Dusty Book: Bad Monkeys by Matt Ruff

 “Bad Monkeys” is slang for the people Jane Charlotte eliminates for “The Department for the Final Disposition of Irredeemable Persons.” This secret information can’t be verified, of course, and Jane’s confessing it from a mental ward as she’s being evaluated to stand trial for murder. Jane’s twisted tales are just plausible enough to be true. She’s one heck of a storyteller, even if she’s not a sci-fi gadget-wielding secret agent. For fans of the raw, dark humor of Josh Bazell.
