Bad Monkeys is organization slang for evil humans. And oh yes, Virginia, there is evil in the world, and there are people out there fighting it, watching for it, and zapping it in the middle of the night.

From official release/information:

Product Description:

Jane Charlotte has been arrested for murder.

She tells police that she is a member of a secret organization devoted to fighting evil; her division is called the Department for the Final Disposition of Irredeemable Persons—"Bad Monkeys" for short.

This confession earns Jane a trip to the jail's psychiatric wing, where a doctor attempts to determine whether she is lying, crazy—or playing a different game altogether. What follows is one of the most clever and gripping novels you'll ever read.
